6 awesome paid iPhone apps you can download for free ($20 value!)

Best Free iPhone Apps

People love it when the opportunity to save some money arises, and BGR does our best to comb through all of the app sales out there and present readers with the best options in the App Store. After all, with more than 1.2 million iOS apps currently on the virtual shelves of Apple’s on-device software portal, you need all the help you can get. Today we have a great batch of six paid apps worth a combined $20 that can all be had for free right now… but only if you act fast, because these sales could end at any time.

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 are free at the time this post is published. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “free,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.

Notifyr is easily one of our favorite iOS apps right now, and it’s a must-have for every iPhone owner who also has a Mac. Unfortunately for the developer, it will also be completely obsolete once OS X Yosemite is released this fall.

Notifyr shows all your incoming notifications from your iPhone on your Mac.

With Notifyr, you’ll never miss a notification again: you can keep your phone in your pocket and still know what’s going on. You can read your incoming WhatsApp messages, see who’s following you on Instagram or read any of the other kind of notifications from any app on your iPhone. It’s also possible to mute notifications from any app you like.

Once paired, you’ll never need to open the app on your phone again. When the connection gets lost, Notifyr will automatically reconnect to your phone once it becomes available again.

Because Notifyr uses Bluetooth Low Energy, you can keep using Notifyr all day without it draining your battery.

Notifyr is typically $3.99 but it’s free right now, as it has been every other day for the past week (today is the last day).
