Android marketplace offers premium apps for 10 cents:
In a move seen to celebrate the milestone of 10 billion application downloads. The Android marketplace is offering 10 premium applications for only 10 cents (or 10 pence in the UK) each day for a period up to Christmas.
They will be offering this for the festive period and will change the apps on offer every day.
Today’s offerings include:
- SwiftKey X Keyboard
- Endomondo Sports Tracker
- Great Little War Game
- Fieldrunners HD
- SketchBook Mobile
- Minecraft – Pocket Edition
- Asphalt 6
- Paper Camera
- Color & Draw for kids
With app downloads expected to reach around 18 million in 2012 according to research firm Ovum, this will be an increase from around 7 billion in 2010, and the 2012 figure will be made up of some 8 or so billion Android applications.
Of course this could be seen as a cynical ploy to make sure that as many people as possible have registered their debit or credit card details with the big G, so they can entice you to spend a little more bit by bit. But I say when an offer is around and it looks good, sod it, and grab it now!
So what premium Android applications are you hoping will be offered in this promotional give away?Anthony Munns
