Google Play “Cyber Weekend” Sale Offers Deals On Apps, Media


With all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals we’ve been hearing about, it only makes sense that Google would want to get in the action. Considering just how many Android users are out there, Google didn’t want to restrict sales to any one day, and so is christening this whole weekend a special sale period, with “Cyber Weekend” offers extending from apps, to books, movies, and music.

Google’s calling these app deals the best of 2012, and while that may be a matter of personal opinion, there are definitely some big savings to be had. SwiftKey 3, for instance, is half-price, down from $4 to $2. Games on sale include Sonic 4: Episode II ($3, down from $7) and Virtua Tennis Challenge ($2, was $5), while some more expensive apps offer even more significant savings; Navigon USA slashes its price from $50 to $25 and DocumentsToGo goes from $15 to $9.

More than just savings on apps themselves, this sale is offering discounts on in-app purchases. Games like Eternity Warriors 2 and Zynga Poker are offering things like extra chips and discounted weapons for interested gamers.

Google says that it has selected movies for purchase for as low as $5, but all the titles we checked out only went as low as $6; we suppose that’s still not too bad. There’s a nice selection of books available for 80% off, and a handful of TV seasons are available for as little as $10. The album savings are a mixed bag, but quite a few popular titles are priced from $3 and up.

In addition to all this, Google also has some deals on half-price magazine subscriptions. Take a look around through the source link below; chances are, with so much discounted, you’ll be able to find something that catches your eye.
