Your smartphone does far more than just letting you keep in touch with the world. It is your gateway to booking a holiday, purchasing tickets to concerts and movies, a journal, an archiving tool with photos and videos, a mobile banking device, and a whole lot more! How you use your phone also depends on the type of apps installed. With thousands of apps to choose from in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store, it can become quite overwhelming.
We are familiar with the thrill of discovering a free app that can actually come in handy in everyday use, which is why nextpit has taken the time to search the Apple App Store and Google Play Store to hunt down free apps that normally have a price tag attached to them.
Do take note that the iOS and Android apps we mention here are all paid apps, but have been made available for free for a limited time only. We do not know when the respective offers will end. This is why it is important you seize the opportunity and download/install any app that catches your attention 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.
