Every weekend we meet at NextPit for my pick of 5 free or paid mobile applications and games that caught my eye on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.

Every week I try to bring you the best possible apps that aren’t data mining traps or microtransaction ramps. In addition to my own finds, I also include apps recommended by the NextPit community and shared on our forum.

From mobile games to productivity apps, here are NextPit’s 5 free and paid Android/iOS apps this week. We publish this selection every week, you can check out my recommendations for last week’s 5 apps from the week.

Paper Tag (Android & iOS)

Papertag is an application that allows you to create codes and associate them with images, videos, files or links. You can then write these codes on a handwritten notepad and scan through the app to access the associated file.

This can be a way to supplement your handwritten notes with attachments stored on your smartphone or accessible through your web browser. No account is required and the codes generated on your smartphone cannot be used on any other device (unless you have synced it via the cloud). Of course, two iterations of the same code can occur on two different devices, but one cannot access the content associated with the other’s code and vice versa.

Regular Notes (Android)

Regular Notes is an all-in-one productivity app that caught my eye. You can take notes, to-do lists, voice notes, access a budget manager, an emotional diary or use it as a timer. Basically, it should be an all-in-one app.

The interface is very well presented and neat, in addition to being super ergonomic. The text editor for taking notes is quite powerful. The only problem is that you have to upgrade to the premium version to unlock most of the features apart from the notes and to-do lists. But for $0.99 a month or $8.99 a year, an experienced user can use this as an all-in-one app.

Snapped (iOS)

This application allows you to send a WhatsApp message without adding the recipient to your contacts. It’s useful if you want to send a unique message to someone you’ll never talk to again (a buyer on an online site, a fellow passenger on a ride-sharing app, etc.).

Just enter the person’s phone number manually or scan it with your camera, and you’ll be automatically forwarded to a WhatsApp chat to send your message.

Price: Free / Ads: None / In-app purchases: None / Account: Not required

Final Fantasy VI (Android and iOS)

I’ve never played Final Fantasy and I’ve always hated turn-based game mechanics. That is it. However, I am not denying the importance of the Final Fantasy saga in video game history.

If you are a fan or like such game genre, this mobile port can be a very interesting option for you. The work on the game’s soundtrack seems to be especially appreciated in the various reviews I was able to read online. But for once, I’m not going to buy a game that I would recommend.

$17.99 is just too expensive for me which is more not to be attached to this particular gaming universe and not have any sort of nostalgia for such titles.

Price: $17.99 / Ads: None / In-app purchases: No / Account: Not required

Night skating (Android and iOS)

I love the atmosphere of this game with its retro graphics and synthetic waves soundtrack. Night Skate is an endless runner played horizontally, in which you have to skate endlessly while avoiding obstacles, in a nighttime atmosphere, with a bit of summer and lulled by super chill music.

Price: $2.99 ​​/ Ads: None / In-App Purchases: None / Account: Not Required
