How has your week been so far? Hopefully things have been good for you, and like we faithfully do twice each week, we scour the Internet to look for something that might interest you in this week's edition of free apps of the week.

These usually paid apps on Google Play and Apple App Store are currently free for a limited time. Grab them on your Android or iPhone before they revert to paid status. While they're free as of publishing, offers can expire without warning due to developer-controlled pricing. The promotional period for apps on these platforms is unpredictable and can end suddenly.

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 and test them out 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.

The love of writing and all things tech have proven to be the catalyst that has kept me going in this industry for the past decade. Here are to many more years ahead, at least until Android Vanilla Pudding is released!
