It is Friday, so let's check out what is available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store that are available for free. Now take note that these apps normally come with a price tag, but have been made available for free for a limited time only. This article will inform you of the exclusive deals for paid apps that will not cost you a single cent! Download these apps today on your Android or iPhone!

Do take note that these apps are listed for free at the time of publishing, although we do not have a crystal ball to see when these offers will expire 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 disappear just as quickly as they were added without any prior notification.

We also want to take note that while we curate this list of free apps, we do not install them like how 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 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.
