Amazon follows up Google Play, reduces App prices by 50 percent

Google recently changed the name of their official App Store for Android-based Smartphone & Tablets from Android Market to Google Play Store. The reason for that was the addition of Music, Movies, Books and other entertainment content for Android users.

In order to spread Google Play Store, the company slashed prices of several high-quality apps and games from $0.99 to $0.49 (50% discount). Also, Google Play enables users to access their content on the web, and sync the same on any Android device anytime, anywhere.

In order to stay competitive, Amazon which already runs a dedicated App Store for Android devices has slashed prices of several of its popular apps and games viz. SoundHound, Quell Reflect, Asphalt 6 etc. but there is a problem. You can’t see the deals in one place, which means you, would have to search through all the apps and select the ones which are now available at a discounted price.

On the whole, this is a win-win situation for all Android users. On one hand, Google has put up several premium games at 50% discount and has plans to put up more apps at 75% discount in near future while on the other stand-alone App Stores like Amazon are also reducing prices because of imposed competition from Google.

Seriously, Android users are quite lucky, Apple recently received 25 Billion app downloads, yet they haven’t got any special promotion from Apple.

Byline: (this should be added after the contest or before the contest, it's your call)
