Best Free iPhone Apps

If you buy through a BGR link, we may earn an affiliate commission, helping support our expert product labs.

We were too busy on Wednesday to round up the best paid iPhone and iPad apps that were on sale for free, so we spent some extra time on Thursday to pick out the cream of the crop. You’ll find 10 premium apps in today’s list and they’ve all been made available to download for free by their developers. These sales will only last for a short while though, so take advantage 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 these apps will remain free. The 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.
