Google’s 10p apps for today – Apparatus, The Sims 3, Pano and more

Google’s incredibly popular 10p apps promotion continues into the weekend, with another batch of apps added to the super-discount scheme today. While all of yesterday’s cheap apps are still available for 10p, there’s already another batch of apps listed at the lower price for today.

Today’s offers include more big name gaming titles like The Sims 3, Asphalt 6, Age of Zombies and the excellent physics puzzler Apparatus. Here are the ten 10p discount apps troubling your credit card today…

Apparatus
The Sims 3
SlideIt Keyboard
Snowfall Live Wallpaper
Asphalt 6 (possible repeat)
Season Zen HD
Pano
Drop7
Age of Zombies
Kids Connect The Dots

As with yesterday’s collection, if you aren’t seeing the 10p price try searching for the apps by name in the Android Market. Seems to pull up the new prices a bit earlier by doing it that way.

Anyone have any horror stories about being charged a £6.99 credit card transaction fee by their bank for each 10p purchase, yet?

        A man who knows more about how this works than me assured me that it’s quite unlikely to happen these days, as we’re now billed in our local currency – so no conversion fees should be applied.

  3. I dunno if this promotion is having the desired effect or not.

    I’d already registered with Google Checkout before Android was a thing and I’ve since bought some stuff on the Android Market. These 10p deals are no-brainers for me. I spend 50p buying a packet of crisps out of the machine at work. I bought Game Dev Story and it’s already eaten about three hours of my free time. I started shouting at my Vega, demanding better work on sound or somebody was going to get fired. That thing is Tyrant Tycoon.

    I’m less sure people will register and start paying for stuff. If it works then good, but that doesn’t mean Google has won my heart or mind. They still need to do an awful lot with their Market. Not least, password protecting purchases so I can actually give an Android device to a kid and not worry I’m going to have a coronary when I get my statement.

    Also, Amazon you need to look at this too with your Kindle products. I’d buy three Fires but not until Amazon sort that out.

      The Android Market has optional pin protection to stop unauthorised purchases so you can quite happily give the phone to a kid to play with. The only thing it won’t stop are naughty apps with in-app purchase. Same issue on iOS devices too, the Smurfs game comes to mind.

      LOL, did you really just complain that your netbook running a smartphone OS didn’t work properly…

      And Android Market can be pin protected.

    • Sony Xperia Z2 review

      This is Sony’s latest go at producing a high-spec Android flagship model, with the Xperia Z2 ticking every one of 2014’s must-have tech bullet points. It has a large 5.2-inch 1080p display. It has the hot new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset inside. It has a massive 3GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. It’s […]

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…

    • HTC One V review

      The HTC One V is HTC’s third entry in its high-profile new HTC One range, offering a smaller 3.7″ display running on a single-core 1GHz processor.

      The HTC One S is the piggy in the middle of HTC’s 2012 line-up, offering a 4.3″ AMOLED display inside a very slim and stylish aluminium chassis.
