What, you thought we were done after yesterday’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free? Of course not. We showed you 10 solid premium apps that were on sale on Wednesday, and some of them are still free downloads today as well. Thursday’s list has 11 fresh apps though, and you’ll find them all laid out below.

UP NEXT: I really want to, but I’ll never ditch my iPhone for the Galaxy S7

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.

Perfect functionality by My nickname is Yochi
I use it mostly for Spotify, which I play through my stereo connected to my computer. Sometimes my computer volume is set low, so that supersedes and limits any Spotify volume adjustments. This remote app lets me raise volume (and launch Spotify if it wasn’t running!) from anywhere in my house. Perfect!

Fantastic with a Mac, could be upgraded by Ozzkid5
Dudes, this app works great and even allows smooth remote trackpad movements, while doing well with single, double, and two-fingered taps. Hasn’t crashed yet. Could be better if Siri (or equivalent) voice recognition typed words into things, or if there was a keyboard

Works fine! by Mrs. Mary Francis
I got this just for volume control and it does that just fine. The best part is that it seems to stay linked to my Mac even in the background. Wonder if that effects my iPad’s battery life? We’ll see I guess! I would definitely like a larger volume control slider – like, the full width of the interface maybe? That would give me finer control.

Awesome app by Sheths2001
Best for Mac users.

The Money app is a simple iPhone app that helps you to keep your daily expense and or income tracked. The whole app contains only one single view and you can manage your personal finance with tap and swipe gestures. In this main view it shows sum of your expense and income, as long as a progress bar to indicate the budget status of current month.

The Money app supports not only categories just like other similar apps do, it also allows you to set one or multiple customized tags for each record of expense or income. By swiping left or right on the list in the main view, the app gives you statistic for both tags and categories of the month.

Additionally, you can view all records in a specific category or tag. And in most cases you can easily see and set budget for months, categories or tags with a single tap on the little progress bar like rectangle between “Income” and “Expense”.

Money also supports setting customized accounts to keep track of your balances. Simply by pulling down the view all your account balances show up.

One more hint:
Swipe on the month title to navigate between months.
