You can still get them. New apps and games will not be "posted" in the app store until after the freeze.

The freeze is for developers, the won't be able to submit updates or price changes etc. Consumers can still buy stuff.

I hear if you're downloading a game when the freeze occurs, your iPhone becomes encased in solid ice. Be careful!
