The Top 10 Android Apps Are Now $0.10 Each

Posted by Alan at 5:02 PM on December 6, 2011

The Android Market has officially exceeded 10 billion downloads.  Yes, you read that correctly.  That’s a whole lot of Angry Birds.  That’s not bad for a store that opened October 22, 2008, and had only 1 billion downloads just over a year ago in August of 2010.

To celebrate hitting the 10 billion download mark Google has announced a sale.  The top 10 most popular apps in the Android Market are all on sale right now for $0.10 each, and that includes some great games and other types of apps.  The list includes favorites like SoundHound, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD, Minecraft, Swiftkey X Keyboard, SketchBook Mobile, Paper Camera, and more.

Not surprisingly, the the deal is on for 10 days.  If you live in the U.K. then don’t worry, the deal is on for you as well.  The apps are going 10 pence across the Atlantic.  You can check it out here.

    Thanks to Alan for writing this, and to Todd for putting it in his show links.

    I would have otherwise not heard about this. I just bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and this gave me the opportunity to load up with a bunch of nice and almost free apps.

    Although the list I got was not the same as the list you show in the article. Perhaps it changes daily? Don’t know, but yesterday night and this morning, my list was the same.

    And yes, it does change daily. And I am still downloading 10 cent apps like crazy!!!

    I’ve downloaded 25 apps for a total cost of $2.51 (someone charged me 1 cent of tax, weird).
