The service formerly known as the Android Market has reached a major milestone today. The 675,000 apps available through what is now known as Google Play have combined for over 25 billion downloads since 2008. I can remember the days when we got excited when 20,000 apps became available for Android smartphones. My, how far we’ve come.
To celebrate the occasion, Google is offering some great deals on popular apps, offering the wares of top developers such as Gameloft, Rovio, and Full Fat for a mere $.25 for the next five days. They folks at Google Play have also curated a few collections of content to commemorate the event, including 25 banned books and 25 albums that changed the world. Head over to Google Play throughout the day to check out all the special offers.
