Best Free iPhone Apps

Cyber Week sales are cool and all, but stick with us and we’ll load you up on paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free all year long. Today’s list features eight great apps you’ll definitely want to check out, and there are also a few more premium apps that are still on sale in yesterday’s post.

DON’T MISS: The 15 best HDTV deals still available for Cyber Week

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.

Swipe Dial

In-app purchase for “Unlimited Contacts” normally $1.99, now free. “SMS + Facetime” normally $1.99, now $0.99.

Make your iPhone a better phone with the quickest way to make a phone call!

Swipe Dial is the best speed dial widget on the App Store.

With Today widgets, your favorite contacts are now just a swipe away via the Today screen.

Make a phone call without having to go to the Home screen first and looking for your phone icon.

Once you have your favorite contacts set up, it’s as easy as 1 2 3:
1) Swipe down to access the Today screen
2) Tap the contact you want to call
3) Tap to start the call

With Swipe Dial:
• Easily identify which picture to tap – use a different image for your contact’s different phone numbers.
• Don’t be limited by your Address Book – use different labels or nicknames as you want

With this free app, you can set up to three contacts. An upgrade unlocks additional contacts – as many contacts as the Today widget can accommodate – and SMS and FaceTime features.
