Have you ever caught yourself mindlessly scrolling through your phone, accomplishing nothing productive? Whether it's browsing through news, social media, or exploring the vast array of apps on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, it's easy to get lost and unsure of which ones to actually install. We understand the drawbacks of this habit, but we also appreciate the excitement that comes with discovering a free app that is actually useful. That's why, here at Nextpit, we've taken the time to search through both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store to find free apps that are typically not offered for free.
It's important to note that the iOS and Android apps we mention here are currently available for free, but only for a limited time. We have no control over when this offer will end. Therefore, it's crucial to seize the opportunity and download/install any app that captures your attention as soon as possible, before it reverts back to being a paid app.
We also ensured that these free apps in our list are rated 3.5 stars or higher. Unlike our Top 5 Apps of the Week, we do not run any in-depth reviews of the listed apps.
