Android and iOS: 21 apps & games now free for a limited time only

Yet another week has passed by, and here we are with a brand new list of apps and games for both Android and iOS platforms that will be available for free for a limited time only in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Don’t waste any more time and save some money while you’re at it by downloading these recommended apps onto your smartphone.

Our team updates this lists every single week, so if you are reading this article a day after its release, the status of some apps may no longer be free in their respective app stores. At the time of publishing, all of the apps listed here were available for Android and iOS platforms for free. If you know of any apps that are currently free and worth mentioning, let me know in the comments.

Here’s a 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, before uninstalling it from your device. Doing so will make sure that it is already part of your library which you can install for free in the future as and when required.

Temporarily free Android apps on the Google Play StoreFree Android productivity apps on the Google Play Store for a limited time only
Dark screen filter ($0.99): This filter is not only easy on your wallet, but also on your eyes. Maybe a useful addition to the on-board tools of your smartphone.
My musical scores ($2.99): No matter if guitar chords or piano scores: This sheet music scanner shows you the desired notes on your smartphone and scrolls them there at the desired speed. Nice tool for musicians.
Bookmark Manager ($0.99): Bookmarks are stored by every browser – but thanks to this app you can also do that independently of the browser if you want to be less limited. You can sort and categorize your links and get a better overview of your collection.
Learn to run ($4.99): This app wants to teach you how to run properly – to learn how to run in order to lose weight. You can save a whopping $4.99 with this app, so you’ll have the money for the next lunch back in it.

Reminder Pro ($1.99): I wanted to remind you of something… Oh yeah: Don’t forget to download the Reminder Pro app before it becomes chargeable again!
Electron Config Pro ($6.99): We’ve already recommended this electron configurator to you, too, but for the price we’ll gladly do it again.
Temporarily free Android games
Animal Round ($0.99): In this educational game kids can learn new animals. These are sorted by categories such as rainforest, Savannah, farm, etc. – so the animals, not the kids. Ad-free, without in-app purchases and currently also free.
Dead Bunker 2 HD ($0,99): At Google Play someone writes that the 1st-person adventure game “Dead Bunker 2! is so bad that it’s already good again. I think you should find out for yourself if that’s the case.
Cooking Speedy Premium ($0.99): We already recommended this kitchen and cooking game to you on Saturday – but sometimes the reheated food tastes better than on the first day. Meal time!
Sudoku Challenge ($1.99): I like Sudoku puzzles. Often the ads are annoying, which is why I willingly pressed the download button for Sudoku Challenge. Well rated app (4.6 stars)!
