The week is almost over, but that hardly means we’re slowing down when it comes to sharing paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. In fact, Thursday’s list is our biggest of the week, with 10 solid apps normally worth a combined $30. If you hurry up, however, you can snag them all for free.

As an added bonus, you’ll also find a few paid iOS apps that are still on sale for free in yesterday’s post.

DON’T MISS: Waze for iPhone just got a brilliant new feature Google Maps can’t touch

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.
