I thought the fiick soccer was like the flick golf. BOY was i WRONG. Loang load times and siemi responsiveness made me get a refund.

Seriously , the load times were longer then 30 seconds. and longer then 10 when quitting out. That is unacceptable.

Meh. Too many repeats. I think the app quality has been decreasing each day.

Anyone who missed out on Game Dev Story should hope for a repeat of that. Or buy it at full price. Ok, thisis CAG - no one's going to do that. But the game is that good. The first time I fired it up to see what it was like, I played for 3 & 1/2 hrs. Then yesterday I played for about 6 hrs. Bout to go for hrs 3 & 4 today while watching RAW.

I do wonder if it'd be as fun playing thru a 2nd time around, though.

This. Also way too many games and not enough apps. Don't get me wrong cheap games are nice, but I didn't really buy my phone for games. At least everything is so cheap.

Asked for a .10 cent refund? I've seen it all.

Wish I took advantage of this earlier some good deals

It is - I've played it constantly since getting it for the .10 and I'm nearing the end of my 2nd playthrough. I'm thinking about buying their other games full price because Game Dev is so much fun. Easily the best phone game I've played.

I would kill (ok, not kill) to have a version of GDS on the Fire., I think it would be a perfect fit. Love it on my Evo, would love it more on my Fire.

Fire Note: tried side loading it, but without rooting+google dev stuff it won't recognize I've paid for it.

Seems like the apps are getting worse over time....day 8 is nothing compared to the first couple of days

Touchpad coming and I'd like to stock up on apps. Is there a way to purchase these then load them onto the Touchpad later? Thanks.

"Android Market" I thought HP has its own operating system called webos or something.


I'm planning on putting CM7 version of Android 2.3 onto the device: http://liliputing.co...indle-fire.html

I tried purchasing with my google account, but it won't let me because there are no devices associated with the account. Guess I'll have to wait till Friday :/ Hopefully there will still be some good deals left.

Any reason why these would be showing up at the $.10 price point on the website but not when I pull them up in the market on my phone?

::edit::
Wait, I think I read bmulligan's post wrong the first time. Is he saying that the website updates "on time," but the market on the phone only updates between 11 and 1?

6/10 repeats, Google is really tapering off with this promotion.

Sweet. Almost bought Train Conductor 2 yesterday, but decided to wait and see if it was part of the 10B promo. Glad I waited. Now I wonder if Fling will hit $0.10 before this is up.

Where's My Water? is a puzzle game sort of like Feed Me Oil or on a lesser note, Cut the Rope. Looks pretty good. Good day for those that missed the first couple of days.

Where's My Water is one of my favorite iOS games and for a dime it was a no-brainer double-dip.

Not sure if it's been priced this way for a long time or not, but Beautiful Widgets seems to be $.10 today too. I was always interested in trying it out since I've heard so many great reviews, but I didn't want to drop a few bucks to get it. $.10 is a solid impulse buy price.

Speaking of the fire I'm buying one next week. Is there a way to buy these apps for now and transfer over?

As for getting these apps on the Fire, there are a few options:

1. Amazon has been matching prices on most, if not all of these apps, in the Amazon App Store. If you already have a Fire, you can just buy them there. If you don't have a Fire yet, or any other Android device, you can find a guide on installing the SDK and get a virtual Android device linked with your Amazon account so that you can buy the apps.

2. You can also buy the apps through the Android Market via the web site, android phone, or even the SDK and then root your Kindle Fire to side-load the Market app onto it and install the apps from there (You'll also need to install an alternate home screen, such as Go Launcher EX).

3. Install the Cyanogenmod 7 firmware (mentioned above) on the Kindle Fire and then access the Market.

Note: The Android Market website won't let you purchase anything if you don't have a compatible device linked to your Google account. It also hides apps that it thinks are incompatible when you're view the market from a device. Even with my Fire rooted and the Market installed, it only shows me five of the twelve apps available today. The rest I had to buy on my HTC Incredible, even though I know some of them will work on the Kindle Fire. To transfer any of these over, I'll have to copy the APKs over and install them manually, I guess.

Thanks for the suggestion. Found the following. Might play around with this when I get home.

When Amazon first started doing the free app of the day, I set up the emulator, installed the app store, and linked it with my girlfriend's Amazon account. She didn't have a smart phone or tablet yet, but we knew she'd get one eventually. Worked like a charm and by the time she got her first Android device, she already had all the free apps up until that point.

The nice thing is that once you install the Amazon app store on the emulator and link your account, you can just buy the apps right off the Amazon web site without ever having to load the emulator again. Same goes for buying apps off the regular Android Market (though, unlike Amazon, Google will push any apps you purchase to the device and automatically install them the next time that device syncs with their servers).

Flick Golf is one of my favorites of the early offerings.

Golf with a very arcade feel.

I had to get a refund for some of the games as well since they just won't play on my touchpad.

Also, thanks for the HD Widgets response! Wife bought it and loves it. Might look into it for my touchpad.

Did anyone else notice the change in wording for the 10 Billion Promo? I don't remember exactly when, but I think it's been at least a day.

It used to read:
10 Days of Offers, Top Premium Apps, 10¢ Per App

Now, it reads:
10 Days of Offers, Top Premium Apps, 90% Off
Premium Apps for 10¢, 3 Days left


I'd wager that's why we've been getting so many repeats too, probably quite a few angry letters from app developers in regards to the 10¢ promo. I wonder if Android Market will have 90% off apps for the rest of the promotion period instead.

Edit:
Nevermind this, they changed the graphic again.

Wow, looks like nothing for me. Eh, after reading an endorsement for Where's My Water, I guess I'll take a chance for a dime.
