An all-new week begins, which means it is time to enjoy more mobile action on your handset. NextPit's specially crafted list of free apps and games from Google Play and Apple App Store is here to help you kick off your week in the right direction.
These are not free apps by themselves, let's get straight about it. These are normally paid apps on Google Play and Apple App Store which will require you to pay if you want them. However, developers do get generous occasionally by making their apps available to the masses for free. This is what we do twice a week—scour the Google Play Store and Apple App Store to look for the best bargains for you.
- Don't miss this: How to find free apps for Android and iOS
NextPit ensures none of these apps in our free list have a rating that is lower than 3.5. Unlike our Top 5 Apps of the Week, we have not reviewed any of these. You are encouraged to perform your due diligence before downloading, as some of them might have hidden costs.
Tip: If you find an interesting app on our list but don't need it now, install, and delete it afterward. This will save the app to your library, allowing you to install it later for free, even after the promotion ends.
