Now that the week is coming to an end, we’re looking forward to putting our feet up, relaxing, and checking out some apps on our phones. After all, our phones do much more than just keep us connected: they’re also a mobile entertainment device and a productivity tool. Are there any interesting apps that are free? Sure, there are! That’s why we have our list of free apps of the week for iOS and Android below.
Appearing twice a week, we make sure you don’t get lost in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store looking for free apps. Instead, we’ve scoured both app stores to find a curated highlight list of paid apps we think you’d be interested in. However, there’s a catch: these apps are only available for free for a while. Discover more below!
Naturally, you will come across apps that you are interested in, but don’t want to spend money on. That’s why we do what we do: 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 and we don’t know when the developers will discontinue these offers.
After all, no one likes installing malware or useless apps. That’s why we feel responsible to only offer apps with a rating of 3.5 stars or higher. This will be different from our top 5 apps of the week as we actually rate the apps in that list.
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.
