It’s Christmas! Look, it’s OK if your presents didn’t live up to your expectations this year. Your family will try harder next year. In the meantime, our gift to you is this great list of 11 paid iPhone and iPad 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.
