Tired of your current phone apps? Explore new ones with our Free iOS and Android Apps of the Week column, published bi-weekly. Discover when developers offer paid apps for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Check it out to find something that catches your interest!

This is different from our "Top 5 Apps of the Week" list, since all the apps we cover here are temporarily free. We have selected apps that feature minimal microtransactions and carry a minimum 3.5-star rating for quality assurance.

These apps are free for a little while before they revert to their paid status. If you come across an app that is listed here but is no longer free, do let us know, and we'll update our article.

Another hot tip: If you come across an exciting app but don't need it right now, download and install it anyway. This way, you have "bought" it once for free, and it will be available in your app library forever—even if you delete it from your smartphone after that.

  • Equalizer & Bass Booster Pro ($2.49): If you feel like your phone's audio quality can be tweaked further, why not give this app a go?
