It’s hard to believe that November is already here and before you know it, it’ll be 2015. Of course, there are plenty of paid iPhone and iPad apps to be had for free before the year is over. We’re starting November off with a great list of eight paid iOS apps that would regularly cost $35 all together, but each and every one is a free download for a limited time — so hurry!

DON’T MISS: Apple said ‘Bendgate’ affected 9 iPhone 6 units – here’s a video of 300 bent iPhones

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 are free at the time this post is published. 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.
