Apologies for us not hosting a Google Play gift card giveaway in a while, but with smartphone release schedules getting moved around this year, we have been a bit busy. To make up for it, we’re going pretty big this time around with $300 in gift cards for 18 different winners. This is probably our biggest gift card giveaway to date. Well, we have given away $300 before, but not to 18 different people.
This time, we are handing out 10 $10 gift cards, along with another 8 $25 gift cards. Your chances of winning are better than they have ever been.
The contest runs from right now until tomorrow morning. When it finishes, we’ll email winners and then send over redemption codes. Within minutes of being chosen, you can begin enjoying free cash.
As always, we went with Rafflecopter to manage the contest. There are a number of ways to enter, so choose which way you find easiest. The more you enter, though, the more chances you have to win.

Back in November of 2013, Google introduced an app called Google Opinion Rewards. We haven’t talked about the app much since, but because it has become a great source of funding for app purchases (like icon pack hotness), we figured it was time for a reminder that it exists. A lot has happened in two years, plus many of you are new around these parts and may not have known that Google was even doing a rewards/survey app that you could earn cash from. (more…)
Google just pinged us to point out that they made some changes to their Google Play Developer Program Policies this morning. While we aren’t developers, we still thought everyone should be aware of the changes. So, here they are. (more…)
This morning, Google announced that Play Music would be receiving an update (v6.0.1942S) that introduced free, ad-supported radio for those who aren’t paying $10 a month for All Access. That update is rolling out now and we have the .apk should you want to update today. (more…)
Last week, Google started a new “Free app of the week” program for the newly launched family section of Google Play. They started off with a Daniel Tiger game, but have now followed that up with a game called Toca Hair Salon 2. It’s a $3 game, so if you have kids, you may want to give it a look.
In the game, kids get to style the heck out of people’s hair, run their own salon, and choose from six different characters. Fun times. (more…)
This morning, Cyanogen and Playphone announced a new partnership that would allow Cyanogen to distribute the Playphone Game Store in “key international markets.” (more…)
During Google I/O, Google announced a new “Family” category for Google Play that would help parents direct their kids to content suited best for them. These new family sections, which are now live on the web version of Google Play (or are just now being highlighted), feature filters for age and interests, but Google also plans to push through a better ratings system and feature special pages for top kiddie characters, like Peppa Pig.
