Apple’s App Store celebrates its 5th anniversary on the 10th of July. To mark this joyous occasion, several top-selling apps dropped their price tag.

People keeping track of these things will remember that Apple’s App Store was rolled out to the public on the 10th of July, 2008. This means that the App Store’s 5th anniversary is coming up in a couple of days. The exciting thing is that multiple highly regarded, top-selling apps for iPhone and iPad have gone free in honor of the App Store’s 5th anniversary.


Here are the app’s that are celebrating the App Store’s 5th anniversary by dropping their price tag:

Infinity Blade II – the sequel for the acclaimed Infinity Blade action role-playing video game.

Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP – an exploratory action adventure with an emphasis on audiovisual style.

Where's My Water? – help Swampy the alligator take a shower by clearing a path for the water.

Badland – the award-winning atmospheric sidescrolling action adventure platformer that takes place in a forest full of various inhabitants, trees and flowers.

Tiny Wings – you can’t fly, but you can use the hills to jump as far as possible.

Traktor DJ – pro DJ software you can use to create amazing mixes.

Day One – a journal app that you can use to store memories, ideas, photos, and more.

Over – add text and artwork to your photos; then sare them on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Instagram.

Barefoot World Atlas – interactive 3D globe that invites children to explore the regions and countries of the world.

This is your chance to get your hands on some very nice, rather expensive apps. The pro DJ app Traktor DJ for example is normally priced at $19.99. Now it is free! And the best thing is that the titles listed above are most likely only the beginning of the App Store's birthday celebrations.

As mentioned above, the App Store opened in July, 2008. At the time the App Store was home to some 500 apps. Things have changed considerably since them. The App Store now offers more than 850,000 apps to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users in 155 countries around the world, with more than 350,000 native iPad apps available. All these apps are grouped in 23 categories.

UPDATE July 9th: How to Cook Everything is also free.
