Which apps can you currently download for iOS and Android for free, albeit for a limited time only? We have painstakingly combed through a whole bunch and narrowed them down to a list of the finest available apps based on the current App Store and Google Play Store promotions. Do you know of any other tips that you would care to share?
Just like how you do not look a gift horse in the mouth, neither can you look a free app in the mouth. It is for this very reason that we pick out iOS and Android apps that are currently available for free each week. This has long been an ongoing affair, being part of the free promotion offered in both app stores. There is only one catch: these apps normally cost something and the free promotional period will eventually come to an end.
As always, I don’t look through every app for iOS and Android randomly, but compile the best results from the “AppsFree” app, combined through entries in the MyDealz community, and check out tips from the NextPit community. Do you want to help me find free apps as well? Then just make use of the following forum thread:
One more tip before we begin: If you have no use for that particular app at the moment, but think that it might come in handy in the future, just download and install it for now, before uninstalling it. This way, any subsequent installation would not require you to fork out money in the future even if it returns to the original price as your app account has already registered you as having “purchased” it today.
