Welcome back to NextPit's weekly selection of good deals for mobile apps and games for iOS and Android that are normally paid—but are temporarily free on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
NextPit updates this list of free apps every week at least twice—on Tuesday and Friday. Between the publication and the moment you read this article, it is possible that some applications have become paid again. Google Play Store promos on apps are fairly easy to predict, but it's more complicated with App Store promos since Apple doesn't specify how long the discount is valid. So better be quick!
- Follow our complete guide to finding free apps for Android and iOS
Quick tip: If you see an interesting app in this list, but can't really use it yet: Install the app anyway, then delete it from your device. This way, the app will become part of your app library and you can install it again for free whenever you need it. It's a good way not to miss a short-lived promotion.
