Today’s list of the best paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free is a solid one, packed with 11 different apps that span all sorts of categories. And of course if 11 apps aren’t enough for you for some reason, you’ll find even more freebies in yesterday’s post that haven’t yet expired.

DON’T MISS: No one is talking about the game-changing new iPhone 7 Plus feature coming in iOS 10.1

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.
