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/
