Best Free iPhone Apps

The weekend is over and you’re back in your office or in school, sitting there reading BGR while you should probably be getting things done. Don’t worry, we won’t tell your boss or your professor… instead, we’ll reward you with a great list of paid iPhone and iPad apps that are on sale for free for a limited time.

As always, be sure to grab anything of interest as soon as possible — especially the versatile widgets app that’s first on our list — because these sales could end at any moment.

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.
