Feels like it was just yesterday that I was writing the last one of these, but here we are halfway through the week. That means another round of apps that have gone free or on sale! Quite a few have popped up since then, though there is still a theme that centers around icon packs and games. Read More
The conventional wisdom is that limiting your app downloads to the Play Store will help you avoid malware. That's true for the most part, but every now and then we hear about something sketchy that fell through the cracks. For instance, the security firm Check Point says that a number of "game guide" apps in the Play Store were hiding malicious code, and they may have accumulated millions of downloads. Read More
It's the start of a new week and it's time for another round of free and on-sale apps. For some of us, the semester is starting to wind down with finals on the horizon. So whether you have a case of the Monday blues or you're gearing up to close out this session of school, today's selection may help keep you going. Read More
Wednesday is here and it's time for some more app deals. The list today is, mercifully, shorter than Monday's — that was quite the doozy. And in case anyone is wondering, we designate "cheap" as $0.20 or less with "on-sale" being anything higher than that. Read More
Remember the new Play Store "My Apps" screen layout that we spotted in testing in a dogfood version in February? Well, that appears to be rolling out more widely now, possibly even to everyone.

With all the talk about the Galaxy S8, you may have missed Samsung's latest milestone. For the first time, one of its Play Store apps reached one billion installs. Given its 4.1 star rating and over half a million reviews, it is surprising it took this long. Read More
Another Friday is here and we're back with some more deals on apps. There are a bunch to get through, but let's go over some logistical stuff first. There are two sections in today's post: free and on-sale apps.
Next to each one you will find the original price, what it is now, and how long each sale has left before it expires (if available). It is all accurate at the time of this writing. Read More
We're back once again with some more free and cheap apps for you all. There are a few in here that you may have seen before in previous roundups, but now you have a second chance to grab them if you missed out the first time they were free.
You might notice a trend in today's selection. Most of them have a focus on customization and personalization, so there are quite a few icon packs to choose from today. Read More
