Happy Friday, BGR readers! By now you know exactly how we like to celebrate the last day of the week… and it’s the same way we celebrate every other day: by giving you a whole bunch of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free to check out. We’ve got 10 great apps for you today so be sure to grab them before the weekend arrives and these sales are over.

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.
