It is that time of the week once again, 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. Keep reading to find our list of 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

  • QR and Barcode Scanner Pro ($1.99): Go beyond the QR code capabilities on your camera app, and create and store different types of matrix codes.
  • Amortization Loan Calculator 2 ($14.99): Nobody likes to be in debt. Use this app to calculate your way out of it by knowing how much you save by repaying early.

  • Flying Real Dragon Simulator ($9.99): Already missing some House of the Dragon? You are not sure how "real" it is, but reviews are pretty good on this fantasy aerial combat simulator.

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.
