A few hours before its annual event, I/O conference, it seems that Google has went ahead and is gradually pushing an update to the Google Play Store. If the update is not being pushed to your device yet, you might want to grab the updated version of the Google Play store APK from the source below.
Amazon may still be behind Google Play in terms of content, but over the weekend the Amazon Appstore made the jump to China. Yup, Amazon has beaten Google to the punch as they’ll be the first to offer paid Android apps in China.
Google Play turned 1 year old this week, and to celebrate they’ve decided to throw a Google Play Birthday Sale. The sale will last all week and we’re going to take a look at some of the offerings that have been announced so far.
Knock off games or poor ports have always been an issue on Google Play. Over time I assumed it would get better, but as someone who scours the play store and Appbrain daily I feel like I can honestly say it hasn’t improved much. What’s brought me to this earth shattering conclusion? A little game called Carrot Fantasy that pirates have flocked around over the past week.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock you already know about the Nexus 4 and how quickly it sold out. If you live in the U.S. you’re in luck as the Nexus 4 will go back on sale today at Noon PST.
Thanksgiving has come and gone, but Black Friday’s here and so are the deals. Google Play decided to get in on the action with the Google Play Cyber Weekend Sale which has a bit of everything from movies and music to books and games.
We’re going to take a look at the movie section of the sale first which includes quite a few movies for $2.99. You can pick up Jaws, Ray, Dr. Suess’How the Grinch stole Christmas, Big Lebowski, Pride & Prejudice, Scarface, Field of Dreams, Fletch, Changeling, Serenity, Out of Africa, Carlito’s Way, The Jackal, Riddick, Les Misreables, Fire Proof, and Faith like Potatoes.
I’m old school and not one to read books that aren’t made out of paper (sorry trees), but there seem to be some good deals if you enjoy mobile books. Some of the cheaper titles I noticed were The Hobbit, Essays in Science, Endless Love, The Great Santini, When We Were the Kennedys, and TekWar. There are close to 50 books in the sale, and the prices range from 3-10 dollars.
The TV section of the sale features 6 TV shows with Alphas, Eureka, Warehouse 13, House, Heroes, and Friday Night Lights. The prices vary on these as well and can run anywhere from $9.99 which is a deal to $24.99 which isn’t a deal at all to be honest. I love Friday Night Lights, but the TV end of the sale kind of sucks to be honest.
I’ve always enjoyed picking up some cheap albums during Google Play’s music sales and there are some great ones to grab this go round’. There are far too many to go through, but there are around 60 albums in all that range from $2.99 to $7.99. Some of the standouts for me were Frank Ocean, Maroon 5, 2chains, Blake Shelton, and The Darkness. Good selection and some great prices depending on what you’re looking for.
Last up we’ve got the games. There are no games on sale for a buck… only free games with sales on their In-app purchases or in-game upgrades, definitely nothing to write home about. Some of the games listed are Kingdoms & Lords, Pet Hotel, Pocket Legends, Eternity Warriors 2, Hellfire, and the Hobbit.
Google Play’s Cyber Weekend Sale is a bit of a mixed bag, but there are some great deals depending on what you’re looking for. I definitely plan on picking up some movies and albums, but am beyond disappointed with the games and the exclusion of apps. The prices are good through the weekend, and if you’re ready to pick up some digital deals you can hit the link below and head on over to Google Play.
Unless you reside under a rock you probably know that the Nexus 4 phone and Nexus 10 tablet make their debut today. Europe and Australia got to place their preorders last night (lucky them), but the wait is over for those of us in the United States as pre-orders are going live in less than 10 minutes.
For those of you unfamiliar with the company Yandex, they account for 60 percent of search engine web traffic in Russia, making it bigger than Google over there. Yandex aren’t just a search engine though, they are an advertising company, social network and a professional network, as well as being an e-commerce payment system and more.
A little over a month ago the popular iOS game Jetpack Joyride became available for Android devices. There was one small problem though, or a big problem depending on which country you live in. The game by Halfbrick Studios launched on the Amazon app store for Android which at the time was only available in the US. Since then, Amazon have launched their app store in a few more countries, specifically select European countries such as France, Germany and the UK. Other countries however are still without the Amazon app store which in turn meant that they could not download and play the addictive Jetpack Joyride

For a long time, iPhone users fought to make Adobe Flash become available on the iOS device. Their pleas however, were left unheard and it became one of the number one reasons why Android was thought to be better than iOS and was a fact used in many arguments about which mobile OS was actually better.
