Best Free iPhone Apps

Now that well over 10 million people own Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones, it’s time to start filling them with great new apps. It’s easy to spend a fortune on apps, of course, so BGR does our best to help you save money by letting you know when nifty paid iPhone and iPad apps go on sale for free. Today, we have 6 solid apps worth a combined $57, but they’re all available as free downloads if you hurry.

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.
