A phone is nothing without apps. If you do not know what you want to install on your phone, fret not. Here is our bi-weekly free iOS and Android Apps of the Week column that keeps you abreast of a bunch of games and productivity apps that might be interesting to you!

This is a very different creature from our "Top 5 Apps of the Week" article as all the apps listed here are free on a temporary basis only. We painstakingly selected these apps to feature minimal microtransactions and all of them have a minimum 3.5-star rating for quality control.

However, we do not know when the app developers will make these games and apps available for free before returning to their paid status. Should you come across an app that is listed but is no longer free, do inform us to make the relevant updates.


Here's a tip: If you discover an app that you'd like to have but don't need right now, download and install it first. It would be considered as "bought" and it will be available in your app library forever—even if you uninstall it from your smartphone right after.
