Download now! Free Android and iOS apps of the week
Welcome to this week’s edition of Free Apps of the Week. Each week, we’ve scoured the Google Play Store and Apple App Store for apps that are available for free for a limited time only. Nowadays, these apps usually come with a price tag, but for one reason or another, they are only available for free to the masses for a limited time.
The list of free apps is published twice a week. In this case, the usual caveat applies: these apps are available for free at the time of publication, but by the time you read this article or actually look at the apps listed, they may have reverted to their paid status. Neither the Google Play Store nor the Apple App Store promotions are easy to monitor for apps, as there’s no specific time frame for when they’ll take effect, so they can be delisted just as quickly as they’re listed.
Our proposal: If you come across an interesting app or game on our list, but you don’t have a use for it yet, or your device simply has too much space, you can install the app right now. You can then delete the newly installed app from your device as it has now become part of your app library. This allows you to install it as needed in the future. This is a reliable way to take full advantage of a short-lived promotion.
