Whether you’re looking to manage a budget, organize a guest list for a party or measure something in your home with augmented reality technology, we’ve got you covered with today’s list of paid apps gone free. Plus, if you’re lucky, you might be able to find a few apps that are still free from yesterday’s list as well.

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.
