Once again this week, apps and games for both Android phones and iPhones are available to download for free for a limited time only. We will share with you how you can get your hands on these precious downloads.

If you've been following NextPit for a while, you will know what to expect here in this article: The Google Play Store and Apple's App Store regularly offer discounts and promotions where you can obtain paid content for free for a limited time only. We collate these freebies and list them for you, But unlike our list of the five best apps of the week, we will not try the apps out on purpose. Hence, be a little bit careful before you fall into a money pit as some apps may still include microtransactions.

    Hi I checked the speed camera radar and bass bosster pro and both are still marketed with a price and when you try and download it, it starts the payment process.

      Yeah, Marc, the article was published on Tuesday, so it's possible that today, Thursday, some of the apps are not free anymore. These are free apps free for a limited time, and we usually post this article twice in the week: Tuesday and Friday. So feel free to pass by at these days to make sure you will always have them for free.
