This has already been quite a week for iPhone and iPad app sales, and today we have some big ones for you. We don’t cover many iOS games in these posts because there are just so many of them and they constantly see price changes. Today, however, we have two big ones to share with you along with a nifty utility.
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.
