We have now come to the end of yet another hectic week at work and life in general. In fact, it is hard to believe that half a year is going to pass us by soon. Why not sit back and relax by enjoying some free apps and games on the Google Play and Apple App Store? 

Normally, these apps will have a price tag attached to them, 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 weekly, on Tuesdays and on Fridays.

These are not free apps by themselves, let's be honest. 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—look through 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 3.5 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.
