Happy unbirthday everyone, Apple's giving top apps away for free

App Store now five years young

As the App Store approaches its fifth birthday, Apple has deigned to give its faithful hoardes a little unbirthday treat: some free apps.

Infinity Blade II, the beautiful Badland, Where's My Water?, Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP and the terribly addictive Tiny Wings are among the game-flavoured bargains, with Traktor DJ, diary-keeping Day One, photo-text-overlay app Over and kid-friendly atlas app Barefoot Atlas among the non-game offerings.

Traktor DJ for iPad is usually $20. So, y'know, you should download that even if you have no intention of ever using it.
