Day 6 of Google's 10 cent giveaway: Backbreaker, Jenga and more

Day 6 of Google's 10 cent giveaway: Backbreaker, Jenga and more
Day 6 of Google's 10 cent apps to celebrate 10 billion app downloads has come, and we've got the list of newly discounted apps. There are a couple apps which have been featured on previous days, so you can take that as another chance to get something good or not. The discount celebration has been successful in not only bringing quality apps to users very cheap, but in it's peripheral agendas of raising the profile of older apps, and getting more users to sign up for Google Wallet/Checkout.

Today is day 6, and it brings these 10 apps down to just 10 cents:


And, if you missed anything from the past few days: 

Google Android Market 10 cent app promo day #1 (the apps are no longer discounted),
Google Android Market 10 cent app promo day #2 (the apps are no longer discounted),
Google Android Market 10 cent app promo day #3 (the apps are no longer discounted),
Google Android Market 10 cent app promo day #4 (the apps are no longer discounted),
Google Android Market 10 cent app promo day #5 (the discount still appears at the time of this writing)

The perfect time to download Backstab and my phone doesn't support it. It's disappointing. :(

Mine also! I read reviews of people with a GS2 but yet somehow it doesn't support the Skyrocket? Weird.

1) Find friend with compatible phone 2) Log into Market app with their phone 3) Go to market.android.com and buy Backstab 4) Wait 15 mins for return period to time out 5) Uninstall it from their phone Your account has "purchased" Backstab and can re-download it when you get a phone that is compatible

I wouldn't say that's a post on how to scam. He's encouraging the guy to purchase an app. Caanon is only providing a work around on how to do so since at this time his phone won't enable him to purchase it.

if thats true, and I'm just misunderstanding the post then it should say "how to buy an app while living in a country that is unsupported by the app market" (do they even still exist anymore?) 1) have a buddy in the US log into the market on their phone using your credentials. 2) buy games, wait out time period, uninstall 3) log back in on your phone in unsupported country, and redownload game. That is still getting around a block though that is there for some reason.. probably licencing with the country.

I didn't see him mention anything about the country he was in, am I missing anything? It looks like one person said the game wasn't compatible for their phone- Caanon was explaining he can still get it at the 10 cents price by downloading to a compatible phone while on his google account, so the game will remain tied to his account and ready to download if he gets his own compatible phone in the future. I don't think the process he explained is a scam.

It's not a scam. Remixfa misunderstood his post. It is a simple way to buy the app on his account so he can use it when he buys a new compatible phone.

The last sentence shoulda explained it clearly... :) remixfa....I have a Droid X1 that Backstab is compatible for...but not for my RAZR. Go figure...This work around really does sound legit. And I will use it now.....so thanks Caanon (I have my DX1 connected to Wifi. So I can still use my unactivated phones. I will probably wind up with 10 backup Android phones...lol) Now...remixfa.....I think what you might have done is posted a way to scam the system...lol

My GS1 can download it also, but my Skyrocket is incompatible. So I bought it and had it download to my Captivate. When the Skyrocket IS supported, I'll have the game. Even though my Captivate no longer is connected with a SIM card to the AT&T network, I can still use it perfectly on WiFi to download anything from the market.

What version of the GS2 do you have? My Skyrocket works with it fine.

NFL rivals was for sale one of this days. It worked on the SGS2. I don't know if you can install Backbreaker, but if there's a way, it is on XDA. Take a look on the GSII forum, it has a huge dev community.
