The Google Play store is celebrating a pretty momentous milestone: 25 billion total downloads since its launch as the erstwhile Android Market in October of 2008. In that time, Google Play has grown from having a handful of apps to now playing host to 675,000.
To mark this occasion, the Play Store is offering up some top tier apps and games, each available for 25¢ with a different crop each day for five days, starting today.
As the Android Official Blog puts it: “We’ll also be offering some special collections like 25 movies you must own, 25 banned books, 25 albums that changed the world and our 25 top selling magazines, all at special prices.”
The 25 billion downloads app sale hit the Google Play Store briefly then disappeared almost as quickly. When the sale is back online, it will appear in the top featured tile in the Google Play store homescreen. Check it out and score some sweet app deals.[Via the Android Official Blog]
