Just like every weekend, it is time for nextpit's biweekly selection of free apps and games from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for your iPhone or Android phone. Join us as we list applications that are usually paid but are free for a limited time only.

We try to curate this list as best as possible to avoid scamming apps or privacy traps but keep in mind that, unlike our weekly Top 5 Apps selection, we have not tested these apps, which may still offer ads and in-app purchases.

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

  • AppLock Pro ($2.49): Add another layer of protection to your apps and secure access to selected apps with an additional fingerprint face unlock authentication.
  • 3D Earth Pro ($14.99): Its author claims "it's the world's most beautiful app". We don't quite agree, but it is still a very beautiful weather app. 
  • Brightness Control per app ($0.99): Its name is self-explanatory: Customize different brightness levels for different apps and games.

Having written about technology since 2008 for a number of websites in Brazil, Spain, Denmark, and Germany, I specialize in the mobile ecosystem, including various models, components, and apps. I tend to not only value performance and specifications, but also things like repairability, durability, and manufacturer support. I tend to prioritize the end-user's point of view whenever possible.
