It’s that time again, and even with CES going on in the background and new hardware being announced every five minutes, we just don’t want you to miss out on any kind of bargain. Here we have quite a few iOS apps that should cost money but now do not, and some of them used to cost as much as $5.

So what are you waiting for? Read on and download.

Next – Numbers ($1.99 – FREE / iPhone and iPad)

Next

A seemingly simple brain-game, Next has you picking sequential numbers out of a random collection and layout of those same numbers. Sounds simple, doesn’t it?

Line Runner 2 ($1.99 – FREE / iPhone and iPad)

Line Runner 2

Line Runner was a classic. Line Runner 2 is just as good, and it’s free. Fans of the runner genre really should have this in their arsenal if they don’t already.

Doodle: easy scheduling ($2.99 – FREE / iPhone and iPad)

Doodle

The best service out there when it comes to scheduling anything amongst a group of people, the official Doodle app is free and while it’s not much to look at, can be a lifesaver if you need to get people lined up for meetings.

PDF Max S for Dropbox ($4.99 – FREE / iPhone and iPad)

PDF Max

Because one just can’t have enough apps that tie into Dropbox and make it possible to read PDFs. Full of more features than anyone really should need, this has to be worth having on your phone or tablet just in case you need it one day.

Form Expert ($3.99 – FREE / iPhone and iPad)

Form Expert

Need to fill in PDF forms on your iPad or iPhone? Form Expert is for you, especially now that it’s free!

Slated ($4.99 – FREE / iPhone and iPad)

Slated

A third-party keyboard that can translate text into different languages as you type it? If that sounds awesome, it’s probably because it is. Really, really awesome.

MiniatureCam – TiltShift Generator HD ($2.99 – FREE / iPad)

MiniatureCam

Make gorgeous tilt-shift videos and photos for free. It’s iPad-only, but that bigger screen suits the job anyway!

Makanim – Multi-Touch Generative Art ($2.99 – FREE / iPhone and iPad)

Makanim

Create stunning animations just by using multi-touch. We admit that we don’t really have the creative streak needed to make the best of it, but someone somewhere will love Makanim.

All of the above listed apps are available directly to download from the App Store.

Note: These apps are available for free for a limited time only. Download them as soon as possible since such deals don’t ordinarily last for more than 24 hours after posting.
