Free apps of the week: These 25 paid apps are temporarily free!
We start another weekend with a new list of free apps and games for a limited time in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Enjoy our selection of apps for Android and iOS that are usually paid but can be installed for free on your phone or tablet.
NextPit updates this list every week, so some apps may have returned to paid status if you read this article days after it was published. To check out other app lists, simply go to the apps category of the site to find the most recent list.
At the time of publication, all of the apps listed were available for free on both Android and iOS platforms. If you know of any apps that are currently free and worth a mention or have found a promotion that has ended, do let us 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 it anyway, before uninstalling it from your device. That way, it will be included in your library and you can install it for free in the future when you need it.
