Another week has come and gone, but it’s not over just yet. Before you pack things in and get ready to enjoy your weekend, we have one last list of nifty paid iPhone and iPad apps that are currently on sale for free. Yesterday’s list was easily one of the best ones this week, and several of the apps on that list can still be downloaded for free if you hurry.

Of course today, we have eight more paid apps that can be downloaded for free right now.

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.
