Free Android and iOS Apps of the week
It is the start of a new work week. Do you want to get new apps on your smartphone to kick things off in a fresh way? This is the first 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 potentially huge savings and download these apps today on your Android or iPhone!
Do bear in mind that these apps are free at the time of publication, but we have no say in how long they will be free so 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 tip: 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.
