The free applications available to a Verizon Wireless customer depends on which mobile operating system that the Verizon device uses. Thousands of free apps are available in the Google Play Store for Android, the iTunes App Store for iPhones and the Windows Phone App Store for Windows Phone devices.
Popular free apps for entertainment include those for streaming video services such as Netflix and Hulu Plus, music streaming services such as Pandora Radio and Spotify, and games such as "Clash of Clans," "World of Tanks Blitz" and "SimCity BuildIt." Some free apps may require in-app purchases to access certain features, settings and cosmetic items, such as clothing or hats in games.
Verizon has a series of free apps that are relevant to customers available on leading mobile platforms, including Blackberry. Verizon Messages allows subscribers to check their text and multimedia messages on any device with Verizon Messages installed by logging in to the associated Verizon account. Verizon Cloud is a cloud storage app that allows users to store photos, videos, documents and other files online. Verizon Support & Protection is a virus and malware protection suite that notifies users of dangerous websites and identity theft attempts.
Apps may require a version of an operating system higher than the one installed on a device and are unavailable. Accordingly, check that the device has the latest system updates installed for the best compatibility results.
