Here we are in the final week of 2022, and we are less than 48 hours away from bringing down the curtain and ushering in 2023. Regardless of what your plan is in terms of celebrating the new year, here is NextPit's bi-weekly selection of free apps and games from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Normally, these apps would cost something, but they are available for free for a limited time only. This is ideal to bring a close to the year, don't you think so?
This list of free apps will be updated twice every week. Do take note that the usual limitations apply, as in these apps being available for free for a limited time only at the time of publishing. In other words, by the time you read this article or actually check out the listed apps, they might have reverted to their paid status. While Google Play Store promos on apps are relatively easy to look out for, things do get more complicated with the Apple App Store as promotions there is no particular time frame on when it will last, and can just disappear in the blink of an eye.
Quick tip: Whenever you come across an interesting app or game in our list but have no use for it just yet, or your device has simply way too much space, you can go ahead and install the app for now. Upon doing so, you can delete the newly installed app from your device as it would already have become part of your app library. This allows you to install it in the future as and when required. This is a reliable method to take full advantage of a short-lived promotion.
