An all-new week begins, and if you have not been caught up in the Diablo 4 maelstrom that consumed your days and nights since the game was released a couple of weeks back, perhaps enjoying some mobile action is your flavor of the week. NextPit's specially crafted list of free apps and games from Google Play and Apple App Store is here to help you kick off your week in the right direction.
These are not free apps by themselves, let's get straight about it. 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 occasionally 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 none of these apps in our free list have a lower than 4.0 rating. Unlike our Top 5 Apps of the Week, we have not reviewed any of these. You are encouraged to perform 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.
