7 awesome paid iPhone apps that are free for a limited time (save $42!)

Best Free iPhone Apps

Today’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps that are on sale for free has some pretty big shoes to fill after yesterday’s solid list, and there are even a few great apps from Wednesday that are still free downloads if you hurry. For Thursday though, we have seven fresh paid iOS apps that are typically worth a combined $42, but right now they’re all completely free for a limited time.

DON’T MISS: I just added wireless charging to my iPhone 6 in 10 seconds, and it cost less than $20

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.
