We’ve put together another jam-packed package for the NextPit community. Inside are premium apps and games for Android and iOS that are free for a limited time only.
You know the drill: We offer a list of free downloads twice a week. Of course, we don’t mean the kind of free apps and mobile games that are available for free at any time. We’re focusing on premium apps that can only be downloaded for free for a few days.
But time is running out, because we often don’t know exactly when the apps will cease to be free. We already shared how you can discover such offers in his “How to find free apps without being scammed” guide last week. However, we’d also appreciate it if you could let us know about such deals in the NextPit community.
Tip: If you find an interesting app in the list below, but don’t want to use the app or game right now, install it anyway, before uninstalling it from your device. That way, it will be included in your library, and you can install it for free in the future when you need it.
