On the lookout for some nifty new apps to try on your iPhone or iPad? We’ve got you covered… and you won’t need to spend a dime if you hurry. We sifted through hundreds of iOS apps on Friday morning to find the best of the bunch that are on sale for free. There’s no telling when these deals might end though, so definitely get in on the action while you still can.
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 features that require in-app purchases. Subscribe to our RSS feed or use that feed to create an email alert so you’ll be notified as soon as these posts are published and avoid missing any sales.
