We end another week with a new list of free apps and games for a limited time only for Android and iOS. It is best you hurry up and download these 39 apps for free!

Hooray! It's the weekend once again! For the most part, the NextPit community can probably rejoice in having the day off. So why not let us kick things off by checking out a list of free apps and games that you can enjoy? We don't mean free apps and mobile games in general, but only those that normally cost money but have been made free only for the moment.

Since these apps and games are often only offered for free for a short time only, it is advisable for you to strike quickly. Antoine has already told you how you can discover such offers in his "How to find free apps without being scammed" guide earlier this week. However, we'd also appreciate it if you could let us know about such deals in the NextPit forum.

Tip: If you find an interesting app in the list below, but don't want to use the app or game right now, install it anyway, before uninstalling it from your device. That way, it will be included in your library, and you can install it for free in the future when you need it.

Free Android apps and games

Free apps for Android

  • English for All ($0.99) [ends this Sunday!]: This app helps you learn the English language regardless of your previous level of knowledge
  • Speedometer GPS Pro ($0.99): We've recommended this speedometer (also suitable for biking) to you several times before. But beware: The app obviously consumes a lot of battery power!
  • New Math Puzzles for Geniuses 2021 ($0.99): You certainly don't need to be super smart to enjoy this math app, but as a brain teaser, these number puzzles do their job well
  • QR and Barcode Scanner Pro ($1.99): Very highly rated (4.8 stars) QR code and barcode scanner. Here is the ad-free Pro version

Free games for Android

  • Sudoku Challenge ($1.99): A list of free games isn't complete until there's a Sudoku app tucked somewhere in there, right? RIGHT!!!
  • Theme Solitaire Tripeaks Tri Power PV ($3.49): A list of free games isn't complete unless a solitaire app is also part of it. Okay, don't tell me - I'll notice that myself
  • Shadow of Death: Dark Knight - Stickman Fighting ($0.99): Horizontal scrolling offline RPG where you use your Shadow Blade to scythe down enemies

Free Apps and Games for iOS

Free Apps for iOS

  • Big Clock ($0.99): This app conjures a clock widget on your screen. If you want, it can even be so big that it covers the entire screen
  • AirDisk Pro ($3.99): AirDisk Pro makes a comeback on our list. The app lets you access your files on the iPhone and iPad (or iPod Touch) via Windows or macOS
  • Marklist ($0.99): Get a great post suggested, but don't have time for it right now (because you're already downloading free apps)? Marklist will help you keep track of it for later

  • Scan to Go ($11.99): The app transforms your iPhone into a mobile scanner and lets you save the results as an image or PDF file
  • Trump Stickers and Trumpmoji ($0.99): Want something really silly? Then get over 200 stickers and "Trumpmojis" for your instant messenger. Seriously, before you download this nonsense, make your own stickers

  • Lock Notes Pro ($3.99): Hides your notes using passwords or your device's biometrics (Touch ID/Face ID)

  • Empty School Simulator ($5.49): In this game, you're all alone in a school. What a relief in contrast to countless completely overcrowded multiplayer games, right?
  • Deemo ($1.99): This music game is ranked #8 in the App Store category, after all. In the game, you help a girl who has fallen from the sky and lost her memory. Solve musical tasks to bring her back home
  • Dream a little dream ($0.99): This game takes you to a world of dreams. The trip through the clouds is wonderfully relaxing and is accompanied by a great soundtrack as you enjoy retro graphics in bright cotton candy colors
  • Pixel Push Football ($1.99): We're sticking with the pixelated retro-style graphics theme, and in this case, it's a cleverly designed football game
  • MyHouse - Games for Kids ($3.49): This game targets the very young, aged 2-5. The game promotes the attention and logical understanding of kids
  • Baby Games ($3.49): Do you get lured by games for babies? If so, I have another recommendation here
  • Block Run World ($0.99): Run through the neighborhood and avoid obstacles. You can do that with this game not only on the iPhone, but also on the Apple Watch!
  • AR Runner ($0.99): Turn the real world into an augmented reality obstacle course. Just be careful not to crash into cars or run into other people
  • Math Racing 2 Pro ($0.99): Do you also wonder day and night about why there isn't a fun 3D racing game where you can learn math at the same time? I do, and here is the solution to that question!
  • Cubes - Brain Teaser ($3.49): Cubes is one of those puzzle games that is easy to learn and instantly addictive. Don't ask me how I know that

And that's it for now, be sure to stay tuned here on NextPit as we'll keep you posted whenever there are free apps up for grabs again. If you find links in the article to apps that are no longer free, please let us know in the comments. Until then, have a great weekend!

I started blogging in 2008 and have written for Mobilegeeks, Stadt Bremerhaven, Basic Thinking and Dr. Windows. I've been at NextPit since 2021, where I also discovered my passion for podcasts. I have been particularly interested in Android phones for many years now, and would like to get involved with the highly exciting smart home market. LEt's see, did I miss anything else? Oh yes, I love Depeche Mode and suffer with Schalke 04.
