This has been a terrific week for thrifty app shoppers looking to save money on some awesome paid apps. Today, we have four more solid offerings to share, but you’d better hurry because these sales could end at any time.

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.
