Do you like to check out new apps all the time? The gods are smiling on you then. Just like clockwork each week, we have come up with a broad selection of apps and games for both Android phones and iPhones that are free for a limited time only! We will share with you how you can get your hands on these precious downloads without having to fork out a single cent.

If you've been following NextPit for a while, you will know what to expect here in this article: The Google Play Store and Apple's App Store offer discounts and promotions on a regular basis where you can obtain paid apps for free for a limited time only.

We have rounded up these free apps and listed them for you, unlike our list of the five best apps of the week, we will not test every single temporarily free app. Hence, be a little bit cautious, so you do not end up in a money pit as some apps may still include microtransactions.

Tip: Do you want to keep some interesting free apps for the future? Just download them once and uninstall them if you need the space. This way, those now free apps will still be added to and kept in your list of purchased apps, and you can download them again in the future for free once you need them.
