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.

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.
It's been a little while since we last saw a nice deal on Samsung's Galaxy Note II. If you're still lusting after Samsung's latest (for now) and greatest phablet creation, but haven't convinced yourself to shell out the requisite cash, listen up – both the Verizon and Sprint-bound variants are enjoying a nice price slashing.
Amazon Wireless is offering Verizon's Note II for just $79.99 with a new account, and $150 on upgrades.
As the weekend begins, you know deep down inside what's missing in your life. Happiness, love, and security? Nah, if that's what you were about to say, that's dead wrong. What you need is a big honkin' phone in your pocket running on Big Red's 4G LTE network. Oh, and it can't just be big – it needs to have a full HD screen too. The Droid DNA certainly fits the description, and it just so happens it can be yours for the low price of $19.99 (some restrictions apply, phone will not love you back).
We've come across a pretty decent bundle of apps and games with less-than-normal price tags today. Since you probably already understand what this post is all about, let's cut the fluff and get right into it, shall we?

We first heard about the Jambox's larger sibling, the BIG Jambox, just over a year ago. At the time, it promised to be bigger (of course) and better than the original, offering a bigger battery, a wall power adapter, and "unbelievable sound". If reviews are to be believed, the Jambox managed to deliver good sound and power, while maintaining the unique design language of its smaller counterpart.
If you're in the market for a Bluetooth speaker, the BIG Jambox is a decent choice, and Amazon's sweetened the prospect by putting the device on sale for $249.99, down $50 from its usual $299.99 price.
