Top iOS apps and games go free ahead of App Stores fifth anniversary | The Verge

A host of highly regarded apps for iPhone and iPad have gone free today in what could be a major celebration to mark five years since Apple launched the App Store. So far, games such as Infinity Blade II, Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP, Wheres My Water?, Badland and Tiny Wings iPhone / iPad are all on offer for nothing, alongside apps such as the beautiful photo-annotating app Over, Traktor DJ iPhone / iPad, Day One, Over, How to Cook Everything, and Barefoot World Atlas.

None of these apps have ever been free on the App Store before, and many have commanded relatively high prices until now. In the case of Traktor DJ for iPad, the app normally sells for $19.99, and comes recommended by The Verges Nilay Patel and Trent Wolbe.Apple is yet to make any announcement regarding the offers, and none of the apps in question give any explanation on their store pages.

Since the App Store went live five years ago this week, the deals may be part of a coordinated celebration. The Verge has contacted Apple for more information on the matter.
