iOS is a fantastic platform for apps and games. Sure, there's a lot of crap, but iOS has also given birth to some of the most innovative titles in mobile gaming. You may not believe that statement, but now you have a chance to try these games out for yourself for free this week.
Kotaku reports that many of the best apps and games for iOS are going free in celebration of Apple's App Store turning five on July 10. There's a lot of good stuff here, and you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't pick up at least a few of these games for free during the sale.
Here's everything that's on sale so far, but more apps and games will probably go free throughout the rest of the week. Oh, and before you ask, the iPad versions of the following apps are free as well:
Sword & Sworcery
Infinity Blade 2
Where's My Water
The Idiot Test 3
War of Reproduction
Day One Journal
Barefoot World Atlas
How to cook everything
Map My Ride +
Now, maybe you feel that you must be more selective even if everything above is free. Might I suggest then that you at least download Badland, Sword & Sworcery and Infinity Blade 2 while they're free. Those three games are some of the best that iOS has to offer, and you won't be disappointed by the experience.
As I said above, more games will be going on sale in the coming days as the App Store doesn't actually turn five until Wednesday. The above games just happened to jump the gun a little bit, but that's definitely not a bad thing.
