Even if the day feels a bit mundane, there's always a spark to ignite your enthusiasm! Discover that spark at nextpit's free apps of the week roundup, where we present a banquet of complimentary iOS and Android apps. Just a few taps to download and install, and you're on your way to explore endless possibilities!

Keep in mind, these iPhone and Android apps, typically paid, are free for a limited time only. So, it's definitely worthwhile to check what's hot on Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Though the apps listed here are currently free, these deals can disappear without notice, subject to the developer's whims. Be aware, any app's promotional period could end abruptly.

NextPit ensures none of these apps in our free list are rated 3.5 stars or higher. Unlike our Top 5 Apps of the Week, we did not install and review any of the listed apps. You are strongly encouraged to perform your due diligence before downloading, as some of them might have hidden in-app purchases.

Tip: If you find an interesting app on our list but don't need it now, install, and delete it. This will save the app to your library, allowing you to install it later without having to fork out a fee, even after the promotion ends.
