It has become a tradition where every single week, NextPit will do the hard work of curating a decent selection of Android and iOS applications and games that normally require you to pay for them, but they are temporarily free - on both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
This list is updated each week, so you might want to bookmark our site just in case you stumble upon an app that you have long wanted to purchase, but never got around to doing so because of the price. Do bear in mind that there is the possibility of you reading this article one day after its publication, and some applications may no longer be free. At the time of writing this article, all of the applications that I have listed are available for free for Android and iOS. If you know of any apps that are currently free and worth mentioning, please let me know in the comments.

In any case, we update this article every week, and this is normally done on a Thursday or Friday. If you have discovered a bug, or an application is no longer free, or you simply have a tip that you would like to share with us? You can do so by writing me a message or leaving a comment.
And if you don't find what you're looking for in this list, maybe you'll have better luck with our weekly list of the 5 Android and iOS apps of the week, which is published every Saturday.
