A new week and a new list of apps and games for Android and iOS that are free for a limited time in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store! Don’t waste any time and save some money by downloading these services to your phone.

Our team updates this lists twice every week, so if you are reading this article a day after its release, some apps may have changed their status from free to paid in the stores. At the time of publishing this article, all the apps listed were available for free for Android and iOS. If you know of any apps that are currently free and worth mentioning, let me know in the comments.

Tip: if you find an interesting app in the list below, but don’t want to use the app or game right now, install the app anyway, then remove it from your device. That way, the service will be integrated into your library and you can install it for free in the future when you need it.
