Welcome to this week's edition of the free apps of the week. We scoured the Google Play Store and Apple App Store every week for apps that are available for free for a limited time only. Now, these apps usually come with a price tag, but for one reason or another, they are available to the masses for free for a limited time only.

This list of free apps will be published twice a week. The usual caveat applies in this case: these apps are available for free at the time of publishing, but by the time you read this article or actually check out the listed apps, they might have reverted to their paid status. Neither Google Play Store nor Apple App Store promos on apps are relatively easy to look out for since there is no particular time frame on when it will last, so they can just be removed from the list just as quickly as they were put up.

Our recommendation: 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.
