Go Free or Go Home: Use This Week’s Free Android and iOS Apps!
Since it’s a new start to the week, you might want to install some new apps on your phone. For our weekly roundup of free apps, we scoured both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store for exclusive deals on paid apps that are now available for free for a limited time. Here’s a great way to save money while downloading these free apps for your Android or iPhone today!
Please note that although these apps are free at the time of publication, there is a risk that they will revert to their paid status by the time you read this or attempt to download them. Unfortunately, there is no set time frame for app promotions in the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, and these offers can be removed as quickly as they were added.
We’d also like to note that while we compile this list of free apps, we don’t test them as our top 5 apps of the week. Therefore, we recommend that you exercise caution and do your own research before downloading any app, as some apps may contain in-app purchases or hidden microtransactions.
Here is a recommendation: If you come across an app or game on our list that interests you but you don’t need right now, consider installing it and then deleting it from your device. This will save it to your app library so you can reinstall it in the future when you need it. This is a great way to take full advantage of short-term promotions.
