A good number of popular apps have gone free in the App Store. The free-o-rama comes just ahead of the App Store’s fifth-anniversary.
Apple is yet to make any announcement regarding the offers, and none of the apps in question give any explanation on their store pages. Since the App Store went live five years ago this week, the deals may be part of a coordinated celebration. The Verge has contacted Apple for more information on the matter.
The free apps include:
- Infinity Blade II
- Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP
- Where’s My Water?
- Tiny Wings (iPhone) (iPad)
- Traktor DJ (iPhone) (iPad)
- Day One
- Barefoot World Atlas
- How to Cook Everything
None of these apps have ever been free on the App Store to the best of our knowledge, and have sold well at relatively high prices in the past.
Grab ’em while they last folks!
(UPDATE – 7/8/13) The free apps are indeed a part of the celebration of the App Store’s 5th anniversary. We’ve update the list above, but for a complete list, visit the App Store. [DIRECT LINK]
