We recently named this gem one of our Top Picks with 4.5 stars and it's a prime example of why all families need to invest in an iPad. It features wonderful illustrations, inventive interactive elements and a good story about friendship and not being afraid to go to the doctor. A great app, especially for free, that works on the iPad and iPhone.
** Only the app's developer can control when an app is free or not. All apps that we post as Good Free Apps of the Day are verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise. **

Every day we pick what we affectionately call the Good Free App of the Day, an app that we have downloaded, tested and certified: It can't have a ton of ads or just a little content with a ton of in-app purchases.
It also has to be good.
We then present them to you to read, download, and share and, based on which ones got the most hits, here are your Top 100 Favorite Free Apps!
We've done our best to only include apps that are permanently free, but sometimes developers do change their minds so please leave a comment if you find an app that's no longer free.
