NOTE: GrowthBeat -- VentureBeat's provocative new marketing-tech event -- is next week! We've gathered the best and brightest to explore the data, apps, and science of successful marketing. Get the full scoop here, and grab your tickets while they last.
A handful of the top-rated applications and games in the iTunes App Store have become free ahead of the store’s fifth birthday.
These titles include big-name games like Infinity Blade II, Where’s My Water?, Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP, and Badland. Free non-game apps include Traktor DJ and Barefoot World Atlas.
Some of these free titles were already cheap but a few were relatively expensive. Infinity Blade II, for example, costs $6.99 regularly while Traktor DJ for iPad normally runs $19.99.
Be sure to join us to explore the future of mobile apps at our MobileBeat conference starting tomorrow. Buy your tickets now!
No official announcement has been made about the free applications and there’s no telling how long the promotion will last. So if any of these titles interests you, this is the time to download it.
We’ve contacted Apple about the development and will update this post if the company responds.
Here’s a list of apps and games that are now free:
