7 paid iPhone apps that are free to download today

Best Free iPhone Apps

Welcome to our last roundup of the week featuring paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. We’ve got seven freebies for you to check out today, and that’s in addition to a few from yesterday’s post that can still be downloaded for free if you hurry.

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.
