Summer has arrived, as has the insufferable heat. One great (and healthy) way to beat the heat is to make smoothies, which is why we’ve included a smoothie recipe app on our list of paid apps gone free today. But that’s not all, so be sure to check out all of the best apps that are free for a limited time below.

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 — 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.

Normally $2.99.

Let your kid be a doctor for one day! Examine a patient, make up action verbs, and perform the operations.

From the team at Tiggly – the creators of the beloved award winning Tiggly Chef and many other apps.

– Build more than 200 verbs!

– Check your patinas throat with a tongue depressor, measure her temperature with a thermometer, dress your other patient’s broken rib with a bandage, and many many more fun and surprising operations
– You will have three patients each with unique problems every time they visit you!

– You have a patient who is obsessed with the magazines in your office.
