Looking for some fresh apps to fill up those new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus handsets you picked up over the weekend? We’ve got just what the doctor ordered. You’ll find eight different paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free in today’s list, but as always they’re only free downloads for a limited time so grab them 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 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.

Backgammon is believed to have started in Persia, eventually finding its way to Britain with the Roman conquest in the 1st century and was played by Emperor Claudius who even had his carriage equipped with a playing board! It became such a gambling mania that it was declared illegal under the Republic.
