9 paid iPhone and iPad apps that are free downloads for a limited time

Best Free iPhone Apps

Today’s lists of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free is a particularly good one, which is great because yesterday’s post is a tough act to follow. There were some really nifty paid iOS apps on sale for free on Wednesday — and some of them are still free downloads if you hurry — but we would go as far as to say that today’s list is even better.

Of course, you’d better hurry if you want to make sure you don’t miss out on any of these great sales.

DON’T MISS: Here it comes: Get ready for the death of unlimited mobile data plans

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.
