With less than a week to go before the end of 2022, most of us would be very excited to start planning for the new year and the celebrations that come with it. While most of you might be on vacation, we at NextPit keep working and bring you a selection of free apps and games from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. These apps usually come with a price tag, but are free to install for a limited time. Won’t it be great to play some games that don’t cost you anything as you ring in the new year?
This list of free apps is updated twice a week. However, the usual caveat applies: these apps are available for free at the time of publication, but by the time you’re reading this article or actually trying out the listed apps, they may have reverted to their paid status. While Google Play Store promotions for apps are relatively easy to find, things get more complicated with the Apple App Store as promotions have no specific timeframe for duration and can disappear in the blink of an eye.
Quick tip: Whenever you come across an interesting app or game in our list but don’t have a use for it yet or your device just has way too much memory, you can install the app for now. After that, you can delete the newly installed app from your device as it would have already become part of your app library. This allows you to install it as needed in the future. This is a reliable method to take full advantage of a short-lived promotion.
