What, nine paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free weren’t enough for you on Tuesday? Of course they weren’t, because there’s no such thing as “enough” when it comes to paid iOS apps on sale for free. We’ve got 10 fresh freebies lined up for you to check out on Wednesday, so be sure to dive in before these sales come to an end.

These are paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their 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, you will be charged.
