You should have recovered from any nasty hangover from the recent New Year's Eve party by now. You whip out what you think is the best smartphone in the world, and scroll through the photos to get rid of any incriminating evidence when you were inebriated. Only then did it hit you, it is time for some new apps!

This list of app selections is published twice a week at nextpit—once on Tuesday and another on Saturday. If you are not searching for app bargains today but prefer to be in the know instead, you would do well to bookmark our page.

This list of free apps is different from our Top 5 Apps of the Week since there are no individual app reviews. However, we do our best to ensure these apps are not microtransaction hells and feature a minimum 3.5-star rating in the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

Another important point to be aware of: Many of these promotions have a limited shelf life. By the time you finish reading this article, one of the free apps may no longer be free. Please let us know and we will remove the app from the article.

Another hot tip: If you come across an exciting app but don't need it right now, download and install it anyway. This way, you have "bought" it once for free and it will be available in your app library forever—even if you delete it from your smartphone after that.
