A new week is here and we’re starting things off on the right foot with some great paid iPhone and iPad apps that are all completely free to download right now. Today’s list has eight apps total, and they would cost you a combined $45 on most days if you wanted to get them all. For a limited time, however, you can snag each and every one of them without paying a dime — but only if you hurry!

DON’T MISS: Meet the smartphone that rips off Apple and Samsung in one fell swoop

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.
