Free Apps and Tools to Improve your Gaming Experience

Today it’s easier than ever before to play your favorite games on the platform of your choice, from PC to console to mobile phone. But to get the most out of your games, it pays to add a few extras to your package that can improve performance or give you better access to the games you want. Happily, many of these add-ons are free and come in the form of downloadable apps, tools and software that are compatible with most devices and operating systems.


Steam is the ultimate modern gaming resource, and your first move should be to download the free app for your PC. The site’s vast online library contains pretty much every video game you could want to play, from premium titles to quirky independent releases that you won’t find anywhere else. There are plenty of free-to-play games alongside options for every price bracket. Steam is also a social platform that gamers use to chat, compare notes, or find people to play alongside.

Casino games

Most online casino games are free to play and many also offer generous welcome bonuses to encourage you to sign up. To find the best offers, try this Welcome Bonus Search that catalogues the different types available, from free spins to bet matching.

Game booster

There are many different game booster apps that you can download for free to automatically optimize your device’s settings for gaming purposes. One of the most popular is the Razor Cortex Game Booster which defrags your system, frees up resources, and adjusts parameters for the duration of your session. Once you finish playing, normal settings are restored.

MSI Afterburner

This handy download will let you overclock your PC’s graphics processing unit (GPU) to get the most out of any MSI, AMO or Nvidia graphics card. The app scans and monitors your computer as it goes to prevent burnout even as it adjusts voltage settings, clock speed and RAM.


Gaming can be a social activity as much as solitary entertainment, and if you’re playing online with people from around the world the best way to keep in touch is on Discord. Although many different chat and messaging apps are available, Discord has become the favorite one for gamers, thanks to its user-friendly design, free sign-up, and the fact that it can also be accessed via any internet browser.


This live streaming platform is best known as the home of video game streaming. It can also be used to manage game add-ons, modifications, and overlays, and has social features too. If you fancy recording your own gaming sessions to share later, the best free software is OBS Studio which records your screen and both internal and external audio. You can add your own commentary using a headset or microphone.

These are just a few of the free apps, tools, and software you can use to improve your gaming experience. When downloading anything onto your computer or device, be sure that it comes from a trustworthy source, and make certain that you have up-to-date anti-virus protection running as well.
