As we kick off a brand new week, we’d like to help you get your smartphones rolling with a slew of apps that just might make your life better, whether it’s a new game or a productivity tool. There are certainly interesting apps that are free! That’s why we have our list of free apps of the week for iOS and Android below.
Appearing twice a week, we ensure that you have no idea what to download from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Instead, we’ve searched both app stores so we can compile a list of paid apps we think you’d be interested in. However, there’s a catch: these normally paid apps are now available for free, albeit only for a while. Discover more below!
Needless to say, you will come across apps that will interest you, but not in terms of price. This is exactly why we work hard to browse the Apple App Store and Google Play Store twice a week, looking for paid apps that are currently available for free. These are all limited-time offers, as it is not clear when developers of said apps will discontinue these offers.
There is nothing worse than a free app, except an app that is paid, useless or contains malware. That’s why we want to responsibly offer apps that have a rating of 3.5 stars or higher. This is very different from our top 5 apps of the week, as the Top 5 apps are normally pre-rated.
Tip: If you come across an interesting app listed here but don’t need it right now, we highly recommend installing it before uninstalling it. When you do this, the app will be saved to your library so you can install it later without having to pay for it, even after the promotion ends.
