Like every weekend, we meet on NextPit for my selection of 5 free or paid mobile apps and games that caught my eye on Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
I try every week to offer you the best possible apps that aren’t personal data traps or microtransaction nests. To my own insights I also add the apps unearthed by the NextPit community and shared on our forum, which I invite you to consult.
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 also consult my 5 apps from the last week.
Free game – Zoo 2: Animal Park
Your animals, your success, your zoo game
Tochi – mood tracker, diary (Android)
Tochi is an emotional tracking app that makes it easy to track your daily highs and lows, moods, and other symptoms related to common mood disorders like bipolar disorder, depression, and PTSD.
You can track your mood with emotional “orbs,” colored orbs based on a dominant emotion. You can also record your different emotional triggers and your exercises to better control them.
The application looks very complete and the interface is very beautiful. On the other hand, it contains a lot of ads and the paid version to unlock everything for lifetime requires a purchase of 14 euros. It’s huge. There are many alternatives, more limited but totally free.
- Price: free / advertising: no / in-app purchases: yes / account: not required / French language: no
- Download Tochi App – Mood Tracker, Diary from the Google Play Store
Onvy Mindful Health Companion (iOS)
ONVY is a companion fitness app that you can use if you have and work out with an Apple Watch, smartwatch or fitness tracker.
Onvy provides activity monitoring and analysis to work on 4 areas: recovery, activity, mindfulness and stress. You can see at a glance how and which part of your health is changing. Onvy also gives you step-by-step guidance and personalized recommendations on how to optimize various aspects of your health.
ONVY uses the functions of the Apple Health App and integrates the data via HealthKit. You have the option at any time to individually manage the data release and adjust it according to your preferences. But it also works with wearables from Fitbit, Garmin, Polar and Oura.
- Price: free / Ads: no / In-app purchases: no / Account: required / French language: no

NothinK – custom widgets (Android)
Nothing lets you create widgets inspired by Nothing’s design language. The app is just a collection of widgets and wallpapers in itself. To add them to your home screen and get them working, you need to go through the KWGT application, which allows you to create and customize widgets.
The process isn’t very intuitive, but you’ll quickly get the hang of it. And the widgets are overall quite functional and visually very classy. Well, on the other hand, the application is subject to a fee and costs 1.09 euros.
- Price: €1.09 / Advertising: no / In-app purchases: no / Account: not required / French language: no
Notion – Notes, Projects, Documents (iOS)
At NextPit, we love productivity tools and we love using a different platform for each daily task. Basecamp, Officely, Jamboard, Google Meet/Calendar/Sheet, Slack etc. It’s so awesome and I really (no) love it!
Notion falls into this category of collaborative platforms, but you can also use them for yourself to better organize your projects. Think of it as a steroid-enhanced note-taking app.
The basic free application is already very complete, but you can of course switch to a paid formula for a subscription of 5.49 euros per month or 47.99 euros per year. Something more, the application exists in French!
- Price: free / advertising: no / in-app purchases: yes (€5.49/month or €47.99/year) / account: required / French language: yes
- Download the Notion app – Notes, Projects, Documents from the Apple App Store

Apex Legends Mobile (Android and iOS)
Apex Legends is one of the countless Fortnite clones, but it performed quite well and managed to more or less stand out, thanks in particular to its ping system (the fact of showing something to your teammates without having to tell them or write them ) very polished and its gameplay more aggressive and weapon-centric.
I’ve been waiting for the mobile port of this game for months. It finally came out this week. I haven’t been able to test it yet, but it’s one of the first things I’ll do once I’m done writing this article. Basically, expect a battle royale where you have to eliminate all enemies in a huge arena. Everyone for their skin, solo or in a team.
The gameplay is in FPS mode, so in first-person perspective and multiplayer only. We must of course expect aggressive monetization, as is the case with Call of Duty Mobile or Fortnite. But it’s nice to have a little freshness in the mobile shooter market.
- Price: free / Ads: no / In-app purchases: yes, a lot / Account: required / French language: yes
