Google Play Store Promotion: Apps for 25 cents

Google Play, the premier destination for Android apps, recently clocked 25 billion downloads and to celebrate this milestone the Mountain View company has announced a promotion on Tuesday. During the next 5 days, Google will offer a selection of apps for just 25 cents a piece.

Every day you’ll be able to choose from a collection of apps from some of the world’s top developers including Gameloft, Electronic Arts, Rovio, runtastic, Full Fat and more. And all for just 25 cents. We’ll also be offering some special collections like 25 movies you must own, 25 banned books, 25 albums that changed the world and our 25 top selling magazines, all at special prices.

The first batch of apps is live on the Play Store and can be bought outright for a quarter of a dollar. Most of these apps normally sell between $0.99 and $2.99. One app - Let's Create! Pottery – is priced at $4.99, while OfficeSuite Pro 6+ sells just 1 cent shy of a full $15. All these are available for $0.25.


Google is likely to offer a fresh collection of apps tomorrow and another round the next day and so on for the next 5 days, like they did during their 10 cents promotion organized to celebrate 10 billion downloads last December, although many apps were repeated during the last few days.

It took Google more than 3 years to score 10 billion downloads. The last 15 billion came in just 9 months. The next 25 billion will probably come sooner, but will the promotion get any more attractive?

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
