8 awesome paid iPhone apps you can download for free right now (save $60!)

Best Free iPhone Apps

Welcome to another week of iPhone and iPad app sales, and today we’re kicking things off with a particularly awesome batch of apps. Developers constantly offer limited-time sales on their paid apps in an effort to drum up added interest, and it’s quite difficult to find and sort through all those sales to identify the best apps out there. Luckily, BGR is here to do the dirty work for you. Monday’s list includes eight nifty apps that are regularly worth a combined $60, but you can get each and every one for free if you hurry up and download them right away.

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.
