Free Apps for iOS & Android: Free downloads to fill up your smartphone

Are you searching for free apps for your iPhone or Android smartphone? Then you’ve come to the right place, because NextPit summarizes a list of free downloads for the weekend. Below, you’ll find a variety of apps that you can download which will normally cost you something, and these are limited-time offers. So let’s not waste any more time and dive right in!

Do you pay for apps on iOS and Android? If you are aghast at that idea, you can still get ad-free pro versions or other paid apps in this article. That’s because NextPit will show you a list of available free downloads for iOS & Android twice a week that you’d normally have to pay.

As always, we didn’t search the App Store and Google Play Store ourselves for this edition but compiled the finds from several deal communities. Do you also want to search for free apps apart from going through articles like this? You can find a daily app tip on NextPit and learn the art of free downloads in our guide to finding free apps.

Here’s a tip: If you found an interesting app but can’t really use it right now? Install the app anyway, then delete it from your device. That way, the app will become part of your app library, and you can install it again for free when you need it. This is a good way not to miss out on a short-lived promo.
