Free Android and iOS Apps of the week
As we head enter yet another weekend, how about kicking things off with some fresh new software on your smartphone? This is the second of our weekly roundup of free apps on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Here, you will be able to find exclusive deals for paid apps that are now available for free for a limited time only. Don't miss out on huge savings and download these apps today on your Android or iPhone!
Please bear in mind that these apps are free at the time of publication, but they might end up as paid status by the time you read this article or try to download them. This is rather unfortunate because there is no set timeframe for app promotions on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, and deals can be removed just as quickly as they were added.
We also want to note that while we curate this list of free apps, we do not test them out as we do with our Top 5 Apps of the Week. Therefore, we recommend that you exercise caution and conduct your own research before downloading any of these apps, as some may contain in-app purchases or hidden costs.

Here's a helpful recommendation: If you come across an app or game on our list that piques your interest but you don't need it right now, consider installing it and then deleting it from your device. This will save it to your app library, allowing you to install it again in the future when you need it. It's a great way to take full advantage of short-lived promotions.
