Google Play store

The Google Play Store starts its “Favorite Things” sweepstakes, in order to celebrate the app store’s new look, and the prizes are more than tempting: four Nexus 4 smartphones, seven Nexus 7 tablets, ten Nexus 10 tablets, as well as no less than 100 $10 Google Play Store gift cards, as you can see in the Tweet that was posted on the official Google Play account.

Before you get enthusiastic, you should know that entering is only possible if you’re from the U.S. and over 18 (not such good news for a lot of people, but rules are rules). The rest of the rules are very simple; first of all, you need to follow the Google Play account on Twitter and enter your Twitter username in the sweepstakes form.

Then, you need to post a “Favorite Things” tweet on your Twitter feed, with said favorite thing being anything in the Google Play Store, be it an app, movie, music, book, app or whatever else, with the hashtag #favoritethings and a link. Then, you just post the link to the Tweet in the form, add your e-mail address, submit and wait for the winners to be announced.

That should be sometime after 11:59PM PT on April 24, 2013, the time until when entries are accepted.

If you’re from the U.S., will you enter the Google Play Store’s competition?
