We just can't get enough of our mobile apps. In 2017 we downloaded 178 billion apps to our phones, an eye-opening  figure that's only expected to grow, reaching more than 250 billion by 2022.

With so much choice, it's easy to see how mistakes are made, and we end up paying for an app we might never use. Thankfully, some of the best apps now come with free demos, so we can try before we buy. Everyone likes to try something for free, right?

Here's our guide to the top five apps you can download to your phone right now and start using for free. Sure, you might need to pay after a free trial, or it might cost you a little bit to enjoy an advert-free or premium feature version, but if you like the demo, at least you can make an informed choice.

1. Netflix


It's thought the on-demand streaming service Netflix now has more than 150 million subscribers. That's a lot of people viewing their favourite TV shows, including made-for-Netflix epics like Narcos, and films from the comfort of their own home, or on their mobile phone. It's probably the best way to make your commute to and from work go quickly; watching something cool on the bus or the train.

Netflix is, of course, a paid-for platform. A monthly fee of as little as £5.99 will get you enjoying everything the site has to offer, and believe us there is a seemingly endless amount of content to view.

But the cool thing is, and the reason why Netflix makes our top five demo apps to download is that you get a free month trial. That's right; you can try Netflix out on your mobile before committing to joining those 150 million subscribers. We're fairly sure you'll want to sign up after the month is over, but enjoy the demo version while you can anyway.

2. Spotify


You must have heard of Spotify, the digital music streaming service that gives you instant access to millions of songs from just about every artist in the world (even Taylor Swift has now signed up). The service is the best musical thing to come out of Sweden since ABBA, and there's every reason to try it for free.

Download the app to your phone, and you'll see Spotify is a freemium service. That means you can demo the app for as long as you like without paying a cent. While that's all well and good, you will have to put up with one or two adverts.

However, once you've tried it out, you'll likely be more than happy to sign up for the money version. There's no ads, a better audio quality, and you're not forced to listen in shuffle mode - in other words, you can listen to any song you want when you want to.

3. Trading Platforms


One benefit of the digital revolution has been the ability for people to take better control of their finances, whether that be through mobile apps for your bank, allowing you to keep track of all your spending, balances and direct debits, to the ability to make payments digitally via app services like PayPal.

It's also caused an explosion in the number of people taking part in financial trading. Once the domain of suited brokers in Wall Street or the City of London Stock Exchange, now any of us can trade in stocks, shares, commodities and foreign currencies using the new breed of trading platforms.

All decent platforms have good app versions from which you can trade. Choose one with a good demo trading app version, for two reasons: firstly you get to see if you like the features the broker offers, and secondly, you get used to trading with "play money" simply by using a demo account on your mobile before having to commit to your own hard-earned cash.

4. Investing spare change and managing pensions


While trading apps are ideal for those who like to speculate to accumulate, many people prefer to put their money into safe havens like saving plans and pensions. And there are plenty of apps you can demo to find the most suitable for you.

Acorns, for example, is a neat app that allows you to add your spare change every day. The idea is that your funds are automatically invested and that one day little acorns grow into giant oak trees! Similarly, you can simplify your pension plans by putting various pensions (many people now have more than one) and combining them into one with an app like PensionBee.

With PensionBee you can get a real-time quote of your pension fund amount, and make a cash withdrawal should the need arise.

5. Fitness tracking apps


There are bags of apps to help you keep track of your training programs. Just about all of these are free - but you will be expected to pay for extra goodies.

With Strava, runners and cyclists track their activity and get feedback such as route, distance, speed, heart rate analysis (when used with a chest strap), climbing and more. It's also sparked a cult following of people exercising on routes to make a pretty picture on the map, called Strava art.

Meanwhile, MyFitnessPal helps you lose weight. It monitors your calory intake and sets it against your daily goal. You can also integrate your workouts, so the app knows if you have done enough exercise to increase your calorie intake for the day!

Wellbeing is not just about diet and exercise - getting a good night's sleep is fundamental. Try Sleep Cycle, which monitors your sleep patterns and teaches you how to sleep better. It's free with the option of in-app purchases. Other apps to try include StepJockey and Pacer Pedometer and Weight Loss Coach.

Enjoy our demo apps - if you end up downloading too many you might find your phone slows down as more memory is used. We show you here how to free up space on your Android.

Online betting has become popular over the last decade or so, which has seen a whole new generation of punters enjoying the convenience it offers. looks at what you get when you sign up to betting apps and looks at a few trusted providers for those who want to give online betting a try.

When you wanted to place a bet in the past, you would have gone to your local high street bookmakers and done the deed in person. Now for many people, this was actually an intimidating process which put some folks off, especially women and those from the younger generations. When bookies went digital and started trading, online more punters came along and found that the process was much easier and something that could be done from home with little fuss.

If you look in your app store, you will find hundreds of apps offering betting, and it is important that you choose one with a good reputation.

You can use your account to bet or play, and the app should give you the option to add more money to your account, places your bets and claim any winnings as per their withdrawal policy. Checking you understand the policies offered is also important before you sign up and this will include things like new player bonus codes which give you rewards in the form of free play for becoming a new customer. These are well worth having so do take advantage of them, just be sure to read the terms and conditions and small print before you sign up for anything. Once you are signed up, you can use the online site or the mobile app and switch between the two to suit yourself.
