Friday is finally here, which means you have one more roundup of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free to enjoy before you slide away into the weekend. We’ve got seven solid apps for you to check out today, including Minecraft: Story Mode – S2 and an unlimited VPN app that protects your privacy and typically costs $7. They’re all laid out below, so take a look through the list soon before these sales end.

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.

Minecraft: Story Mode – S2

Normally $4.99.

Now that Jesse and the gang have vanquished the Wither Storm, saved the world, and become totally super famous heroes, life has gotten a bit more…complicated. With more responsibilities and less time for adventure, old friendships have started to fade — at least until Jesse’s hand gets stuck in a creepy gauntlet that belongs to an ancient underwater temple. Together with old pals and new comrades alike, Jesse embarks on a brand new journey filled with tough choices, good times, and at least one temperamental llama.

Includes Episode 1 of a 5 part series in this brand new season from the award-winning studio, Telltale Games.

***PLEASE NOTE: NOT RECOMMENDED FOR DEVICES BELOW iPhone 5S and iPad Air 2. The full list of recommended minimum devices for the best gameplay experience is as follows – iPhone 5S and up, iPad Mini 4 and up, iPad Air 2 and up, and iPad Pro – also requires iOS 10.0 and up.***
