Day 8 in Google’s 10 cent, “10 Billion” app promo brings FlightTrack, HD Widgets


We’re now into day 8 of Google’s “10 billion” app promo, this has seen various apps drop to a dime, mostly games. Day 1-4 were solid, but over the past few days we’ve seen some repeats and the popular title fade – however, at 10 cents it’s a great deal and good on Google for the promo. Another change on Day 8 is the main banner in the Market. It’s changed from “10 days of offers, Top premium apps, 10c per app”, to “10 days of offers, Top premium apps, 90% off”. Here’s the list for Day 8:

- FlightTrack
- Instant Heart Rate – Pro
- Where’s My Water?
- Train Conductor 2: USA
- HD Widgets

Plus, apparently Sketchbook Mobile, Flick Golf, Shazam Encore, Slide IT Keyboard, Christmas HD have all repeated again.

    70 unique apps for $7 (not including 10 repeats) is still a much better deal than BlackBerry’s literal dozen of free apps.

  • Tim Ryeland

    They started charging tax (1 cent) on the purchases today… Interesting.

    I tried the Instant Heart Rate Pro, it actually works. You hold your finger to the phone’s camera and it measures your heart rate.

    I’m actually hoping Asphalt 6 HD repeats. Been playing the demo on my sister’s Optimus LTE..good god its beautiful and fun.

    Why don’t they give the deal on FlightTrack Pro?
    We have to pay 10 cents for FlightTrack and if I want the full featured App I have to pay $5.

    How much was FlightTrack originally? Or was it free but they now charge 10 cents?

    • Raj from from da Garage

      The regular version of FlightTrack was also $4.99…they absolutely should have made the pro version also for .10 the catch being you cant use the pro features unless the regular normal version of the app is installed.

    doh! the $0.10 apps are now $0.11!!!! meh, still worth it!

    thanks again google!

    so happy i didn’t pay full price for “where’s my water”, now we just need: cut the rope, burn the rope, world of goo, shadowgun and madden 12 to go for $0.11 and this is automatically the greatest deal of all time

    Wow, this thing is really fizzling out. I was very excited the first 2-3 days but by now with the quality of apps declining and the increasing repeats, I almost don’t care anymore.

    @MapleHamwhich

    Fizzling out? This has been a phenomenal deal and there are still apps that I am going to buy today. Sure there are repeats but the stuff I have bought in the past 7 days has been great and I’ve been using them (and playing them) quite a bit.

    Sorry to hear that you think this is a garbage promotion now. Guess the apps you have don’t do anything for you or maybe you regret spending the couple of dollars – maybe you might enjoy AppStore over at iTunes more or perhaps some Occupy protest area as you seem quite hard done by.

    Maybe saving the best for last?

    Earth and Legend please :)

    There’s a wide variety of people who use Android phones for a wide variety of purposes. Unfortunately, not everyone uses their phone the same way you do .

    Kids apps? Hell yeah. I have 2 kids and have bought them all for my phones and tablets.

    Games? Absolutely. Don’t play them all the time but am happy to have options on the phone to goof around with.

    Productivity Apps: You betcha. I’d take even more at the 10 cent deal but am happy with what I got.

    @Omgwtfbbq as Raj pointed out, you still need FlightTrack in order to get FlightTrack Pro. Pro is not a stand alone apparently, it’s an add-on. So if Mobiata allowed both to be $0.10 then you’d get a $10 app for $0.20 and that’s a huge loss. Paying $5.10 for a $10 app (FlightTrack + FlightTrack Pro) isn’t bad.

    Both FlightTrack and FlightTrack Pro are ~$5/each normally.
