With the start of a new week, it’s time to update Droid Tools’ collection of free apps and games for your iPhone or Android phone from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Join us as we highlight applications that are normally paid but are available for free for a limited time.

We always try to seek games that do not have scams or privacy traps in them but bear in mind that we have not individually reviewed these apps. This means some of them might feature ads and in-app purchases.

If you find an interesting app on our list but don’t need it right now, install it first and then uninstall it. This saves the software to your library, allowing you to install it later for free, even after the promotion has ended.

android and ios free apps

Android apps available for free for a limited time

  • Thunderspace Rain Sleep Sounds ($2.99): Another app with a pretty descriptive name, relax and concentrate better with nature or white noise sounds.

  • Videdit ($0.99): Another well-reviewed video editor for iPadOS and iOS, edit your clips, make collages, and apply effects to your next best memories.

iOS games

Hopefully, you found our picks to kick off this week enjoyable. Did you notice anything noteworthy, or do you have a favorite program or game from the Google Play Store or Apple program Store? Please leave your suggestions in the comments!
