Google Play reaches 25,000,000,000 app downloads, app discounts inbound
Google's app store, Google Play, formerly known as Android Market, popped into existence with only a handful of apps in tow, but look at it now! It's the second-largest app ecosystem in the mobile world with a gigantic selection of over 675,000 titles. Powering such a prosperous OS like Android, you can imagine that quite a few apps get downloaded from Google Play each day.

As a matter of fact, Google has just announced that the store has served a total of 25,000,000,000 (that's 25 billion!) app downloads to date! What's best for consumers is that in order to celebrate the occasion, Google will be offering select titles at a special price of only $0.25 during the following 5 days.

The apps and games in question will be ones of popular dev studios like Electronic Arts, Gameloft, Rovio, Full Fat and others. In addition, there will be special bundles for sale at discounted prices as well, including "25 movies you must own", "25 banned books", "25 albums that changed the world" and "25 top selling magazines" (that is, top selling on the Play Store).

The first discounted apps and content should appear later today.
