Phew! The crazy sales period is over, or is it? Perhaps you might still be looking out for stuff to buy this coming Christmas. Well, just to distract yourself for a moment, check out our twice-weekly edition of free apps of the week. When it comes to applications, our curated list of free apps and games on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for your iPhone or Android smartphone allows you to fully utilize them. Typically paid apps, these have been temporarily made available for free.

To start, we have curated a collection of games and apps that have been carefully vetted to be free from scams and privacy issues. However, it is important to note that this list differs from our weekly Top 5 Apps of the Week article, as we have not individually reviewed each of these apps. Consequently, some of them may contain advertisements and provide options for in-app purchases.

Tip: If you come across an interesting app on our list but don't need it now, install it first and delete it afterward. This will cause the app to be saved to your library, allowing you to install it later for free, even after the promotion ends.

    The last couple of weeks some of the "free" apps when gone to are not free. The latest is the KX Music Player Pro. When I clicked on the link it shows as being $2.99 not free.
