Google Play holds huge Black Friday promotion, has tens of discounted apps up for grabs

The day after Thanksgiving is always the worst. If you’ve not eaten too much turkey, you’ve most definitely got a hangover and vice versa. Not to mention what happens if you have both. Yikes!

Thankfully, the rise of consumerism has its upsides, and one of that is called Black Friday. It’s a day of total happiness and relaxation, when you can just lie in bed and buy stuff. Ideally stuff you need. Like super-cheap Android apps.

Oh, now I got your attention? Well, how about if I tell you that Google Play has a huge sale that includes tens of apps whose prices have been slashed with up to 90%. At least tens of apps that we know of, based on what Mobile Syrup and a bunch of Reddit users have managed to dig up.

After combing through the huge list you can see in full here, I’ve already made my own short list of apps I absolutely cannot miss. This is led by Gameloft’s The Amazing Spider Man, BackStab, The Adventures of Tintin and Gangstar Rio: City of Saints, four titles that we already knew were going to get their prices dropped to just $0.99.

Other cool games that I got my eyes on are Sega’s Sonic 4 Episode 2 (discounted from $6.99 to $2.99), Need for Speed: Most Wanted (previously $6.99, now $4.99), and Ground Effect Pro HD (dropped from $3.99 to $1.99).

A bunch of productivity apps are next in line, mostly because of their huge discounts. Quickoffice Pro is the champion here (available at $0.99 after a full $14 price cut), but the $1.99 Swiftkey 3 Keyboard and the $8.95 Documents ToGo sound extremely appealing as well.

We don’t know for sure when the promotion is going to end, although Monday is thrown around as a deadline online, but my personal advice would be to think less and act more. The sooner the better. And the more apps you’re going to get now the less you’re going to spend later, think about it. That said, drop us a line below and tell us your own personal Google Play shopping lists for this week-end.
