Deals on offer
Google is offering truck-loads of offers on the first birthday of its tremendously successful app store. There are mind-boggling deals on everything that one can think of - games, TV shows, movies, books, and music.

The offers include $15 gift card from Fancy, a sign-in partner of Google, 10 percent discount on, free soundtracks, and movie rentals at 99-cents.

Google had rebranded its Android market as Google Play and relaunched it last March. It was aimed at putting the disparity at works while offering apps, e-books, and games to its Android users across a wide range of devices.

All the offers on the plate are listed on this page: Google Play Store. The offers hold true for the complete week and you ought to head for there at the earliest, lest you want to let go of the opportunity.

“Don’t delay in picking up these limited-time offers. It’s been an incredible first year and we look forward to sharing the gift of digital diversions for many more to come,” reads the offer, signalling that much more would be in the stores for Android users in near future.

Google Play - Keeping with the tradition
Keeping users in good spirits is nothing short of a tradition at Google. It rolled out similar offers for its users in September after hitting 25 billion downloads. At that time, it provided stupendous discounts on popular apps and promoted collections such as "25 albums that changed the world", 25 banned books, and 25 must own movies.
