11 paid iPhone apps on sale for free today

Best Free iPhone Apps

Our regular column on paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free continues to be some of the most popular content we publish each day. Why? Because if there’s one thing people love more than new iOS apps, it’s new premium iOS apps they don’t have to pay for. Today’s post includes 11 different apps — be sure to check them all out before these sales end.

FYI: There are also still a few paid apps on sale for free in yesterday’s post.

DON’T MISS: New app wants to make it so you never have to deal with customer service – and it’s free

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.
