The announcement of Google Play yesterday saw some mixed reactions, at least when it came to the name. On the deals front, people couldn’t be happier. Some of the top games in Android were dropped to $0.49 for a limited time, plus Google plans to offer cheap deals of the day at prices as low as $0.25. Whether or not you like the name, you have to be a fan of the marketing push to get you to like it.
Not to be outdone or out-shined, Amazon has matched Google’s offers across the board since they control pricing on their market. You’ll find SoundHound for $0.49, along with Quell Reflect, mSecure and more. Now, Amazon doesn’t have all of the same apps that the Google Play store has, nor do they have them all laid in one easy to find landing page for quick downloading, but hey, at least they are trying.
So if you prefer to download your apps through Amazon, you can find most of them at the same price that Google is offering.
