Why pay for something when you can get it for free? Where apps are concerned, there are numerous apps on the iOS and Android platforms. The better ones tend to come with a price tag, but occasionally, developers do become generous and offer their paid apps for free.

Unfortunately, we do not know when these temporarily free apps will end up as paid again. Having said that, if you come across an app that you think you will enjoy, we highly recommend you install it first before it reverts to being paid. This list is published twice-weekly without any repeating apps.

While we do our best to make sure these apps are not privacy traps or scams, some of them might feature more ads than what you would normally experience apart from an unusual amount of in-app purchases. We do not review the apps, but ensure they carry a minimum rating of 3.5 stars. It is different from our Top 5 Apps of the Week article, which is published once each week.

Tip: If you think there is an app you would like to use in the future but do not need it already, you can download and install it first before uninstalling it. Said app will be considered as "purchased" and available in your app library forever.

  • Memorize: Learn Russian Words ($6.99): Russia might play a more prominent role on the world stage now after the recent elections, so why not learn some basic words?

  • BodyNav ($0.99): A body-based extended reality navigation game that really works on getting you immersed.
  • My City: Grandparents Home ($3.99): Spend time with your virtual grandparents, and hopefully, this will help your little ones do the same with their physical grandparents.
  • Elite Hero ($1.99): A side-scrolling action game that reminds me of Contra, except you get to indulge in cute graphics.

Before you download any of the mentioned apps, we recommend you review the app's details on the Play Store or App Store. This is important because some of these free apps may have their own unique features or drawbacks.

In-App purchases and ads: Don't be surprised!

Be cautious with both free and paid apps, as they may disguise in-app purchases and advertisements. This is particularly important when downloading games for children. To prevent any unexpected issues, please consider the following advice:

App permissions: Read the fine print!

Some applications employ a subtle strategy to generate profits by gathering and trading your personal data. To ensure your personal data's safety, it is advisable to grant only the necessary permissions for applications to operate. For instance, an alarm clock application does not require camera functionality or access to your contacts. Similarly, a flashlight app does not need access to your location.

Hopefully, these few tips can help you enjoy these Android and iOS free app downloads.
