Every single week, we at NextPit are tasked with searching for free app deals on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store that are available as such on a temporary basis. After all, who doesn't like free stuff?

This list of free apps will be updated twice each week. Of course, the usual caveat applies: at the time of publishing, these apps are free, but might not be so by the time you read this. Google Play Store promos on apps are particular easy to search for, but things get more complicated when it comes to App Store promotions, as Apple does not normally specify just how long the discount is valid for.

Quick tip: Whenever you discover an interesting app or game in our list but do not need to use it just yet (or lack the tons of memory it requires), you can install the app first. After doing so, delete it from your device as the app will already become part of your app library where you can install it again for free when required. This is a reliable method to take full advantage of a short-lived promotion.
