Welcome back to NextPit’s weekly selection of good deals on mobile apps and games for iOS and Android that are usually paid but temporarily free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
NextPit updates this list of free apps at least twice a week – on Tuesdays and Fridays. Between publication and the moment you are reading this article, it is possible that some applications have been paid for again. Google Play Store promos for apps are pretty easy to predict, but it’s more complicated with App Store promos because Apple doesn’t specify how long the discount will last. So better be quick!
Quick tip: If you see an interesting app in this list, but don’t really get to use it yet: Install the app anyway and then delete it from your device. This way the app becomes part of your app library and you can reinstall it for free if you need to. It’s a good way not to miss out on a short-lived promotion.
