Update: List of free apps below.
Apple’s App Store is celebrating its 5th anniversary and that translates to free apps and games for you! A lot of popular apps for the iPhone and iPad have gone free today and you don’t want to miss out because some of them have never been free before. You’ll be able to snatch up games like Infinity Blade II, Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP, Where’s My Water?, Badland and Tiny Wings. Apps that are currently being offered for free include: the photo-annotating app Over, Traktor DJ, Day One, How to Cook Everything and Barefoot World Atlas. Many of these free options had some high price tags before like Traktor DJ for iPad normally goes for $19.99!
CEO Max Whitby of Touch Press who makes Barefoot World Atlas, told ABC News that the app will remain free all week to help “celebrate five years of the App Store”. He also indicated that the companies who are making their apps free for this were not being compensated by Apple. According to him, “The loss of one week’s paid sales is far outweighed by the wider gain in awareness.” If you haven’t already, make your way to the App Store and get loads of free games and apps for this week only!
