About a year ago, Google launched the Google Play Store. It was the official replacement for the Google Android Market, which back then was the only place where users of Android tablets and smartphones could go to in order to download Android apps. Today, to celebrate the Play Store’s very first birthday, Google is pulling a Good Guy Greg and is offering gifts to all Android users instead of the other way around.

To kick off this week-long Google Play Store birthday celebration, Google has started offering Android users gift cards, exclusive in-app content, limited-time deals, and huge discounts on apps. If you make your way to the Google Play Store right now, you’ll find that some games now feature new exclusive characters, and that you can also get special deals on books, movies, music, and magazines.

And if you don’t find anything that you think is worth spending on, don’t worry. As mentioned earlier, the Google Play Store’s 1st birthday celebration lasts all week long. And the deals and discounts will be updated every day of the week. So hold on to your wallets and keep an eye out for those exclusive offers until something you fancy comes along.
