It has been a fun 10-day span of exploring and downloading Android Market apps. Some I had wanted to try and others I had never heard of before. One thing I learned during this week and a half was that I can actually try out apps any time, because the Android Market allows you to get a refund for apps within 15 minutes of ordering them. That’s really handy if you’re wanting to try an app and have the time to try it out.
In this post, I’ll list the apps that are available today and next week I’ll do a recap of the apps that were available during the 10 billion downloads sale and start reviewing the apps I’m using. Today’s apps are as follows:
Today is Day 4 of the 10 cent app celebration by the Android Market, celebration 10 billion downloads. The only problem is that the Android Market is experiencing a payment processing issue and if you try to by one of the apps, you get the following error: “An error occurred while processing your purchase. Please try again later.”
You can still buy most of the 10 cent apps today, if you use the Amazon App store. The following are the 10 cent apps available in the Amazon App store today:
- Shazam Encore by Shazam Entertainment Ltd.
- Sentinel 3: Homeworld by Origin8 Technologies Ltd.
- Baseball Superstars 2011 by GAMEVIL, Inc
- Paper Camera by JFDP Labs LTD
- Farm Frenzy by HeroCraft Ltd
- TETRIS ® by ELECTRONIC ARTS INC (I know I already mentioned it, that’s why it’s at the top of the list.) This version of Tetris has great touch controls, allowing you to intuitively interact with the pieces.

- Homerun Battle 3D by COM2US
- Reckless Getaway by POLARBIT

I’ll be reviewing the different apps I get this week over the next couple of months and let you know which of these apps I start using permanently. Hopefully, I’ll get a tablet some time soon and be able to check out the HD apps, as well.
The Android Market continues its 10-day celebration of reaching 10 billion downloads by offering more premium apps for a mere 10 cents each. Today’s choices include the following:

If you have an Android phone or tablet, you should definitely take advantage of this special sale, as these prices are the lowest ever! One thing I found out, though, since I have an older phone with not much memory, is that if you uninstall an app within 15 minutes from the Android Market, the order automatically gets cancelled. So, if you are like me and have to pick and choose which apps you can run, just make sure your app is installed for at least fifteen minutes to take advantage of this great sale!
