Last week was a fantastic one for paid iPhone and iPad apps that were dropped to free on sale for a limited time, and this week is already shaping up to be even better. To start things off, we have found eight awesome paid iOS apps that would normally cost a combined $55, but each and every one of them is completely free if you hurry.
DON’T MISS: Massive 47-page ad shows all of Best Buy’s crazy Black Friday deals
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 “free,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.

Bubble Browser for Evernote
◆◆◆ Evernote Devcup DESIGN Category Winner ◆◆◆
◆◆◆ Top 10 Productivity app! ◆◆◆
Bubble Browser is a clean, visual (and fun!) way to explore your Evernote memories.
We all know that information is irrelevant without the context. Our experiments with new ways of discovering information brought us to the idea of visual, near-organic browsing experience.
By presenting your data in an aesthetic, more natural and approachable way, Bubble Browser addresses a challenge of dealing with constantly increasing amounts of information.
Tags, notebooks and dates are presented as colorful bubbles showing what’s most important in every given context. You can see how often particular tag was used at a glance and easily navigate back through the history of your notes. In short – the bigger the bubble is, the more stuff is inside.
“While classic notes exploration is like looking into the grocery store through a mail slot to see what you need, Bubble Browser brings you right into the shopping mall to see what’s on the shelf.” commented one of the app’s early adopters.
Bubble Browser for iPad is a completely new app based on our experience gained from our work on the Mac version.

Defend the skies of the newly built offshore banking communities, stopping the most daring money heists imaginable, as you pilot one of 5 upgradeable HD modern aircraft (including highly detailed Jets and for the first time in HD: Attack Helicopters). Next generation of cinematic arcade-style game play awaits you during your 5+ hour journey through 20 action-packed missions, amidst the destructible HD high-rise city environments. Featuring:
• New HD 3D Physics-powered Engine with completely redefined Modern Aerial Combat arcade experience in full HD. With brand-new HD sights, sounds and non-stop action that will take your breath away!
• Enjoy Simple and Intuitive Controls: tilt your iOS device left/right to steer your aircraft around city obstacles while skillfully avoiding enemy missiles.

• RPG Style Progression System allows you to FREELY acquire, pilot and level-up 5 unique Jets and Helicopters while unlocking 30 different types of Afterburner and Weapon upgrades.

Holding the left “Afterburner” button will allow you to avoid enemy missiles as well as steer around destructible city hazards. Remember that the game’s Dynamic On-Screen Tutorial System will always guide you on the right course of action, while prolonged use of the Weapons/Afterburner will cause a temporary overload.
