It seems Amazon has inspired quite a few folks as of late. After launching its free paid app of the day promo (it’s still running to this day), we’ve seen the likes of Getjar and others create similar options for getting premium Android apps for free. Another option by OnaDevice has come to light, though, and it does its bidding in an interesting way.
The app — simply named “Get Free Apps” — requires you to first buy the app or game in the Google Play Store, and it will then issue you a “refund” by sending a Paypal credit in the amount that you paid to download it. It’s a bit cumbersome, but should you happen to find something you like that no other app stores are offering it could be worth the trouble.
The first game being offered in this promotion is Gameloft’s Asphalt 7, and it will only last for another two days. After that expires, we’re promised that another free app will be offered. OnaDevice didn’t want to confirm whether the promotion would go on forever, but it did say that if the app couldn’t be offered for “free” then they would likely feature an app with a steep discount.
It’s not my cup of tea, honestly, but if this sounds like something you want to try out then all you need to do is download the Get Free Apps app and set your Paypal account up with it. Find that in the Google Play Store.
