Hoo, boy! Before you know it, we have arrived at week 50 of 2023. As you wind down for the rest of the year, perhaps it is time to take a stock check of your smartphone apps and see whether there is anything new you would like to try. This article is published twice a week to provide a fresh list of free apps and games without any repeat from the previous article. Do note the listed apps here are free for a limited time only, and we do not know when they will end up as paid again.

Without any further delay, check out our list of games and apps for the week. While we do perform due diligence on making sure are free from scams and privacy concerns, take note that this list is different from our Top 5 Apps of the Week since we do not individually review these apps, 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.
