Best Free iPhone Apps

If you thought Wednesday’s roundup of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free was good, wait until you dig into today’s list. We’ve got eight fresh apps for you on Thursday, and they’re all free downloads for a limited time. There’s no telling how long they’ll stay free though, so grab anything that looks appealing now, while you still can.

This post covers paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. BGR is not affiliated with any developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app anyway, you will be charged by Apple. Subscribe to our feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published, and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.
