9 paid iPhone apps on sale for free today

Updated 4 years ago
Best Free iPhone Apps

CES 2016 might be the talk of the town today, but not everyone wants all of their tech news occupied by a bunch of nifty gadgets that might never actually be released. For a brief break from all that action, perhaps you’d like to enjoy a list of nine paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free right now. There are some great options in today’s list, and you’ll also find a few more freebies in yesterday’s post if you jump back to that one.

MUST SEE: Under Armour showed me the future of fitness tech

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.
