Now that we have arrived at the end of another week, and one more week closer to Christmas, has all the stress of the year-end holidays caught up with you? Perhaps you might want to blow some steam with some free apps for Android and iOS that we took the trouble searching for.

Please note that the free apps on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store are available on a temporary basis at the moment, and we do not know just how long will these deals last as by the time you read this, some of them might have been removed from the list.

This list of free apps will be updated twice each week—one at the beginning, and the other at the end. Do understand that we did not go through each of these apps individually, but neither would we recommend the obvious lemons to our dear readers by putting forward a lowly-rated app.

Quick tip: If you have come across an interesting app or game in our list this week but do not see any need for it yet, just go ahead and install it without any qualms. Make sure you have enough storage space beforehand, and uninstall the app once you are done. Doing so will allow you to have that app listed in your app library, of which you can install in the future as and when required.
