In the race to sell LG's latest flagship Android phone to Americans, T-Mobile wins by a nose. As promised, the carrier is now selling its own version of the G4 to customers. You can buy it outright on T-Mo's contract-free setup for $599.76, or split your payments into 24 monthly chunks of $24.99. T-Mobile is also giving away a free 128GB MicroSD card with new purchases while supplies last - according to Amazon, that's about an $80 value.
Attention parents! Google has some free music on Google Play today to make your next family road trip a pleasure for your children and torture for you. Play: Music, by The Rainbow Collections, is currently free. This timeless collection of wonderful(ly annoying) children's music contains classics such as 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star', 'Row Your Boat', and 'Old MacDonald'.
As much as I have tried to educate my two boys that eighties rock is far better road trip music material, they still prefer this dreadful stuff.
Google has decided to bless us with some free stuff, as they are apt to do. This time, you can own each of 12 episodes of shows on Comedy Central by just heading over there and grabbing them, free of charge. Each episode comes from a different program, which is probably just the network trying to give people a reason to get familiar with their offerings. Google, on the other hand, wants to remind you that the Play Store is a good option to buy this sort of thing.
The current Humble Mobile Bundle has been live for a week and there's one week still to go. That means new games have been added to sweeten the deal. The already great selection of six games has been joined by Groundskeeper 2 and Highrise Word Heroes.
Google semi-regularly offers free albums on the Play Store, and here's one for the ages. No, seriously. We're talking such timeless hits as Nocturnes, Op. 9: No. 1 in B-Flat Minor and Messiah: Hallelujah! These and thirteen other tracks are waiting for those who jump on this opportunity to download the Play Classical album. This deal is probably limited to the US, but you never know.
The free selection has varied greatly over the past several months.
Tower defense games have existed on Android since the very beginning. Remember Robo Defense? Yeah, me too. The genre has evolved over the years, and Kingdom Rush is one of the finest examples of it. Developer Ironhide Games has apparently decided to do Android gamers a solid and has made the original Kingdom Rush free. It was previously only a buck, but still. Yay, free stuff!
Amazon just loves to give away free stuff. I mean seriously, they have free movies, free music, free books, free digital storage, free shipping, and a free cardboard box with every order. Granted, most of those goodies require a Prime membership, but hey, the boxes are really free!
Well, Amazon is up to their normal charitable shenanigans once again today, this time offering up a bundle of paid apps and games on their Appstore for the low price of free (no Prime membership required).
The new Humble Mobile Bundle has been updated with new games, and you know what that means (if you've been paying attention). Yes, we have 10 free bundle codes to hand out. The new additions are Skullpogo and Oh My Giraffe, and you can have your chance to win these titles and more just below.
Samsung has a hit on its hands with the Galaxy S6. (That's what a complete redesign and finally giving people what they've been wanting for years will do for a brand.) So if in-country rival LG didn't have a fight on its hands before the latest round of flagships was released, it definitely does now.
Amazon has been giving away one paid app for free each day since the Appstore launched in 2011. It hasn't been the rousing success Amazon probably hoped for, but the Appstore is still doing okay with about 400,000 listings. Now, the company is rumored to be prepping a big project called Unlocked to generate more interest in the Appstore. It's basically Amazon Prime for apps.
According to the internal presentation leaked to TechCrunch, Unlocked will offer paid apps and games at absolutely no charge.
