Another day, another set of Google Play 25 cent apps
As we all know by now, Google has been celebrating hitting 25 billion app downloads by offering a new set of apps for just 25 cents each. We've had four days of apps, and today marks day five. Maybe it's just us, but today looks like the best one yet. Each day there have been maybe one or two really good deals in the app selection, but today there looks to be 5 solid apps that are around the "must by" recommendation. 

First off, if you're a gamer, there are 3 top notch games that you should grab if you haven't yet. 75 cents total will net you The Dark Knight Rises, Horn, and Great Big War Game. That's a solid haul. If you are running low on quarters, you still have the choice between two great action games, and one action/strategy game. Just be warned that Horn and Dark Knight are each almost 2GB, so you'll have to have free space available. 

But, the jewel of today's deals (in our opinion) is Nova Launcher Prime. Nova Launcher is one of, if not the best alternative launcher for Android 4.x, and the Prime version (read Pro version) unlocks options for organizing apps in your drawer, gestures, unread counts for messages, and a lot more transition effects. Definitely a solid buy. 

If you're looking for the deals, just head over to the Google Play Store

I love Google for doing this. There are some repeats from last time but I've already bought 7 new apps. Keep it up Google; your keeping me hooked.

Not really any good ones this time around.
Smart tools is completely impratical and Nova is easily beaten out by Apex.
I'm just waiting for Titanium Backup Pro to go on sale.

I'd say Nova and Apex are pretty even, so 25 cents for the pro version is a solid deal.

You're gonna have to wait a long time though, because I kind of doubt we'll see any root apps as part of a big time Google sale.

Idk, slim... Apex surely was laggy on my Gnex compared to Nova. I'm sure each phone reacts different though.

Apex is a dream on my Razr. It is really smooth.
I tried Nova and Holo but the (useful) features for me didn't compare.

I love Nova. I get 5 rows of icons now and two dock trays. Able to reduce the number of home screens I need from 6 to 5.

I've downloaded about 7euros of apps so far (i'm American living in Germany until next year), but i've noticed, it says last chance in the Apps Store... Question for Michael H., how long will this sale offer be lasting? Thanks in advance, "28 new apps and counting".
