Which apps are currently free for iOS and Android? Over here at NextPit, we scour the Google Play Store and the AppStore twice a week for reduced or even free promotions for Pro versions of apps. This Saturday, you can also look out for free Pro versions of top drawer apps as well as exciting mobile games to keep you occupied on the move. Don’t waste any more time as these offers are normally valid only for a short period time.
Everyone knows that the Google Play Store and Apple App Store contain free and paid apps! However, not everyone knows that both Apple and Google sometimes lower the price of paid mobile games and apps and heck, even offer them for free. Hence, this article is not about free apps like WhatsApp or Facebook, but about free stuff that would normally cost you something!
Here is a handy tip before we begin. If you have found something that you like below but your smartphone lacks the necessary storage space, why not download and install the app before uninstalling it? This way, you will be able to download the same app for free in the future.
