A brand-new week means it's time to review the apps on your phone and see if there's anything new that catches your attention. We publish this article twice a week to provide a fresh list of free apps and games. Please note that the apps listed here are free for a limited time only, and we can't predict when they will become paid again.

Without further delay, here is our list of games and apps for the week. We have carefully checked them to ensure they are free from scams and privacy concerns. However, please be aware that this list is different from our Top 5 Apps of the Week, and we have not reviewed each of these apps individually, so some may contain advertisements and 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.
