What else do you do with your smartphone apart from making calls and receiving messages? Of course, social media plays a huge role in our lives, and games do for certain segments of the smartphone user base. Basically, the Google Play Store and Apple App Store contain thousands of apps to choose from, of which you might find difficulty in figuring out just which is right for you. We know the thrill of discovering a free app that is actually useful which is why here at Nextpit, we've taken the time to rummage both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store to find free apps that are normally not available for free.
It's important to note that the iOS and Android apps we mention here do have a price tag, but are currently free for a limited time only. We have no idea when the respective offers 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 will not list any apps 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.

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.
