Google’s 10 cent deals – Day 8

android app giveaway

The previous seven days have showed us you guys love 10 cent apps, so we’re back with day 8 of Google’s 10 Billion Apps promo. Today we have three new apps for sale and the return of seven apps that were previously on sale. Read on for the full list.

People were complaining that the last couple days were dominated by games, so hopefully you’ll enjoy the functional apps that are on sale. As always, let us know which ones are your favorites in the comments below. Did you buy all 10 again?

[Thank you Gabriel for the tip!]

    I’m glad I upgraded to the Razr, because my OG was able to fit like 20 apps.. Because of this promo, I have over 70 on the Razr and she’s still beasting.

    Thanks googs and community!

    • Jöran Schlömer

      Thats the worst thing about my Desire. No space at all for Apps :/

      • Jöran Schlömer

        edit: Actually it is the only bad thing :D

        • mr 1338

          ;) have you tried activating Apps2SD for all apps possible?

          • Legend

            +1. I would have thought that was the obvious thing to do… ;)

          • Jöran Schlömer

            Of course I have.

  • zyphbear

    I was really interested in Where’s My Water after seeing it on “All About Android” (on, but it’s not compatible for my current device.

    I do wish they would have less duplicates when running this promo though.

    • faun

      Yeah, today’s the worst so far with 6 ones that have already been discounted. Can’t really complain though!

    • desean

      I was waiting for Where’s My Water for my SGS2. Glad I have waited :)

      Got HD Widgets & Instant Heart Rate too.

      • tmihai20

        I must say I am a little dissapointed by HD Widgets. I was looking for an alternative to Fancy Widgets Wigdets and I picked HD Widgets. It has less options and uglier graphics than Fancy Widgets Free. It crached twice already, the first time it blocked my phone. The developer needs to take a lot more. The second time it crashed while tapping on “Feedback” button (go figure!). I got Instant Heart Rate too.

    • Kimberli S. Kresge

      Why isnt the app wheres my water compatible with the ideapad k1?

  • psipher

    a little bit better this day….FlightTrack, HD Widgets, and Instant Heart Rate for me.

  • Diego Leon

    Is it just me, or does the sound of ten cents sounds better than free?

    • Varemenos

      nope, cause some people dont have credit cards attache to their google accounts.

      • itzxdjx

        charge to carrier!

    • mikepenz

      There are lot of alternative ways to get cheap virial credit cards like mywirecard or here in Austria cash4web

    • Adam Jones

      Anybody know how you get “Trusted Comment” on your comments?

  • Varemenos

    50% of them are from older days, but well at least HD Widgets will be of good use.

  • Bigtop77

    Aren’t these repeats?

  • Futureboy

    Finally, a list that isn’t mostly games!

    • Varemenos

      but its full of repeats

      • Futureboy

        Trust me, a few days ago I already expressed my feelings about repeats in Google’s “grand celebration” so I didn’t feel the need to repeat myself.
        On the good side, 3 of the 5 new ones are not games and, overall today’s apps are a good mix of apps and games.

        Also, one good thing about repeats is that – as other commenters have stated, they appreciate repeats because not everybody was able to get them on the first day they were offered.

        Bottom line is.. and I’m sure I speak for most of the community when I say this, repeats or not, we are all thankful for the 10 day sale.

  • wwJOSHdo

    WHY can’t they put Swiftkey Tablet X on there… WHY??? I will be FORCED to pay 5 bucks for it after this promo is up if they don’t! Wahhhh

    • psipher

      you can get Swiftkey Tablet for free from GetJar.

    • BiGMERF

      yea that would be sweet.. although i have been in there tablet beta for a while now and they keep sending me DL’S for updated Beta APK’s

    • Anthony E

      Didn’t they put swiftkey up twice? Can someone provide a link to the free getjar version? A friend of mine wants to put it on another friend’s device.

      • Futureboy

        Yes. The bottom 5 are repeats.

          • Anthony E

            I can tell you with 100% certainty that tomorrow Tank Riders by Polarbit will be on sale :D. I’m so excited. Been planning to get that game, but decided to wait till the 10 days were up, just in case.

            It was actually supposed to be on sale today though.

      • Varemenos

        swiftkey != swiftkey tablet

        • Anthony E

          Oh, I misread. I was thinking, wow he missed it twice? HOW?!

    • itzxdjx

      yeah im waiting on that two we still have two more days *crosses fingers*

  • stenzor

    At the beginning, I was excited to get 100 10 cent apps… but not that half of them are repeats every day….. I’m still excited and grateful to Google for doing this!

    • mikepenz

      Yeah you can’t really say Google is doing this. Correct would be to say the developer do this for you.
      I wrote to the dev of Beautiful widgets and he said the they got a mail from Google and now they
      have sold it for only 10c. So the developer only gets 7c or less for one sold copy

      • Anthony E

        Would you mind sharing your original email and the response email that you received?

      • Max

        Yeah, can you confirm this?

        TechCrunch said this:

        “Google isn’t eating the cost of the discount, but instead asked the developers if they’d be willing to participate in the sale.”

        But I have seen many people here saying that Google pays the regular price to developers, no real source though.


    apps are starting to get repetitive.. still no real productive apps either…. smh

  • Lewis McGeary

    I’ll get some HD Widgets. Been using SlideIT since it was on sale before, but not loving it. Worth buying to take advantage of future updates though.

  • ososxe

    It would be cooler if they were not repeating apps every day…

  • jenskristian

    I’ll probably end up buying HD Widets, Shazam and maybe SlideIT.

  • nault89

    This is getting slightly less exciting every day. Need more useful apps.

  • talktech

    Was planning to buy “Where’s my water ” if it’s not put up for sale. But it turns out I can not buy it because it’s not compatible with Samsung Galaxy tab…

  • ld6772

    Getting some really good apps on this, it’s actually weening me off of the amazon app store.

  • Briareos

    How does HD Widgets compare to Beautiful Widgets? I’ve had BW for ages now, but HD Widgets looks like just more of the same as far as I can tell…

  • azswift

    Sketchbook mobile looks pretty cool and you can use a stylus with it too!

  • kainthedragoonx

    10 cent apps are sweeter than 99 cent apps, that’s for sure. :D

  • Ilyse Rose

    This whole promo started out awesome acne still is, in theory. But now that we see that there are a lot of repeats and games, obviously this promo if more what we thought it would be. 100 apps in 10 days does not mean 60 apps and the rest are repeats.

    • Ilyse Rose

      Though the apps today are slightly better than the last few days, half are repeats and there really isn’t anything good, productivity-wise

  • inthelab

    Some of the 10 cent apps were free on the Amazon Appstore, another place I get free apps is GetJar. Although Amazon usually has the more expensive apps for free!

  • beneyc

    I’ve already got some sweet deals anything else is a bonus..

  • amgala

    Cool, I can use Instant Heart Rate to measure my increasingly high pulse due to delay after delay of the G-Nex

  • Nicholas

    I’ll dump 10 cents on HD Widgets why not.

  • Himal Limbu

    cool apps. i hope SPB shell will be in sale.

  • mclarensr

    HD Widgets for 10 cents sure, I’ll do it.

  • Kris Isaksen

    Nothing again today. Hopefully there will be more new apps tomorrow.

  • David Hughes

    My poor Incredible is having an hard time keeping up with these apps, What I need is the Nexus this week and all my space problems (unless not compatible with ICS) would go away. Thanks for the head start on getting the apps

  • Jon Shiflett

    I want widget locker to come up next. Ditto on the nexus and space problems.

  • David Hughes

    Notice the kid app was missing and my kid likes getting new on the tablet, here the HD version of, previous .10 was not HD version

    Color & Draw for kids HD

  • frmorrison

    I got HD widgets and Heart Rate Pro, with a 10 cent price why not get them?

  • theJP

    Oh Sweet! Just bought HD Widgets.

  • Martjn2

    Android market <3

  • mikepenz

    They shouldn’t have made the list only for ten apps because I think each developer should have had the chance to get onto that list (if his app is good enough)

    And there should have been the option to submit apps for the developers.

    For me todays apps aren’t that good.

    Sad that it was not possible to add an app which was programmed my me.

    • htowngtr

      Didn’t they have SlideIT keyboard just a few days ago?

      • mikepenz

        I think i saw it. why?

      • Futureboy

        Yep. On Day 5. I just posted a master list above for anyone wanting a quick look back.

  • ramenchef

    Half are repeats sadly. On the plus side, flight track is on sale. I hope the pro upgrade goes on sale as well.

  • alxrock

    I’m happy to see HD Widgets there. Still hoping for WidgetLocker though.

  • fletchtb

    I am going to be sad when this promo period is over!

  • goncalossilva

    Great, some solid apps! Bought FlightTrack, SketchBook Mobile and Instant Heart Rate. Had most of the others!

  • ariesness

    Why do some of these apps keep repeating? I was hoping to see new apps each day :(

    • Aleksandar Simov

      yeah… i’m sad about that too :/

  • staryoshi

    I’m in for Flick Golf! and Where’s My Water. I’d like to see some premium productivity apps or something though. I have plenty of games now :)

  • spintrex

    Realized yesterday that the same apps are on sale on Amazon… When I bought my GSII they gave in store credit so this just makes getting these apps much better

  • osc707

    thanks for the update!

  • Dan Jones

    Flight Track: only one I’m interested in.

  • Thomas Biard

    DOWNLOAD ALL THE APPS!!! oh wait, I already did for half of them!

  • gherea

    apps are starting to get repetitive

  • securifirm

    Got HD Widgets and Where’s My Water. Thinking about getting Train Conductor 2

  • Blaw

    Got 4 of them…. ’cause i had the rest from previous days ! Those repetitive ones are good for those that missed them on previous sale !

  • Torrance Barber

    Got HD widgets and Shazam. Not bad. Not bad at’tall

  • Rob Vermeij

    finally some more apps and widgets :) although still some that have been in the 0,10 sale before.

  • mrmrchris

    I’m a little bit disappointed by the number of repeats that are creeping in. Not that I’m ungrateful, I think it’s an awesome promotion for Google to run, but I think this ten day deal could have been a great showcase for a massive selection of apps. There are tons of apps in the market which are brilliantly made, but are by very small developers or aren’t massively well known. Why not showcase 100 such apps, rather than use some over and over? I mean, Shazam Encore is already very widely used, why give it away on multiple days?

    That said, I still think it was a good idea and I have picked up some that I really like. It’s something that the likes of Apple would never do.

  • Jimmy13

    Well let’s see i these HD widgets don’t crash my nook lol.

  • dVyper

    Still loving this promotion. I don’t care about the repeats – at least it let’s people who missed the previous days have a chance to get them again.

  • richoid

    I’m loving these deals, the best one so far has been ADW Launcher EX

  • Pedro

    Love the 0.10€ apps, but Google sitll didn´t released any social app and only released one productivity app.

    Too many games.

  • agrabren

    I’m glad the site posts the lists, since I can’t see the new apps until the afternoon. So this gives me a heads-up about what’s coming today. Pity I already bought “Where’s the water” and beat it, but it was worth it and fun.

  • itzxdjx

    Sweet my friends that missed out on slideIT will get a chance today sweet! And wheres my water is a great game espically for kids and still chalenging enough for adults!

  • itzxdjx

    O btw flight track pro is also a great app!

  • J-Man

    Been wanting to buy FlightTrack for a long time, but never did because it was so expensive. Hello good luck! Also HD Widgets and Where’s My Water seemed like a good try at least.

  • kimminer1

    I am going to have to get a SD card…I am very new to all of this

  • Donald Williams

    WOOO HOOO.. These deals could not have come at a better time. XMAS for someone in this family. (Especially ME) when I hook up the ideapad k1.

    Just wish they did not recycle so many of the same apps. Maybe two to 3 but not 50%

  • Mike Hanel

    what is up with all these repeat apps with this promo? I’ve only spent about a $1.00 so far this past week and got every good app they have been offering…

  • Kam_Pewter

    So many repeats! But at least it’s not all games today. Grabbed FlightTrack and Sketchbook. Doubt I’ll ever use either (who needs illustration software on their phone?), but for 20c, why not?

    PS: I highly recommend Where’s my Water. Very addictive game!

  • thechad

    another dollar well spent

  • Ilyse Rose

    Ok, Where’s My Water is an awesome game, so at least today wasn’t a total bust for me.

  • donger

    aw man, two more days and it’s over.

    • thechad

      I would have no more room on my phone if this goes on much longer. guess i would just need to get more devices.

  • Trinhbo

    Picked up Sketchbook Mobile. It may be difficult to use on a phone but it’ll be a nice investment if I can ever land a free tablet during one of these Tegra giveaways.

  • eliander mendoza

    I want more games for 10 cents i have the usable apps i like already :(

  • marcustg

    I am sad because of the repetition! New apps please! :)

    • Hassanlce

      yes i agree with you.

  • Hassanlce

    thank you gooooooooooooogle it’s great apps .

    I bought the >>

    HD Widgets
    Where’s My Water لعبه ظريفة جداً
    SketchBook Mobile

  • ndub21

    Wish this could go on forever…

  • Emmanuel Rodriguez

    The Bong app is the only app I have ever purchased lol. I need to get in there and check these out

  • Oscar Ortega

    Nothing that i want just repeats and repeats . figured i will spend 10 dollars in this promotion but i guess not hopefully the last two days have awesome apps!!

  • Skis03

    This is one of the best promos yet. Love getting $0.10 apps!

  • cristian cristiandonose

    Come on to many repeating apps. Where’s the new stuff?

  • Stella

    Cool! I’m purchasing HD Widgets, FlightTrack and Instant Heart Rate Pro. I might get Where’s My Water for the kids, too.

  • cabrone

    waiting for tapatalk! :crosses fingers:

  • Jhall222

    I really wish I was able to take advantage of these $.10 deals but im still stuck with my BB because the G-Nex has not come out yet :(

  • gmaedzl

    Just Instant Heart Rate Pro for me. Miss the first three days…

  • Adryan maldonado

    Game dev was definitely my fave. But i bought all except the Christmas Hd and shazaam encore(already have sound hound)

  • McLovin

    For 10 cents a piece I’m buying all of them wether I think I might use them or not. Some of these I’m buying a 2nd time under my kid’s account on their Kindle Fire Christmas present.

  • titaniumwombat

    Does anyone know of a capacitive stylus with a semi-fine tip? I’d love to doodle using SBM (brilliant app, btw, even at full price) but I hate finger painting and all of the stylus I’ve seen have a big finger-tip like point. Any info or links would be greatly appreciated!

  • cwjones4

    Great promotion all around! I love getting cheap aps

  • mmsr5

    Got HD Widgets and Christmas HD. Thank you Google! Love them 10 cent apps.

  • mvndaai

    HD Widgets is great! Way better than beautiful Widgets.

  • vid500

    Nice, and realy amazing for 0,1€, but I think the first few days there were better apps to pick. But realy appreciate the offers.

  • inerdtia

    I still don’t get why they have to repeat apps, but I have bought at least 1 every day.

    (Don’t forget to get the Amazon app store and get their free app of the day too)

  • perlowin

    I love Google! They do such cool things all the time. 10 cent apps? Priceless!

  • McLovin

    The Android Market should learn from this promotion. Amazon’s “free paid app day” promotion has me checking every day to see what’s available for free today. Most of the time its not that great, but every once in a while something cool comes up, OfficeSuite Pro 5, Quickoffice Pro, Paper Camera, etc.

  • calihawki

    I already got Shazam for free in Amazon Appstore. FlightTrack is what I have been waiting for!

  • Bio

    PLEASE bring back Swiftkey X !!!!

  • McLovin
  • mikeytusa

    I bought FlightTrack. I am sure it will come in handy at some point and for only .10, why not?

  • eioous

    Why you gotta be so Awesome and do things like this Google.

  • Fabio R

    Flight track is a must have!

  • Dylan Friedman

    Why the repeat with Flick Golf?!

  • Adam Jones

    These deals ahve been AWESOME! My kids are going to love Where’s My Water? very easy game for 6 year old. My 3 yr old may have a tough time but he’ll grow into it. Heck! I had fun during the 15 minute refund period to make sure i didnt want my $0.10 back!

  • Mike Hanel

    i just want the AndroidandMe widget app back! what ever happend to that thing? Now I’m stuck checking out engadget everyday :(

  • Hall Lo

    YAY was thinking to buy Where’s my Water and now its on sale!! :D Thanks Google!
    And I bought HD Widget… have been using Beautiful Widgets for a long time and wanna try something new :P

  • Fede Montemurri

    I can’t stop buying app’s… nice job!

    • rekaviles

      lol. Same here.

      some I bought twice, to add to my tab. *different G account on tab*

  • Aleksandar Simov

    again and again, 1/2 of the applications repeat :/

  • Aleksandar Simov

    but Instant Heart Rate – Pro is interesting :)

  • GrendelJapan

    Be nice to see World of Goo make the list.

  • sylar

    not great today as far as i’m concerned.

    • phaet2112

      more mercer mayer books are always nice, and the OM books are well done.

  • jiggybyte

    Please….Tasker or Locale!!!

  • humidity

    It’s too bad there’s so many repeats. I was hoping for all new ones everyday. At least it’s nice for people who may have missed some from before!
