Free App Friday: All Time Classics
All of this week’s free apps are based on classic games, and all are rated 4/5 stars or better.
Remember that free apps may include in-app purchase (IAP) options or be ad-supported, but given that these apps have been given very high ratings by MANY consumers, where IAP links or ads are present they must be pretty unobtrusive. Descriptions below are from the apps’ product pages.
