Final Day of Android Market App Sale

The final day of Google's 10 billion app download celebrations has arrived with the search engine giant offering 12 premium Android apps for 10 cents.

The apps being offered for rock bottom pricing on the Android Market include Camera ZOOM FX, Shine Runner, TileStorm HD, Star Chart, Talking Ben the Dog, Apparatus, Color & Draw for kids phone, Hyper Jump, Sentinel 3: Homeworld, Majesty: Fantasy Kingdom Si, Puffle Launch and HEAVY GUNNER 3D.

Google has been providing 10 cent apps for the past 9 days to mark the 10 billion download milestone achieved by Android Market. The company had said while announcing the milestone that users were downloading 1 billion apps from Android Market every month.

The Apple iTunes App Store has the same per month download rate but is on the verge of breaching the 20 billion app downloads mark.

Android Market is now home to almost 500,000 apps and the number is expected to rise as the platform continues to dominate the smartphone scene. A recent Nielsen study revealed that Android dominates the US smartphone market. The most used app by Android users continues to be Facebook, after the Android Market app.
