10 awesome paid iPhone apps that are on sale for free today

Best Free iPhone Apps

Yesterday’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free was a great one, and there are still a few limited-time freebies if you hurry back to that post and snag them. Today, however, we have our biggest list of the week. There are 10 apps in total on Thursday’s list, and each one would normally cost between $0.99 and $4.99 to buy. Right now, however, they’re all completely free — but only if you hurry!

DON’T MISS: One simple trick could free up gigabytes of space on your iPhone

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.
