Well, it looks like we have arrived at yet another weekend, and for those who do not follow Euro 2024, perhaps you might want to spend more time with your smartphone. Rather than go through the same old apps each week, why not try something new? Of course, we do all the hard work behind the scenes to look for new apps and games, whether they are productivity apps or entertainment titles to keep you glued to your smartphone. As usual, we have a fresh list of apps that is currently available completely free of charge on both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Perhaps you wonder, "How is this possible?" I'm going to answer straight here. Some developers do have a spirit of generosity to make available their titles for free, albeit only for a while. This provides you the chance to experience their premium apps without spending a single penny. As mentioned, these are limited-time offers, so be quick about it!

However, it's important to note that this list is different from our carefully curated Top 5 Apps of the Week list. After all, we haven't reviewed each app personally in this collection. Some of these apps may contain advertisements and offer in-app purchases, but they still offer much value. Go ahead and check out this week's selection of free apps. Who knows? You might just discover a hidden gem of a game or a productivity tool!

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

  • Applock Pro ($4.49): Increase the privacy of your smartphone with this app, as it makes sure each app will require some sort of biometric, PIN, or password to access specific apps.

  • Juggly Ball ($1.99): How good are your reflexes? Can you keep on juggling the balls for as long as possible?

  • Tap Dot Tap ($0.29): Just how fast are your reflexes? This game will surely give you a glimpse of how fast you can tap the dots.

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!

With mobile apps, there is a handful of those that feature sneaky tactics to make money by collecting and sharing your personal information. Fear not, dear readers, for we have some invaluable advice to help you safeguard your precious data. We recommend you be discerning when granting permissions to the installed apps.

After all, why should a simple alarm clock need access to your camera or contacts? And why does a flashlight app need to know your exact location? By carefully choosing which permissions to grant, you can effectively protect your personal information from prying eyes.

So go ahead and explore the vast array of free app downloads on your Android or iOS device, with the peace of mind that your data remains secure and safeguarded.

That's all for now when it comes to this week's edition of free apps and games! Is there an app or game you think the community ought to benefit from? Do let us know in the comments.
