If you simply can't wait for the next Humble bundle to roll around, there's now an Android-specific alternative available. iKoid is a new service that just released its first indie game bundle, this time at a fixed but very reasonable price of $2.49. It includes five games: They Need To Be Fed, Bridge Constructor Playground, Hero Of Many, Don't Run With A Plasma Sword, And Streetfood Tycoon Extreme, which would cost about $9 together on the Google Play Store.
Two days ago, Google officially launched Newsstand, an app that combines Play Magazines and Currents to offer an all-in-one-place news source. To celebrate the launch of this new product, the company is now offering several magazines for free or at a discounted rate, presumably so potential customers can get their feet wet and see what the mag experience is all about.
There's a pretty wide variety of titles available for free and/or cheap right now, including MaximumPC, Men's Health, People, PC Gamer, Maxim, Wired, Women's Health, Entertainment Weekly, Runners, In Style, Sports Illustrated, BeerAdvocate, Vanity Fair, Bicycling, Linux Format, Redbook, and a lot more.
The MicroSD card slot seems to be a dying feature on later Android phones (at Google's insistence, no less), but those of you who still have one will want to check out Amazon's daily Gold Box deals today. Among an appreciable smattering of other Transcend flash storage deals, the site has three great prices for MicroSD cards starting at just ten bucks.
On the lowest tier we've got a Transcend 16GB MicroSD card for ten bucks.
Verizon just released its variant of the HTC One Max for a cool three-hundred dollar bill this morning, but Wirefly clearly thought that was just too much, so it knocked a full 50 percent off that. Yeah, you can get the One Max for $150. Of course, that requires a new two-year agreement, but it looks like it's working for both new contracts and upgrades. That's hard to beat.
At this point, we're thinking this could be an error on someone's part, because that's a hell of a deal on a brand-spankin'-new handset, especially one like the One Max.
A couple of days ago, Amazon and NewEgg slashed the price of the 32GB 2013 Nexus 7 to just $239. What made this odd is that the 16GB variant, which is just nine dollars less, didn't receive any sort of price cut. This of course made the buying choice super easy – the 32GB version was the only way to go. If $239 is still a bit too much to be easily justified, however, the 16 gigger is now only $199.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is one of the best smartphones money can buy. However, it does take a lot of money to buy one. As an unexpected thank you for buying its giant tablet-phone, Samsung is offering $50 in Google Play credit, and all you have to do is enter some information online.
It's easy – just hit up the website below and input your phone number, IMEI, and a few other bits of information.
Looking for a 32GB 2013 Nexus 7 on the cheap (in the US)? Amazon and Newegg to the rescue! While this isn't the lowest price we've ever seen, it is pretty close to it, and more importantly, it's not through eBay or a less than well-known 3rd party retailer - these are the big-box guys.
Getting things kicked off, the 32GB 2013 Nexus 7 is one of today's Newegg featured daily deals, coming it at an impressive $239.00 sans tax and shipping, beating the Play Store price by a rather substantial $30, or 11%.
