Now that Google has decided to re-brand the Android Market and its other stores as Google Play
, the Mountain View based tech giant seeks to promote the change by offering a sale on 25 popular apps
. The price of these apps, mostly games, are now just 49 cents and includes TuneIn Radio Pro, an app that allows you to find radio stations anywhere based on genre and you can even record what you are listening to. Another app offered by Google for 49 cents is Endomondo Sports Tracker which keeps track of your fitness plan and acts like a virtual coach. What is interesting about the latter app is that RIM is giving it away for free with their own App World promotion. Does that mean that Google is 49 cents less generous
than RIM is?
Among the games that are now available at 49 cents
are EA's Dead Space and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, N.O.V.A. 2 from Gameloft, Full Fat's NFL Flick Quarterback, and Asphalt 6 : Adrenaline from GameLoft. For those who like to dabble with third party virtual QWERTY keyboards, the SwiftKey X Keyboard is also 49 cents. For a complete list of apps on sale, visit the sourcelink.
