Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you can purchase apps even without owning an Android device.

It's worth a try to buy whatever deals you want now from Google Play.

99% sure you cant, when you are downloading or purchasing an app from the Play Store Website you need to select a device to download it to.

I actually do have a device - a smartphone. The fact that this did not occur to me sooner tells you how much I use my phone. I'll just have to clear all the "not enough memory to install" errors that will pile up in the process but it should work until I run into one that's not compatible.

Edit to add: Well, every app I wanted today (5 total) was also compatible with my phone so I was able to get them.

So I finally got the work I needed to justify getting the tablet. That having been said, mom's cooking her special cheeseburgers tonight and the tablet can wait a few hours.

Yeah! "Rebuild" is a real hoot. Turn-based real-time strategy. Sim City in a Zombie Apocalypse. Dr. Drib will love it. Well worth a quarter, even if you don't replay. (Home page says there are seven possible wining endings, but I've only found six so far...)

IF you a owned a android device and not made a sniping comment mr monkey then you would of known that there where 25x each day of different Apps,books movies to choose from.

So a Grand total of 125 Apps of your choice from the 5 day sale
From the response so far from other posters ,they where more than happy with the good will gesture from google including myself.

I purchased
OfficeSuite Pro 6 + (PDF & HD) normal price -£9.60 -$14.99
Horn -£5.07 - $6.99
Dark knight rises - £4.99- $6.99
Runtime Pro - £3.99 - $3.99
Bus checker UK £2.49 -

Total price before the sale - £26.14/ $32.99

Sale price £2.50 / $1.25

Real cost to me - Nothing as i used some of my $25 free credit from my nexus 7

I would guess that google gave away millions of dollars of media and Apps in that 5 day period to the millions of android mobile phone and tablets users, which plenty of us appreciate.

There's a old proverb in my country - 'Dont look a gift horse in the mouth'

Agreed. I passed on the games because it's not my thing, but some of the apps are very useful, and at 25c there's really no reason not to pull the trigger.

I got a couple of games. For testing purposes. Grabbed a few awesome apps but missed out on some because they weren't compatible with my phone and my tablet didn't arrive till last evening. Still got some sweet deals, though.

I grabbed a couple of simple games and kid's apps. Great to have the ad-free versions.
I also got EzPDF and a couple of other utilities for myself and I also sent a couple to my daughter's new Galaxy Tab.
Altogether I spent around $2.50. Guess I'l'l have to watch my expenses for while now.
