Apple Celebrates 5 Years with Free Apps


Apple PR:

From the 500 apps available at launch in 2008 to the more than 900,000 at your fingertips today, it’s been a remarkably prolific five years for the App Store. To celebrate, we’re giving everyone five landmark games and five groundbreaking apps for a limited time. Plus, look back at the key moments that have made the App Store the world’s most innovative destination for apps.

The free apps they are giving away are really great, and normally fairly expensive too! I recommend everyone go grab them now, because as soon as you download them once for free, you can grab them again later at any time.
