Apple Celebrates App Store’s Fifth Year with 10 Free Apps

Apple’s App Store turns five years old this week and Apple is celebrating by dropping the prices of several apps all the way to $0 for a limited time. These featured apps include the popular Over that lets you add custom captions and text to your photos as well as a number of games, like Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP and Infinity Blade II, which have never been free before.

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.

Below is the full list of what’s currently free. Click those Buy Now buttons to get them before the prices go back up!

On my birthday Apple celebrated five ( 5 )years at the App Store with ten apps, I downloaded 5 app’s and now I can only find one ( 1 ) which is Over.

This is the list:
1. Over
2. Day One ( Journal / Diary )
3. How to Cook Everything
4. Barefoot World Atlas
5. Traitor DJ for IPad

I checked and rechecked every app I have ever purchased and these are NOT on my IPad except for “OVER”…….. I was so excited to share my birthday with Apple’s celebration and thought what a great gift….. Thank You!
How can I reinstall these free APP’S on my IPad without being charged for them? Can you offer any help or assistance ? Thank You:)!
I think your offer was a wonderful thank to everyone from Apple, once again excellence at it’s best from Apple.
Congratulation on Five ( 5 ) wonderful years from Apple’s App Store….

Sincerely Yours,
Francesca Wildgoose

are buying a bra to wear along with a particular outfit for a special occasion or as general wear, it is always better to buy something
that serves the purpose. The apparel industry in Australia is doing well internationally and
the Aussie made fashion attire is now getting popular among international fashion freaks.
