Android and iPhone (iOS) users can download paid apps and games for free, without resorting to illegal methods or putting the security of personal data at risk. Using third-party services, you can tell when a paid app has temporarily become free on the App Store or Google Play Store, and track possible price promotions and offers. Every day, many applications are free to generate dissemination among users.
Another option is to use an official Google online search service that gives you cash rewards to use as a credit for buying paid apps. Here are some ways to download free apps and games for your mobile phone.

The Apps Gone Free app shows a list of all apps that were paid and are free on the App Store that day. Even though it has discontinued Portuguese support, the app works in Brazil in English and displays on the first page the main programs that are currently free, making the experience intuitive even for users who do not understand the language. Needless to say, the app curates itself and only displays the apps it finds most interesting to download.

All listed apps contain a brief description of their operation, in addition to the original price. A button with a link directs the user immediately to the App Store to complete the download. If you don't find any interesting options that day, you can view the free app lists from previous days. Check them out to find out if any free offers are still in place.
IPhone users can also use the AppShopper website (appshopper) to find paid apps that are temporarily free. Unlike Apps Gone Free, the page does not restrict any apps and shows all programs that are free or on sale that day.
The app list has a description of the tool that tells you its original price and a price history, showing you when it is on sale. To download, simply click on the link that directs you to the App Store. The user can also filter the list to find free apps for iPhone, iPad, macOS or all systems only.

Google Opinion Rewards, available for Android, is a tool where the user must answer Google satisfaction surveys and questionnaires on various topics. Responses will be shared with market researchers to enhance mobile experiences. As a reward, he receives money from his Google account, which serves as a credit to spend as he pleases at the Android store, allowing him to buy apps, games, movies and music.
The frequency of the questionnaires is variable, and the user can choose whether to answer or not. The prize varies according to each survey, being on average $ 1 for each session.
