No Cyber Monday is complete without a handful of paid iPhone and iPad apps that are available as free downloads for a limited time. We’ve got a terrific batch in store for you today, including several premium apps that have never been made available for free before. Check them all out below.
DON’T MISS: The 10 best Cyber Monday sales of 2016
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.

SUZANNE LABARRE / Fast co design
We’re starting to suspect the iPad isn’t just a device, but a wand that turns mere mortals into superhuman renaissance men. Case in point: Triangle Draw, an iPad app by Denmark’s Simon Strandgaard that allows regular joes to create computer graphics that could pass for the stuff of professionals.
JORDAN MARKOWSKI / Trend Hunter
Triangle Draw is a fascinating iPad app that puts the capacity to create awesome logos in the hands of even the most unskilled of users.
Although the concept behind the app may seem simple, the room for creation is extensive and vast. Using acute or obtuse angles, Triangle Draw allows you to create retro gaming-inspired logos that have a minimalist, almost binary aesthetic. When it comes to creating something that fits in that very specific look, there is no app that’s as user-friendly or dynamic as Triangle Draw.

Triangle Draw App can be of great help in creating stunning minimalist graphics.

Triangle Draw is a small drawing program where you can only draw with triangles. It sounds weird at first, but is actually really smart. It makes you thus no landscape paintings – rather stylized and abstract works. Triangle Draw are particularly good for sketching logos; Very quickly you turn up something that could adorn letterhead from any bank or airline. Basic facilities like fill, shuffle and mirror are also available for unexpected effects.

Somewhere out there in client land a marketing manager is playing with it on their iPad and wondering why on earth they would commission a designer to do what they can now do themselves.
