Best Free iPhone Apps

If you buy through a BGR link, we may earn an affiliate commission, helping support our expert product labs.

We’re starting off the week strong with a great list of paid iPhone and iPad apps that are currently on sale for free. Today’s list includes eight apps in all, and they would normally cost you $44 all together to buy them. For a limited time, however, they’re all completely free. As always, these deals could end at any time so be sure to hurry if you see something you like.

DON’T MISS: Why Samsung fell

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.
