Have you ever killed time by scrolling through your phone in an endless muscle memory cycle without accomplishing anything productive? Whether it's browsing news, social media, or exploring the wide range of apps on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, you can get sucked into this mindless scrolling while being apprehensive about which apps are worth installing. We understand that there are downsides to this habit, although we also appreciate the thrill of 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 available for free.
It's important to note that the iOS and Android apps we mention here are currently 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 catches your attention as soon as possible, before it goes back to being a paid app.
We do not recommend anything with a rating of fewer than 3.5 stars. This will be different from our Top 5 Apps of the Week since we will not run any in-depth reviews of the listed apps.
