So here you are on another Monday, the week stretching out before you into infinity. Will Friday ever arrive? Maybe and maybe not. Until we find out, you can occupy yourself with these apps and games, which are on sale for a pittance. They won't alter the flow of time to make it Friday, but at least you'll save some money.
If you're looking for a good, affordable device, it's hard to beat the Moto G. It's running KitKat, has a very one hand-able 4.5-inch display, and now comes with LTE. On Amazon, this little guy will set you back $220, but it looks like Best Buy is trying to get rid of some backstock, as it recently dropped the price to $180. That's an LTE-enabled Motorola device running KitKat for less than two hundred monies.
At this point, it's likely that everyone who really wants a Nexus 5 already has one. But if by some chance you don't, an eBay seller is offering it at a small discount that could add up to significant savings. The Daily Deals page is selling the standard 16GB Nexus 5 for $339.99, $10 off of the price you get in the Google Play Store.
Maybe that doesn't seem like much, but add in the fact that you get free shipping and no sales tax if you live outside California, and the savings add up.
If you own any of Amazon's Android-powered devices, and you buy new apps or in-app purchases regularly, you might want to take advantage of the latest Coins promotion. Amazon is selling 10,000 of its self-branded credits (equivalent to $100 USD when buying apps) for just $75 today. If you spend at least some money every week in the Amazon Appstore, this should be a good deal that will cover you for quite a while.
Update: As it turns out, there's many more where that came from. Carcassonne is part of Amazon's current "Over $100 in Essential Apps FREE Thursday and Friday Only" deal. It's joined by a slew of free apps and games.
There's always a free app of the day in the Amazon Appstore, but sometimes consumers are treated to multiple giveaways on the site at the same time. Today's free app, Sorcery, is joined by Carcassonne, which just happens to be going for the glorious price of $0.00 at the same time.
Okay, we had an app sales post earlier today, but something just popped up that we felt was worthy of its own emergency sales post in case we don't get another full sales roundup ready before it's gone. Monument Valley, easily one of the coolest games to grace Android in... well, ever... is on sale for $2.49. Update: It's $1.99 now. Are you buying it?
If you act quick, you can get a nice deal on an tablet from Newegg, which is offering 10% off a bunch of Android slates. It's not clear how many devices are included, but the new Shield Tablet is one of them (that's $30 off). This deal ends tonight—July 31st. Update: Looks like Newegg just removed the Shield from the list of tablets you can use the code on. Other devices seem to still work fine.
There's a bitter divide in the world of Android hardware: those who love expandable storage and those who don't. (There are a few who are indifferent and level-headed, but they never seem to speak up in the comments section.) If you fall into the former category, head over to Amazon's Gold Box one-day deal page. They're selling Transcend brand MicroSD cards for dirt cheap.
You can pick up a 32GB MicroSD card for $13.99, more than $20 off of Amazon's regular price.
The Gorilla Gadgets CHR-150 16,800mAh external battery pack is currently on sale for $39.99 on Woot. The site lists this as a savings of 71% ($100 off its original $139.99). This undercuts the price currently displayed on Amazon, where the battery goes for $69.99. This Woot deal, which will be over before the end of today, costs nearly half as much.
Gorilla Gadgets' external battery comes with an LED screen that shows how much of a charge the pack has remaining.
