Wednesday is here and it's time for some more app deals. The list today is, mercifully, shorter than Monday's — that was quite the doozy. And in case anyone is wondering, we designate "cheap" as $0.20 or less with "on-sale" being anything higher than that.

[Update: Gone] Game of Thrones season 5 is free on Google Play, but only in SD

Free stuff is free stuff, no matter what it is. All the better, then, when you like what's being offered. In this case, Google Play is offering HBO's Game of Thrones season 5 in standard definition, which should please a large proportion of people.

Game of Thrones, the TV adaptation of the popular novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R. R. Martin, will surely go down a treat with Google Play shoppers in the US (sorry, everyone else - it looks like you're out of luck here).

I reviewed the V-Moda Crossfade wireless headphones last week and found them to be one of the best looking and sounding set of cans I've tested to date. They are built with top-shelf materials that justify their premium price tag of $300.

That's not a trifling amount to spend on a set of headphones, and lucky for you guys, one of you won't have to pay a single cent to get their hands on a pair.

[Deal Alert] Ghost Team, a new comedy starring Jon Heder, is free on Google Play (countries where it's free only)

Hey guys, apparently there is a new movie called 'Ghost Team' starring Jon Heder (AKA Napoleon Dynamite), David Krumholtz, Justin Long and some other people. It's about some losers with dead-end jobs that fill their free time by searching for evidence that ghosts exist. The opportunity presents itself to our lowly heroes to hunt ghosts at an abandoned farm, and so they do. Predictably, the ghosts then turn the tables and hunt them. During the course of all this, laughter inducing events occur (maybe).

Reminder: Your New Chromecast Came With A Free Play Movies Rental, Use It!

Did you buy the new-and-improved 2015 Chromecast? If so, you may have forgotten that your purchase includes a free movie rental on Google Play Movies, even if you'd already purchased a Chromecast previously (offers are per device, not account - so you get one for each CC you purchased up to a maximum of five). The movie rental offer doesn't apply to Chromecast Audio purchases, in case you were wondering.


The current offer runs until the end of the year (12/31/15), so there's no rush to redeem it. As always, in order to redeem the offer, you'll need to open the Chromecast app on your device or head to while on the same network as or nearby your Chromecast device.

[Deal Alert] Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here' Free On Google Play Music (Probably, Most Likely, Definitely, Maybe, Possibly US Only)

Right now, I wish you were here with me. You and I could share a cigar (or maybe a Sprite instead, I think smoking is blech) and then I could welcome you to the machine sitting in my living room that I am typing on right now.

Together, we could reminisce about old bands and old times when music was pure and innovative while songs played on my computer's speakers. When sufficiently inspired, we might play and sing some of our favorite hits together with the Sprite coursing through our veins lending courage to our voices. If you were here I could watch you shine on, you crazy diamond, you.
