Happy Friday, Apple fans. You all watched along as Apple unveiled its next-generation MacBook Pro laptop on Thursday, and now you’re left to figure out how you can save up enough money to buy one. Well, we’ll help where we can, and we’ll start by making sure you don’t spend money on any of the paid iPhone and iPad apps listed below, which are all on sale for a limited time.

MUST SEE: These hidden iOS 10 features will change the way you use your iPhone

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.

Sonic CD


Normally $2.99.

Sonic travels to the distant shores of Never Lake for the once-a-year appearance of Little Planet – a mysterious world where past, present, and future collide through the power of the Time Stones that lie hidden within it.

In order to put an end to Dr. Eggman’s nefarious schemes, Sonic must use the power of Little Planet to travel through time; breaking Dr. Eggman’s hold over the future by destroying his machines in the past and recovering the missing Time Stones!
