Your smartphone is more than just a communications device. It is able to let you book tickets, capture photos, shoot videos, perform online banking transactions, and much, much more. A whole lot of it depends on the type of apps you install, and with thousands of apps to choose from in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store, you might be spoilt for choice in finding out which apps suit you best. We are all familiar with the thrill of discovering a free app that can actually come in handy, which is why we at nextpit have taken the time to scour the Apple App Store and Google Play Store to discover free apps that are normally available at a price.
It is important to note that the iOS and Android apps we mention here are priced, but are made available for free for a limited time only. We have no idea when the respective offers will end. Hence, it is crucial to seize the opportunity and download/install any app that catches your attention as soon as possible, before it returns to being a paid app.
We will not feature 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 do not run any in-depth reviews of the listed apps.
