Begin your week with a collection of paid apps which are now available for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Do you know there are developers who offer their paid apps for free for a limited time only? The early bird gets the worm, so act quickly because these free offers will not be around forever.

We always suggest apps and games that prioritize your privacy and won't burn a hole in your pocket. However, unlike our Top 5 Apps of the Week selection, we have not reviewed these apps individually. Therefore, some listed apps may contain ads and offer in-app purchases.

Tip: If you come across an app that you'd like to have but don't need right now, download and install it first. It would be considered as "bought" and it will be available in your app library forever—even if you uninstall it from your smartphone right after.

Android apps and games that are free for a limited time

Android apps for productivity and lifestyle

  • Luci - Dream Journal Recorder ($0.99): Want to remember your dreams? Record them with this app each time you sleep!

  • Neo Monsters ($0.99): Hunt for monsters, capture them, and train them to be the best in town.
  • Bouncy Flip ($1.99): Match the floor's color with the landing part of the ball. Make sure your reflexes are in tip-top condition!

Before you download one of the apps mentioned, we recommend that you check the details of the app in the Play Store or App Store. This is important because some of these free apps may have their own special features or disadvantages.

In-app purchases and advertising: Don't be surprised!

Be careful with both free and paid apps, as they can hide in-app purchases and advertising. This is particularly significant when downloading games for children. To avoid unexpected problems, please follow the advice below:

App permissions: Read the small print!

Some apps use clever tactics to generate revenue by collecting and sharing your personal data. To protect your personal data, it is advisable to only grant the permissions required for the app to function. For example, a simple alarm clock app does not need access to your camera or your contacts. Similarly, a flashlight app does not need your location.

We hope these recommendations will help you to safely enjoy free app downloads on Android and iOS devices.

We hope you enjoy our selection of these apps and games for the weekend. Is there an app you would like to share with us? Please let us know in the comments.

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!
