Here's a little treat on a Monday morning. A number of premium iOS apps and games have been discounted to nothing over at the App Store, including the charming and mildly addictive Tiny Wings (and Tiny Wings HD for iPad), Traktor DJ (normally $20), Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP, as well as Infinity Blade II (usually $7). There's no official promotion to explain or list all the discounts, so we're left to guess that this could be a prelude to July 10th, when Apple will mark the fifth anniversary of the App Store. Cupertino has already started sending out promotional material to mark the occasion, listing the usual big statistics to show how far the App Store has come since 2008, so these freebies could well be a part of that. We've linked up a few of them after the break, but the list isn't exhaustive so please add more in the Comments section if you spot any others that merit the storage space. Happy hunting!

Update: Apple has officially posted its list of free downloads for the occasion, including 5 games plus 5 utility apps. Beyond than the ones listed above, iOS users can snag Badland, Where's My Water, Barefoot World Atlas, Day One (Journal / Diary), How to Cook Everything, and Over. Click here to check them all out on iTunes.

Traktor DJ for iPad and for iPhone - "The world's #1 pro DJ software brings high-impact DJing to iPad"

Infinity Blade II - "Can you unlock all the mysteries and successfully wield the power of the Infinity Blade in this timeless swordplay adventure?"

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP - "an exploratory action adventure with an emphasis on audiovisual style"

Tiny Wings and Tiny Wings HD (for iPad) - "You have always dream of flying -- but your wings are tiny."

Badland - "Award-winning atmospheric action adventure platformer"

Where's My Water - "Each level is a challenging physics-based puzzle with amazing life-like mechanics."
