As we draw closer to Google's I/O 2023, you might want to perform an app audit on your smartphone. Are there apps that you no longer need, or are there some apps that you might want but do not want to pay for them? Perhaps there is something that will interest you in this week's edition of free apps of the week. These are normally paid apps on the Google Play and Apple App Store, but right now, they are available for free for a limited time only. Take advantage of these deals on your Android or iPhone before they become paid again.

These apps are free at the time of publishing, but these listed offers may expire without any prior notice, as developers are the ones who control pricing. You might find them with a price tag later, as app promotions on Google Play Store and Apple App Store have no set timeframe and can end abruptly.

We also want to note that while we do look through this list of free apps and do not offer anything that comes with low ratings, we did 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.

Tip: If you find an interesting app on our list but don't need it now, install and then delete it. This saves it to your app library, allowing you to install it later for free, even after the promotion ends.
