Amazon Drops The Price On A Few Useful Apps, Calling It “Geek Week”

Love it or hate the Amazon Appstore has some incredible deals. From their discount prices to their Free App A Day program, you can’t go wrong. Amazon has launched a new promotion called “Geek Week”, in which they have discounted a few useful apps for the above average Android user.

The apps are a mix of both tools and utilities and are as followed:

  • Easy Tether for $4.99 (normally $9.99)
  • Root Explorer for $0.99 (normally $3.99)
  • WidgetLocker for $0.99 (normally $1.99)
  • Wave Launcher for $0.99 (normally $1.99)
  • SetCPU for $0.99 (normally $2)
  • RepliGo Reader for $1.99 (normally $4.99)
  • Xtralogic Remote Desktop Client for $12.99 (normally $24.95)
  • BackupEverything for $0.99 (normally $1.99)

I’ve used Wave Launcher and would recommend it (it was free a few months ago). As for the essentials, I would say both Root Explorer and SetCPU are a must have for any rooted user. Easy Tether could be useful for users who aren’t rooted and are looking to tether their phone to other devices.

To take advantage of these deals, hit up for Amazon Appstore on your phone or tablet.

    Word! I just picked up WidgetLocker for .99! I’ve wanted this App for a while now, and that is definitely the right price. Thanks for the tip!

    Edit: meant for sinistar83

    Im not 110% sure, but I don’t think it will work with a pattern lock. I think the dev may even have a warning for it.

  • Sinistar83

    With WidgetLocker can you use it if you have a pattern lock set or is it only meant for “regular” locked phones?

  • My wife and i felt really ecstatic when Raymond managed to finish up his studies while using the ideas he got using your blog. It is now and again perplexing to just be giving away secrets and techniques that many a number of people have been making money from. And we all remember we’ve got you to appreciate for that. The most important explanations you have made, the easy website menu, the friendships you will make it easier to instill – it’s got mostly astonishing, and it’s really leading our son in addition to the family imagine that the matter is awesome, and that is incredibly indispensable. Many thanks for the whole thing!

    If “BackupEverything” actually works, I won’t be as hesitant to reinstall the OS or upgrade devices later.  Needing root to use the full backup capabilities of MyBackup and Titanium has always been a sticking point for me.

  • I’d have to disagree on SetCPU being useful.  If you’re on an OG, there are enough kernels with different clock speeds that you can pick one you like.  I’ve found that phone runs better without SetCPU and gets better battery life.  Especially with Pete’s kernels.

    My new apartment blocks online PS3 and im looking to get my Bionic tethered to it. Will Verizon catch me if I do a decent amount of online gaming through Easy Tether? Not excited about $30/month tethering charge if I don’t need to pay it.

  • yea..go ahead and buy it…good luck getting any updates within months of them being released….

  • Does anybody know if you need to have keep the amazon appstore on device like you do for free apps?
    Not sure I want another appstore on my Bionic.

    • Yes I believe you do have to have that on there.  Amazon appstore is great.  No reason to not have it on your phone…

  • Would Widget Locker work for the Bionic?

  • I wish this was available 3 days ago.  Had to buy Easy Tether because even with root I can’t do wireless tethering (stock root DX with GB).  Needed it for class and ended up paying the full $9.99.  Oh well.
