You got the best smartphone in the world for Christmas and are desperately looking for top apps for iOS and Android that normally cost money but are currently free? We have a hand-picked selection of free apps for Android smartphones and iPhones that are guaranteed to be easy on your Christmas-strapped wallet.

You can find this app selection twice a week at nextpit—we publish it every Tuesday and Saturday. So if you're not just looking for app bargains today, but regularly, why not check back often?

Unlike our top 5 apps of the week, we don't test all of these apps. However, we make sure that the apps are not microtransaction hells and have at least 3.5 stars in the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

Also important: Many of these promotions are only valid for a few hours or days. So by the time you read this article, one of the free apps may cost money again. Please let us know and we will remove the app from the article.

Another hot tip: If you've seen an exciting app but don't need it right now, download and install it anyway. This way, you have "bought" it once for free and it will be available in your app library forever—even if you delete it from your smartphone afterwards.

I have been writing about technology since 2004 with a strong passion for smartphones, photography, and IoT, especially in the world of smart homes and AI ever since they debuted. I'm also an avid cook and bake pizza at least three times a week using my Ooni Koda 16. In order to compensate for all the consumed calories, I indulge in sporting activities on a daily basis while strapping on at least two fitness trackers. I am strongly convinced that you can DIY a lot of things if you put your mind to it - including a photovoltaic system and power station.
