The most appealing thing about the iTunes App Store over all its competitors is the fact that a number of pretty great apps keep going completely free from time to time, something which is rather uncommon in almost every other platform. We mentioned this earlier as well, that it helps the developers take  advantage of the sale boost to increase their app’s popularity and hopefully get better sales statistics when the price goes back to normal. However, on the flipside, for bargain hunters like us, that provides a wonderful opportunity to get great apps for the wonderful price of free. Since we’ve lately taken it upon us to share these great catches with you as well, continue past the break for our today’s pick of apps that are available to download absolutely free.

Photo Transfer WiFi ($2.99 – FREE / iPhone and iPad)
