Google Play Offers Its First Free App Of The Week—A PBS App Tucked Away In The Family Section

Giving away free apps is sort of Amazon's thing. Each day the company offers up a different piece of software in hopes of attracting Android users away from their default app store. Now Google seems to be dipping its toes in the water and trying out something similar. Instead of a free app of the day, we can download one for the week.

The offer isn't immediately apparent when you first open the Play Store. A banner advertising "New Family Fun" appears at the bottom of the screen. Clicking that will take you over to the family section, where you should see another banner advertising a free app of the week from PBS Kids.

T-Mobile Begins Selling The LG G4: $25 A Month Or $600 Outright, With a Free 128GB MicroSD Card

In the race to sell LG's latest flagship Android phone to Americans, T-Mobile wins by a nose. As promised, the carrier is now selling its own version of the G4 to customers. You can buy it outright on T-Mo's contract-free setup for $599.76, or split your payments into 24 monthly chunks of $24.99. T-Mobile is also giving away a free 128GB MicroSD card with new purchases while supplies last - according to Amazon, that's about an $80 value.


The G4 is a worthy adversary to flagships like the HTC One M9 and Samsung's pair of Galaxy S6 siblings. In his exhaustive review, David Ruddock praised the phone's excellent battery life, solid display, and competitive camera.

[Deal Alert] 'The Rainbow Collections' Play: Kids - An Album Of Classic Children's Music - Is Free On Google Play

Attention parents! Google has some free music on Google Play today to make your next family road trip a pleasure for your children and torture for you. Play: Music, by The Rainbow Collections, is currently free. This timeless collection of wonderful(ly annoying) children's music contains classics such as 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star', 'Row Your Boat', and 'Old MacDonald'.

kids crap

As much as I have tried to educate my two boys that eighties rock is far better road trip music material, they still prefer this dreadful stuff. They are only two and five though, and I suppose it's educational (How else would you learn how to use a teapot?), so I will continue to tolerate it for now.

[Deal Alert] 12 Episodes Of Comedy Central Shows Are Currently Free In The Google Play Store

Google has decided to bless us with some free stuff, as they are apt to do. This time, you can own each of 12 episodes of shows on Comedy Central by just heading over there and grabbing them, free of charge.

[Deal Alert] Get The (Mostly) Instrumental Album 'Play Classical' Free On Google Play

Google semi-regularly offers free albums on the Play Store, and here's one for the ages. No, seriously. We're talking such timeless hits as Nocturnes, Op. 9: No. 1 in B-Flat Minor and Messiah: Hallelujah! These and thirteen other tracks are waiting for those who jump on this opportunity to download the Play Classical album. This deal is probably limited to the US, but you never know.


The free selection has varied greatly over the past several months. We've seen albums from the likes of Kascade, Coldplay, Meatloaf, and Toto. Before that, there was Disney's Frozen.

I'm an instrumental music guy, so I've already hit the download button for this one. If you're not sure you're a fan, now would be a great time to take a chance and Play Classical.
