Now that we've come to the end of yet another long week, it is time to blow off some steam from work and life in general by relaxing with some fun apps and games. Having said that, playing the same old games each week gets boring quickly. Or perhaps you are looking for a change in life. Fortune smiles on you then as you are in the right place. We have specially curated apps and games for both Android phones and iPhones that are available for free for a limited time only! Let us show you how you can get your hands on these precious app downloads without having to empty your bank account.

This is because 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 install all the apps listed below. However, do proceed with some degree of caution because some of these might require microtransactions to help you go further in the game. What's your highlight of the week? Maybe UT Promoter Pro, an app for inspiring influencers looking into upping their subscriber base? Or maybe the game Despotism 3k, where you yourself are an almighty AI to fight against humanity?

Tip: Do you want to keep the free app for the future—but don't need it right now? Just download and install it once, and uninstall it if you need the space. This way, it will still be added to and kept in your list of purchased apps, and you can download it again in the future for free once you need it.

Free apps for your Android phone

These apps are free in the Google Play Store

  • Livemocha: Learn Languages ($0.99): Traveling abroad these days to a foreign land is easier with machine translation, but why not up the game with this special version of Livemocha?

Perhaps white noise or other background sounds can help you out, and this app does just that by offering familiar, soothing sounds like the pattering rain, gushing waterfalls, the breaking of waves along the shore, and the bubbling brook flowing down. You won't lose any sleep installing this app since it is free for now!

  • No Paint ($1.99): Now this is an interesting app by its own right. The premise is simple: Press "Paint" if you like what you see or "No" if you don't! Slide your finger over to the painting to "Nudge" and tap the painting to pause, title, and save. Mindless yet a time-killer.
  • 100 Balls ($0.99): Just how fast is your reaction time? Find out in this game of 100 Balls that is deceptively simple and yet highly addictive! You will test your reaction time by a simple tap in this game that is powered by a realistic physics engine.

If not, we'll be back early next week with more suggestions—and we're sure you'll find something suitable then! Have you spotted a paid app in the list? Then we would be happy for you to drop a hint to us in the comments!
