Yesterday’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps that were on sale for free was one of our best of the week, but we’re going to outdo ourselves with Thursday’s list. Not only have we found some really great paid iOS apps that are currently on sale for free, we’ve managed to dig up 10 of them today, making this our biggest list of the week.

If you want even more paid apps for free, head back to yesterday’s post, where there are a few apps that are still on sale.

DON’T MISS: The little red dot that saved me from my 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.

Zombies, Run!

Normally $3.99.

Get ready for the run of your life. Join 1,000,000+ runners on an epic adventure!

You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first steps outside. You’ve barely covered 100 yards when you hear them. They must be close. You can hear every guttural breath, every rattling groan – they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: Run!

Zombies, Run! is an ultra-immersive running game and audio adventure, co-created with award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman. Every run becomes a mission where you’re the hero, with our immersive audio drama putting you at the centre of your very own zombie adventure story. While you run to the perfect mix of heart-pumping audio drama and pulse-pounding songs from your own playlist, you’ll collect supplies to grow your base back home.

BBC NEWS – “The only way to save yourself is to run for real.”
WIRED – “In the style of Runkeeper, with an exciting undead twist.”
LIFEHACKER – “A really cool way to get outside and exercise.”
CNN – “Turns exercise into a game – a terrifying, terrifying game.”
TIME – “Takes all the fun of a zombie game and funnels it into a fitness app.”

“Evaded all zombie mobs :-) One of my best sprints ever; this app works!”
“This game will make you sweat. Perfect junction between game design and run tracker.”
“Just tried @zombiesrungame and for the first time in my life I feel truly alive.”

Zombies, Run! works anywhere and at any speed. You can jog in a park, run along a beach, or walk along a trail. It even works on treadmills!

Hundreds of lives are counting on you. You’ve got to rebuild your base from a few shivering survivors into a fortified beacon of civilization by collecting critical supplies and avoiding roving zombie hordes. Can you save them and learn the truth about the zombie apocalypse?

You become the hero in an epic story of humanity’s struggle for survival where your running *really* matters, and there’s a deeper mystery to be uncovered as well. Play the first four missions for free and unlock one extra mission every week.

Unlock all 200+ story missions immediately for unlimited play, plus Interval Training and Airdrop Mode. Pro is available for $2.99/month or $19.99/year. Your subscription will not automatically renew. (Existing paid players will have access to a special discounted membership rate, plus free access to all game modes and S1-3 missions).

Choose your own custom playlists before you start running: the story unfolds in between your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages and voice recordings.

Saving the world not exciting enough? Activate Chases to kick things up a notch. When you hear zombies on your six, it’s time to speed up before they get too close. Can you escape every mob, or will you have to drop some of your hard-earned supplies to distract them? There’s only one way to find out.

View detailed graphs and stats for your entire running and game progress — and check out which songs you play the most while escaping zombies!

Every time you run, you’ll automatically collect vital supplies like medicine, batteries and food. Once you’re home, you can use them to build your very own post-apocalypse community. Do you strengthen your defences against the zombies, or build a new farm? Share the results with your friends and find out who can make the brightest future for humanity.

Register with our free ZombieLink service to view and share your runs online, complete with maps and full run history!

++ User Reviews ++

+ Perfect – Just the, to-do list, app I was looking for. My schedule was
always so jumbled before I started using this great app, and the tape and priority is cool addition. Reminds me of sticky notes I would be using in
real life. Definite download for anyone with a hectic schedule,
and forgetful people.

+ Just right – They have come up with a very practical app here. Not too much not too little. I love the fact that I can voice record my todo list as I seem to remember things mostly when I’m driving but forget those things by the time I get to destination. Highly recommend it.

+ Reason I got a smart phone – Awesome I was waiting for something like this for a while! Exactly what I needed to remind me what to do. No more post it’s for me

+ Most todo list miss the point of simplicity. This app is easy to put tasks in quick. The recording option is good as well. It’s like the app orchestrate but a more simple clean UI.

+ Excellent app for making quick notes (written & spoken) on the fly. It’s made it to my home screen. I use it to collect notes & ideas, then decide what to to with them later – one for the diary, another for Evernote (also v. good) etc
