Coffee is always a great way to start off your day, never mind your week. The next best thing to a caffeine-infused beverage would be NextPit's specially curated list of free apps and games from Google Play and Apple App Store. Normally, these are apps that will cost you something, but for a limited time only, you can pick them up for free on iPhone and Android. Do take note that this list is published twice each week.
These are not free apps by themselves, let's get this straight. These are normally paid apps on Google Play and Apple App Store which will require you to pay if you want them. However, developers do get generous from time to time by making their apps available to the masses for free. This is what we do twice a week—scour the Google Play Store and Apple App Store to look for the best bargains for you.
Note that while the list of apps here is free at the time of publishing, these deals have a tendency to expire without any prior warning based on the developer's whims and fancy. The promotional period for apps on these platforms can be unpredictable and can end just like that.
NextPit ensures no low-rating apps in our free list, but unlike our Top 5 Apps of the Week, none of these were reviewed. You are encouraged to do your due diligence before downloading, as some of them might have hidden costs.

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