It's Wednesday, so here are 31 temporarily free and 34 on-sale apps, plus the Game of the Week

Welcome to the first Wednesday of August; I hope that the month is off to a good start for all of you. I'm here again with another list of apps that are either free or on sale, though it's slim pickings for good ones despite the large number available to choose from.

And the ten-cent app, as usual, excludes the U.S. (despite it being on its own sale here).

Choosing a new wallpaper, finding the best icon placement and alignment, obsessing about icon pack zips and rars until I stumbled upon the perfect one for my setup, then adding and moving and removing widgets to fit with everything. Now, I just open Backdrops from time to time to get a new wallpaper and I keep the same homescreen setup without even bothering with icon packs. The reasons I've abandoned icon packs are many: learning curve to spot your icons under new designs, it's rare to find a pack that covers all my icons, and icon masks, just like Android O's new adaptive icons, are plain terrible.
