If you enjoyed yesterday’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free — and we know you did — then we’ve got great news: there’s a fresh new list ready and waiting for you today. We’ve rounded up the nine best freebies for you to check out on Tuesday, so be sure to grab them 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.
