Best Free iPhone Apps

We put lists of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free together every day, but today’s list is special for a few reasons. First, it includes a number of high-profile apps that rarely go free — including one that leaps off your iPhone 6 into the physical world and lets you take hands-free 360-degree panoramic photos and videos. And with 10 paid iOS apps on sale for free, this is also our biggest list of the week, so you have plenty of great apps to choose from.

Looking for even more paid apps on sale for free? You’ll find a few more terrific options that are still free in yesterday’s post.

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.
