Best Free iPhone Apps

Yesterday’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free was a great one, and there are still a few premium apps in there that you can download for free if you hurry. But today, of course, we have a fresh list for you that includes eight more paid iOS apps on sale for 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.
