Have you ever wanted an app but the price was a little too high? Or are you one of those people who refuse to spend money on any apps? Well this news is for you. I have gathered information concerning offers for free paid apps and sale apps below:
Google’s Play Store (formally Android Market) is where android users normally go to purchase their apps. Google only has offers once in a while but the app developers have their own promotions. There is an app in the Play Store called AppSales which scans the store for any paid apps that may have went on sale or that is temporarily free.
The Amazon AppStore is another store where developers can sell their Android apps. Amazon has a “Free app of the Day” promotion that has been going on for well over a year. You must have a credit card attached to the store to make purchases. If you purchase a free app, you will get a bill for $0. The Kindle Fire has this store pre-loaded, but most android phones can side-load* it.
- go to your phone and press settings.
- press applications.
- select “Unknown Sources.” (do not do this for anything unless you know it is safe)
- download and install the Amazon Appstore.
- (newer devices will find “Unknown Sources” in settings under Security).
I found an app for my Galaxy Nexus for free that I purchased for $20 on my Ipad! Be aware that if you delete Amazon Appstore, the apps will remain on your phone but won’t work (it can be downloaded again). I fully support developers and don’t mind spending money for apps so I encourage you to do the same but i know everyone loves free stuff. Enjoy!
