Google Play celebrates first birthday with plenty of deals

Happy birthday, Google Play! The content marketplace for Android turns one today, and of course Google is celebrating with all sorts of deals. Aside from discounted and free music, apps such as Yumby Smash and Clouds & Sheep have been updated with exclusive content just for this monuments occasion. Some apps are even offering special in-app deals, such as Fancy providing a free $15 gift card.

Google Play was a sweeping rebrand of the Android Market that took place last year, but it feels like it has been around forever. Questionable at first, Google’s new content strategy has helped to establish the Play Store as one of the leading sources of apps, games, music, movies, and more. So let’s all celebrate with some great deals!

      Curious how this is gonna do anything, let’s get free cable too!!!

      Will never work the telecoms as businesses have a right to offer limited data we have a “free market” if we as a country want to change this tell them with your wallet. If everyone would wake up and jump ship to tmoble and sprint then Verizon and at&t would have no choice but to bring back unlimited data to retain their customers. I do realize not everyone can due to the fact that they might be the only carriers in some areas, but everyone in larger city’s and towns are able let their voices be herd.

      Huh? You pay for a certain amount of data on some carriers.
      Others you pay to use so much data at a certain speed before it slows down (Still unlimited)

      I don’t really see what the problem is.

      • chuckles87

        And you pat some to get unlimited data (sprint, T-Mobile)

        • No_Nickname90

          You lost me. =./
          I don’t understand your metaphor. I have an idea, but it doesn’t make sense. LoL!!

          • chuckles87

            Sorry auto correct I meant and you pay some for unlimited data

    Of course they give you the Breaking Bad pilot free. Once you watch it, you’ll end up pounding through the next 2 seasons in a day.

  • EasyEEE
