We hope you enjoyed the long weekend, and we hope that you also found some time to honor all the brave men and women who have given their lives protecting our country. Now that everyone is back to the grindstone, we’re going to help ease you back into the work week with a list of 12 paid iPhone and iPad apps that are on sale for free right now. 12 is a whole lot of apps but if that’s not enough for some reason, you’ll find several more freebies in yesterday’s post.

DON’T MISS: Is this why the iPhone 7 is so boring?

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.

The Bites app lets you manage your sounds in the app and with the ‘More Bites’ section, users are able to choose to download additional sounds to their personal libraries.

Bites is set to add multiple new sounds to the platform for each update. Users can expect to see loads of new sounds that can further add to their conversations and experiences.

We have packed in over 200 free sounds for users to share.

A request feature enables users to communicate with the team at Bites to get new sound Bites to the app on demand.

The app size is no greater than 50 megabytes so you won’t need to worry about space on your device.

In app purchases for additional sound effects are charged to your iTunes account.
