Yay! Thanks for the thread. I grabbed angry birds space and asphalt. Also thinking of grabbing the office app even though I have no use for it...yet. Here's to hoping they make a banner later today with all the sale apps listed.

^_^ We're all looking forward to some official information about the sale. That said since developers/publishers have control over their pricing on the Play Store, some developers jump in with "me too" sale pricing if they did not make it into the official sale.

I wish they had an add to cart or even just a buy all feature. It's kind of annoying to have to do a bunch of little 25 cent charges over and over again and I'm sure they must get charged a processing fee on each one.

Thanks Computersnacks!

I was looking into the difference between Angry Birds Space - HD versus Premium. The premium version is allegedly for phones, but the HD version doesn't look appreciably different. The free version looked perfectly fine on my Nexus 7.

Funny you mention that, last year with the .10 cent sale, I bought almost every title and my bank actually called me thinking they were fraudulent charges. I didn't know where to begin, but they put a note on my account. Here's to hoping they don't call again!

I know what you mean. I'm quite surprised that my credit union didn't fraud-flag all the $0.10 transactions. I would note that Amazon (with it's much more developed web-store) also requires cart-less every-item-is-a-transaction purchasing for digital downloads (including apps, games, & music).

Go buy Tasks now. It's a fairly simple tasks app that syncs with your Google Tasks. If everything had as nice an interface I'd be a happy man :)

(There's even a free w/ads version if you are opposed to paying for stuff)

I wish Amazon would PM this. I'm thinking about getting a Kindle Fire for my kids, and the Cat in the Ht would be great. I know I could ROOT it, but not sure I want to screw around with my kids tablet (if I get it).

Awesome, I'm so happy Symphony of Eternity is .25. I hope we see some of the other RPGs hit the .25 pricepoint. Eve of the Genesis was really fun for what it was.

Tasks for a quarter is a no brainer, as is Cat in the Hat. I wasn't sure my kid would be into "books" on the tablet but she loves em.

They have pm'ed some of the Google sales before but it does take them time to do that. Assuming this sale lasts for a few days keep an eye out on Amazon because they may end up price matching at some point.

Downloaded the trial for OfficeSuite 6 and bought it two minutes later. It might be the only office app that I hadn't tried in the past and it completely blows the others away for spreadsheet viewing on a phone. It's been a few months so I suppose the others could have caught up, but at 25 cents they're not going to beat it on price.

I have the four (or five?) major office suites for android (all from Amazon FAAD). OfficeSuite is an easy recommend at $0.25. IIRC they all have different strengths. My usual go-to is QuickOffice HD. Imo, it doesn't hurt to have multiple different ones to handle problem files.

QuickOffice was what I was using and probably has the nicest presentation, but I like the way that OfficeSuite handles files, especially spreadsheets, on my phone better.

I've actually got the Amazon AppStore frozen on my phone right now and only enable it when I want to spend a little while playing a game that I got from it. I don't like that I need to keep it installed (and let it run) at all times to use those apps.

That would be an awesome and applicable at 25 cents!

But how does it compare to just using Evernote

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

This google play stuff is for Android devices?
This is different than the Chrome Web Store for PC, right?

Bought most of the utilities and the one RPG. Sucks that I bought that granny game on Monday and Asphalt 7 a while ago

Thanks, OP! Most of the movies, books, and apps I can easily pass on, but OceanHD and OfficeSuite for $0.50? One or two of the books are probably worth snagging at that pricepoint too. I can't remember whether I've read Being and Nothingness before and I've been wanting to see the Cary Grant film version of Gentleman's Agreement, but it wouldn't hurt to read the book first. . . .

EDIT: Oh, crap, according to this post, they're changing the deals every day for the next five days. My wallet's in trouble! You know, the irony is that I just got a Nexus 7 a week ago for my birthday, I've just about finished setting it up, and I've blown through all but about a dollar of my $25 credit.
