forgot to get those games from amazon yesterday :(

i just bought galaxy s2

is there a way to just get the license for free games and not download it right away?

You can "purchase" the apps from the amazon website and download them later from you downloads list.


Let me tell you two useful pieces of information...

But...only if you already have an android device (any android device) registered to your account. Once you've ordered it, you can download it to any compatible device in the future, but if you don't have any registered to your account, it won't allow you to buy anything. Same is true in both Amazon app store and Google Play store.

Akinator is freaking crazy! Have any of you been able to beat it before?

Yes, but it depends on how much in-depth knowledge you know about the character. Some characters it will confuse for other similar characters and the detail for all the databse entries are not the same.

Hope this is OK to ask here, hopefully it doesn't come up too too much.

 

Planning on moving from Windows Phone to Android.  I really enjoy mobile gaming, so how are the games and deals on the Android platform.  Any sort of "weekly deals" or specials?  I know Amazon seems to partner with the Google Play store from time to time and offer some good deals.

 

Thanks in advance.

I haven't checked out the Windows Phone store so I can't compare them.

 

The Amazon app store is separate from the Google Play store, they don't partner up. Amazon has some good sales and offers a free app every day as well as other freebies on occasion. Most are bad, some are good. You can download an Android emulator right now called BlueStacks and put both the Google Play and Amazon App Store on it if you want to take advantage of any sales and specials between now and when you get your phone. 

 

Google does sales once in awhile, but great deals organized by them are somewhat far between. Unfortunately they don't allow apps to go free, but developers have ways around that to offer freebies, usually in the form of unlock codes or putting up free versions of their apps temporarily.

 

There are also a couple of apps that track sales and freebies. There's AppSales, App of the Day (UK only I believe, but you can download the .apk and manually put it on your phone), and AppGratis which is like App of the Day but for your phone. The first will keep you alerted to sales. The other two do free daily apps, often through the use of a code.

 

There's also the Humble Android and Mobile Bundles. There's one going on right now. You may want to pay a small amount before Wednesday to try and get the bonuses (they should unlock for everyone this time). You can probably avoid BTA right now. Carmageddon has been for 2 or 3 times already. https://www.humblebundle.com/

Amazon has its own app store (separate from Google) with lots of sales and a free app every day:

 

http://www.amazon.co...node=2350149011

 

Google Play has some really good sales every now and then.

 

Humble Bundle and other "indie" bundles often have Android game bundles for really low prices. In fact, there's one running right now:

Lots of decent free apps on Google play but be choosy (and check app permissions).

I have it on my RSS reader.  Very useful, since it is not always easy to see what is on sale on Google play.  Amazon is on my bad side since most (all?) there apps require an internet connection all the time.

They have at least one free app a day, usually more than one. It's far more than the Google Play store has.

I think I figured out what happens.  It needs an internet connection at least once when you start up the app, otherwise it says "needs a connection"  I installed probably 50 apps without opening them.  Then tried to open them without wifi, which gives the error.  You need to open the app at least once with wifi to get it to work without it.  I just tried it with one app right now.

Though in the thread above it sounds like for some other people they need to refresh the token more often.

An app on sale for free is still on sale. And I've gotten some great apps from that. What's your beef with Amazon? Do you work for one of their competitors?

Just a bit of advice: don't try to reason with slidecage. Many have tried, none have succeeded, and his formatting will melt your brain should he get going. I don't want to go too much into it, but just know it's futile on your part no matter how the facts add up, trust me :headache:

Free app of the day. So you know your going to get it  free everyday.  Something that comes every day  is not a sale  (at least not to me)

 

never knew of any store that can have one item on sale and  call it a  sale

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

It made mine explode.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

One question, people have said that the Android on Amazon and Google Play are different, but everything bought on either store should run on a new Android device, right?

If an app is compatible with the device it won't matter which store you buy from. The only difference between the two is how updates are handled and pricing. If you have a device tied to either your Google or Amazon account, you can go to the store page on either Google Play or Amazon and it will tell you if it's compatible/incompatible, though on occasion certain devices that can run the apps fine are still excluded for no apparent reason.

 

It's a bit confusing at first, but once you get the gist of it it's not so bad, and you get all the other benefits of Android for it ^_^

Pretty much. Google won't let you install an app if the developer hasn't marked it as compatible for your device.

I just saw the preview for that.  You might want to check out WidgetLocker.  It doesn't come with a set of configurable widget like HD Widgets, but it does come with a slew of predefined widgets AND you can use ANY widget by ANY other app.
