Have you ever found yourself mindlessly scrolling through your phone without accomplishing anything? This includes browsing news and social media, as well as the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. With thousands of apps to choose from, it's easy to get lost and not know which ones to install. We are aware of the drawbacks, but also the excitement of finding something free that is actually useful. That's why here at nextpit, we have searched through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store to find free apps that are usually not free.

Firstly, it's important to note that the iOS and Android apps mentioned here are currently available for free but for a limited time. We have no control over when this offer will end. In other words, seize the opportunity! Download and install any app that catches your attention as soon as possible before it becomes paid again.

We also ensured that these free apps in our list carry a rating of 3.5 stars or higher. Unlike our Top 5 Apps of the Week, we do not perform in-depth reviews of the apps listed. 

Tip: If you come across an interesting app that is listed here but don't need it just yet, we would recommend you install it before deleting it. By doing so, you will save the app in your library and install it later without having to pay for it, even after the promotion has ended.
