Best Free iPhone Apps

We dug through more than 300 discounted iPhone and iPad apps on Wednesday morning to find the best of the bunch, and we came up with six different apps and games that are all on sale for free for a limited time. There are also still a few app sales on yesterday’s list that haven’t yet ended, so be sure to go back and check it out if you missed it.

This post covers paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. BGR is not affiliated with any app 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 anyway, you will be charged by Apple. Some apps may have additional in-app purchases. Subscribe to our RSS feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.

** User’s review on the eqplayer

Michael ***
This eq is awesome & works how an eq is supposed to.
This eq is INSERTED into the signal so it truly affects the sent signal unlike most other els which attenuate all other frequencies to make the “apparent” selected frequencies volume louder.

Kelvin ***
I love this EQ bcuz I can get my music as loud as I like with my sound set clear and with plenty of bass.
