Contest: Win a $25 Google Play Gift Card From Droid Life! (Update: Winner Picked)

If you follow us on Twitter (you are following us, right?), then you already know that we’re giving away five (5) $25 Google Play gift cards this week (one per day). Each year, as we approach X-mas, we try to give DL readers an opportunity to win a variety of prizes. For example, we gave away a Tegra 2 device a day for two weeks, last year. And while there may be something similar happening again this year, for now, we’re talking gift cards. Five of ’em. $25 each. One per day. To spend as you please in the Google Play store.

Ready to try and win the first one? 


Update: We have our winner! Congratulations to Skipregan who will buy “apps, apps, and more apps!”

Prize:  1 (one) Google Play gift card worth $25.

How to enter:

1.  Subscribe to our YouTube channel.
2.  Follow us on Google+.
3.  In the comments, tell us the first apps you would spend this $25 gift card on.


Today, at 4PM Pacific, we will choose the winner randomly from the comments.

    I would buy Falcon Pro and any of the apps Droid-Life recommends to me!

  • Patrick Maher

    Need for Speed Most Wanted

    I’d put it toward some Quantified Self apps …

  • Scott Manders

  • skipregan

  • Jeff Broders

    Hmm..not sure I really need any more apps at the moment, so hopefully something like Zombies, Run! has a sequel or something similar.

  • Alexandros Georgiou

    Need for speed, GTA Vice city!

  • Touchdown Exchange email application

  • kwwwar

    GTA most likely.

  • Steven Lenhert

    I would put it towards a Nexus 7 or Nexus 10! I’ve been wanting one of these beauties since they came out.

  • I would buy all of the Tegra exclusive games on my nexus 7

  • EnriqueNOrtiz

    Id use it to buy Where’s my Perry and all the in-app content for Where’s my Water! Id then buy the Yoda levels on Angry Birds Star Wars.

  • Brian Ruden

    office, maybe?

  • I would get BeyoundPod I listen to a lot of podcasts and would like to update all at the same time.

  • Raven

    I pretty much buy all of the apps that I want as I find them, so not really anything that I am waiting for. I would probably use it to buy a HD movie from Google Play Movies since they are so over priced.

  • Angela Baldwin

    I would buy the following: Amazing Spiderman, the Bard’s Tale, Paper Camera, Paperland Pro LWP, XDA Premium, and GrooVeIP. Phew!

  • FOXFI, swiftkey, titanium pro

    Photo shop for Asus Transformer Pad

  • Grand Theft Auto Vice City when it releases. Requires a lot of developer work, they deserve it.

  • i would buy Angry birds star wars full with non ads.

  • eddie

    I will buy reddit sync pro!

  • Alan Taylor

    I would first purchase Granny Smith, then GTA and then Chameleon Launcher for my Nexus 7

  • i’d give it to my two kids as a stocking stuffer. they are both getting nexus 7s for christmas. making santa look good. i’m guessing angry birds star wars would be a purchase since the free version isn’t compatible with the 7.

  • Jesse McCall

    “Titanium Backup Pro”
    “TabNotes Pro”
    “Battery Widget? Reborn!” once it gets out of beta!

  • cJeep


  • Jong Chung

    I’ll actually be getting my first tablet as a gift this year, so I’d put it towards a utility app like Logmein Ignition, for a start.

    Need For Speed

  • GTA Vice City …
    and Poweramp….
