We kick off a brand new week with the final list of free apps and games of the season. We have separated our traditional selection of paid apps and games that are free for a limited time only for Android and iOS. Do not waste a moment more and download them from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store now!

As there is no surefire method of guaranteeing just how long the promotions will run, here's a quick tip. Download whatever you think might interest you first. We also recommend checking out our "How to find free apps without being scammed" guide that explains our process in selecting free apps.

Tip: If you find an interesting app listed below, but do not want to use the app or game right now, just install it anyway and remove it from your device after that. Doing so will make sure the app is included in your library for you to install anytime you like in the future for free. 

Free Android apps and games

Free Android apps

  • Video Enhancer Pro ($2.99) [ends this Thursday (23 August)]: This utility allows you to automate the brightness control independently for each app, leaving the screen darker for WhatsApp and brighter for YouTube, for instance. A simple idea, but it can be rather handy.
  • SnipBack ($2.99): Perform voice recordings in a jiffy with short excerpts that are stored locally on your smartphone. This makes it easy to locate the desired recording, even when attending to the tedious task of making transcripts.
  • Simple Nav Bar ($0.99): Customize icons in the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen, with the option to program additional commands for long taps.
  • How Much Can I Spend? ($2.99): A simple finance management app that might help you save money for future use.

  • Pro Qamp ($0.99) [ends this Thursday (23 August)]: Each smartphone already has a built-in music player, but Pro Qamp promises additional features such as a 10-band equalizer, bass booster, and other options for you to listen to your music in different formats.

  • Color Tap ($1.99): Coloring books apparently never go out of fashion. This hobby can now be carried with you wherever you are thanks to illustrations across several categories.
  • Lindabu ($5.99): Do you want to pursue a career on YouTube or as an influencer, but haven't taken the first steps yet? Get a taste of that life in this simulator where you have to create your own vlog.
