As the week comes to a close, this means you have some free time to enjoy some mobile action on your handset. nextpit has curated with a specially crafted list of free apps and games from Google Play and Apple App Store so that you will be able to keep yourself entertained .

Normally, these apps will come with a price, but for a limited time only, you can pick them up for free on iPhone and Android. Do take note that this list is published twice each week.

These are not free apps by any means. Normally, they are paid apps on the Google Play and Apple App Store which will require you to pay if you want them. However, developers do feel generous from time to time 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.

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.

Android apps available for free for a limited time

Android apps for productivity and lifestyle

  • Smart navigation bar ($0.99): Many of us are used to gestures to navigate the Android interface, but just in case you want a navigation bar, here is an option.

Android Games

  • Balloons Pop Pro ($1.49): This is a single-player game that requires you to pop balloons of different colors and score the highest points possible. It does require a certain degree of strategy though... 
  • Traffic Jam Cars Puzzle Legend ($4.99): It is peak hour and you need to make your way through insane traffic! How will you slide your way through?

  • Undead City Survivor Premium ($0.99): Zombies, zombies everywhere! You start off weak, but eventually, you become this super-powerful character whose attacks decimate hordes of zombies that bear down on you. A Vampire Survivor clone.
  • Infinity Highway ($0.99): A racing game that is intense and sure to make your palms sweat as you attempt to be the fastest car on the block.
