What is the difference between "free now" and "now free" ?

For example-

  • "It is free now"

  • "It is now free"

What is the differences between these two sentences verbally ?

Some say, "now free" is used for long period and "free now" is used for limited period.

Some say "now free" for exclamatory or surprised sentences and in other hand "free now" is use in normal present condition.

  • IMO, it's just a matter of style. There isn't much difference. – user178049 Aug 30 '17 at 9:56

They're pretty much interchangeable:

The rusted bolt was frozen, so I spritzed it with some solvent. It's now free.

The rusted bolt was frozen, so I spritzed it with some solvent. It's free now.

now can move around:

Fido is living on a big farm.
He's free now to roam wherever he wants.
He's now free to roam wherever he wants.
Now he's free to roam wherever he wants.
He's free to roam wherever he wants now.
He's free to roam now wherever he wants.
