We started the week off properly with a great list of paid iPhone and iPad apps that were on sale for free for a limited time. In fact, if you hurry you can still grab a few of them without paying a single cent. Today is a new day, though, and we have a fresh list for you with seven paid iOS apps that are all currently on sale for free.

DON’T MISS: 5 secret things you didn’t know your iPhone could do

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.
