Ordinarily, purchased apps on Google Play and the Apple App Store will cost you money, but occasionally, some creators may opt to spread the love by making their apps freely available to everyone. We do this twice a week by searching the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for the greatest deals. Download them now on your iPhone or Android before they become paid content.

Do take note that while they’re free as of publishing, these deals tend to expire without any due warning based on the developer’s whims and fancy. The promotional period for apps on these platforms can be both unpredictable and can end suddenly.

Therefore, we recommend that you exercise caution and conduct your own research before downloading any of these apps, as some may contain in-app purchases or hidden costs.
