We’re here, day 10, for some reason the app market at the time of writing online says day 9, so it’s a double day for the moment. In the meantime the Day 10 specials are already available on phones so we’re rolling the news out and I’ll update as needed for games that might pop in later in the day.
It’s a big bang closing event with Sentinel, Heavy Gunner and so many other games helping highlight the potential of 3D gaming on the Android platform. Many still have the idea of simple 2D gaming but programmers have already gone to the next level. Also Camera ZOOM FX and Star Chart are probably two of my favorites. There’s a lot of winners to pick from on the final day and Google made sure to end the sale on a high note. With that said jump in and get picking away on this day 10 sale!
Normally I’m not this excited about sales, but seriously… 10 cents. If there’s a chance to promote and take part in it then I’m going to.
Today we have a few returning guests but not as many as I anticipated, a total of 11 apps are in the fray for download.
We had SlideIT yesterday with their keyboard app and today we get the counter to that with SwiftKey, both are solid apps out there but it might come to user preference in that situation. MX Moto comes off as an Excite Bike type racer and I haven’t exactly been moved on the other titles so I’m just testing out Collapse! today until something else grabs my interest.
Shop away while you still have time, tomorrow is the end of the sale and the end of the party on Day 10. Unless Google does something else crazy leading into Christmas itself.
Wanted to call it yesterday but today helps at least confirm it, we’re seeing a huge visit of top products from the start of the sale. Today SketchBook Mobile, Shazam, Flick Golf and more return. Check out the full list and it might be time to get those hopes up for last chances at big items.
There is a slight shift, the Color & Draw for kids is a tablet version of the app released earlier, no other shifts just cleaner visuals for larger screens. Everyone should keep fingers crossed while hoping for Minecraft and possibly even Sims 3 to make a return in the final days. I’ll finally be picking up Flick Golf, the response seems good and even Train Conductor 2: USA. See you guys tomorrow with more info from Day 9
Repeats are starting to come up again, will we see Minecraft again before the final day for those who missed out? We’ll just have to find out!
SoundHound is back which is a good second chance offer, also it means good things for a popular blowout on day 10. The offerings are a little tame compared to the past days of Sims and NFS but there are some good potential picks. Blackberry fans will no doubt enjoy Block Breaker 3 Unlimited coming into the 10 cent offerings, it’s a simple but addictive game with some spruced up visuals.
Keep in mind even some of the simpler titles like Block Breaker are a bit picky for compatibility, the Rhyme failed the compatibility check taking it out of the running. Chances are I’ll be picking up SoundHound and SUPER KO BOXING! 2 and calling it a day.
Seriously this is madness but they’re managing to trump each day with new goods still that really do hit all audiences. Here’s the list from today.
Luckily I held off on posting right away, when the change hit, BackStab HD wasn’t part of the list, it joins as a sword fighting adventure in the days of early England and the Royal Navy. It’s also one of the few titles that even recent phones might have difficulty running the game as it seems limited to the absolute top of the current generation. If you’re adventurous you might be able to work around the requirements of this game.
Selections today are few, SimCity, Jenga and possibly Great Little War Game are on the selections. After the flood of racing games so far, Raging Thunder just doesn’t seem that alluring although it does get praise for control and gameplay. Endomondo Pro is solid if you’re on a tighter regimen too.
Day 5 continues and we get a bit of a warning, last night we got a last minute slap that EA put Need For Speed: Shift on sale at the end of the night for 10 cents as well. Anything seems to go in this wild event so keep your eyes locked on the market at night for last chance deals.
Pano is great but reviews say it requires a constant data connection for it to check the license validity, a problem when you go for scenic shots in tougher locations. Asphalt 6 was something I picked up in the Day 1 sale and don’t regret, it looks amazing but it’s a little difficult to get used to, touch steering is always a bit more difficult than axis controlled steering. The Sims 3 was a pick with no hesitation, I mean it’s The Sims and it’s portable which is just deadly in itself. Age of Zombies and Apparatus also look like great picks for the day.
The hits just keep coming, we also get a sign today that Google may allow for repeat performances of products. Paper Camera makes a second showing today in the lineup.
Check out the deals of the day for Android users:
Picked up Shazam, if I had a tablet I would most likely also grab Spirit HD and Sentinel 3: Homeworld, it might be a little too tight on my phone though. Baseball Superstars has some praise but also complaints of game data reset for new seasons.
Google will continue to roll out the goods all weekend so keep posted here for more deals.
They weren’t kidding about blowing out apps for 10 cents for 10 days, today we have an all new flood with a favorite for Custom ROM users on Android as well. ADWLauncher is one of the alternative foundations to home screen UI’s, add in its the premium EX version and it’s quite tempting to have around.
Didn’t have many picks or suggestions out of this, originally looked at Tetris but the reviews are poor around it. Might look into ADW and Homerun Battle though as picks for the day in this latest release. We’ll keep bringing you the sale lists as they come so check back tomorrow.

We’re in day 2, the consumers are restless for more and we’ve found the next lineup for you guys a little earlier than yesterday.
All of the above apps are 10 cents each and a new list will go live tomorrow with even more offers. Again I nabbed up Fruit Ninja, Reckless Racing and Star Chart for myself. I suggest getting in on it before losing this batch.
Android is becoming a force in the market, with so many phones coming in at all consumer levels the platform has managed to rapidly conquer the field. Google is celebrating that success though as they’ve closed 10,000,000,000 downloads in the market since the launch of the platform, most of those falling in 2011 as it made up almost 7 billion added downloads this year.
To celebrate they’re putting popular games and apps on sale for a limited time at 10 cents flat.
Keep an eye on the Android Market for any other deals that might pop up. For now this is the official list.
Personally I just nabbed, Minecraft, Asphalt 6, Paper Camera and SketchBook Mobile so I didn’t wait too long.
Update: The Android market notes this will last for 10 days, keep posted for the next update when it hits
