It’s hump day, and one of the best ways to get over the hump is to download a bunch of free apps to distract you from the fact that Friday is still two whole days away. Thankfully, we’ve managed to cobble together a list of 10 free iPhone, iPad and iPod touch apps for you to download, but you’ll have to act fast, because they’ll only be free for a limited time.
MUST SEE: PlayStation VR review
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.
