Got plans for Memorial Day? If you're in the US, you're probably right in the middle of a long weekend. If you're looking for something to keep occupied, you're in luck – there are tons of apps and games on sale for the weekend. From utility-minded apps like Dropsync Pro to lighthearted time wasters like Cut the Rope Experiments, the Play Store's got some deals you should check out. We'll be keeping the list updated as we find more.
Ready for some top-notch game titles for a buck each? Great, because we've shortened the deal list to just two extremely worthy titles today: AVP: Evolution and Fieldrunners 2. Both have been knocked down to a mere dollar for Memorial Day weekend, and both are excellent games.
For the uninitiated who may not be familiar with AVP: Evolution, it's the next stage in the murderous battle for supremacy between the two other-worldly titans of our time: Alien and Predator.
If you have been keeping up with Amazon's Free App Of The Day, you've probably amassed a really big collection of pretty bad apps. In fact, since the launch of the Appstore in March 2011, only a couple dozen winners have graced the front page with a $0 price tag. Today we're lucky enough to see another one of those rare gems, 10000000 ("ten million"), for everybody to enjoy at no cost.
Just yesterday we featured a deal for the AT&T version of the enormous LG Optimus G Pro over at Amazon Wireless, but if you're willing to put in a bit of legwork (and you live in one of a few specific areas in the US) you can do even better. Fry's electronics stores have the Optimus G Pro available for just $99.99 with a new two-year contract. That's a full half off of AT&T's retail price for the subsidized phone.
Well, it's that time again. Time to talk about apps and games that happen to be cheaper than they are on "normal" days – and today's selection brings some mighty interesting options to the table. If you're into music creation, a couple of tools from developer niko twenty made the cut; there's also something for the aspiring meteorologists (or just someone who wants to know what the weather is like); as well as a pair of intriguing game titles.
Now that the big spring phone releases are out of the way, you can make an informed decision on any pending purchases. The HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 both have their strong points, and you can get a solid deal on both of them, provided you're flexible on carriers. Amazon has both currently listed for $129.99 with a 2-year contract.
The HTC One in question is the 32GB AT&T variant, and it's usually $199.99 (last on sale for $150).
If you need a way to take your mind off how depressing it is to not be at Google I/O, then maybe a new app or game will help with that. There just so happens to be quite a few on sale today that may be able to help keep your busy brain at bay, lest you might drive yourself insane.

Now, stop being so blue, panda bear.
Move fast boys and gals – the unlocked international variant of the GS4 (I9500, Exynos chip) is available for $640 on eBay Daily Deals again today. These deals usually sell out pretty quickly, so if you want to get your hands on The Next Big Thing without a contract (or paying full retail price) you better jump on this now.
Here's hoping all of our readers are having a peaceful Mother's Day. If any of you gave your mom a Google Play Store gift certificate (and your mother is particularly fond of action games or weather widgets) you might point her towards this story for a few bargain-priced suggestions. Sega has a couple of their Android ported games on sale, and Minecraft is discounted over on Amazon. The surprisingly powerful eWeather HD/Radar HD is also on sale, along with the gaming-focused remote access suite Kainy.
Just over two weeks before LG's likely Optimus G2 announcement, Sprint's variant of the Optimus G's received another price drop. Amazon Wireless is now offering the Nexus 4's manufacturer-skinned cousin for just a penny with a new account, and just $30 on upgrade or when adding a new line.
For those who don't remember, the 4.7" device (that's got a 768x1280 display at 318ppi) also houses a 13MP camera, a Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB RAM, and a 2100mAh battery pack.
