To celebrate the fifth anniversary of its App Store, Apple is giving away 10 popular apps and games.

The tech company on Monday launched a new section on the App Store that features five apps and five games for the iPhone and iPad that normally cost a few dollars but now are free.

The apps are Barefoot World Atlas, Day One, How to Cook Everything, Over and Traktor DJ. The games are Badland, Infinity Blade II, Tiny Wings, Where's My Water? and Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP.

Besides the free games and apps, the section, which is called "5 Years of the App Store," features a timeline of milestones in the App Store's history.

The App Store launched in 2008, a year after the iPhone, with 500 apps. Apple on Monday said it now includes more than 900,000 apps. 

Of the free apps and games, Infinity Blade II and Traktor DJ seem to offer some of the biggest savings. Infinity Blade II, a sword-fighting video game, normally costs $7; Traktor DJ, a DJ app, is normally available for $20.
