Day 6 of 10 Billion Google App Download Celebration

Android Market celebrations moved into day six as Google published 10 new premium apps available for 10 cents.

The apps offered by Google on day six include Just Me and My Mom, BackStab HD, Jenga, Raging Thunder, Backbreaker Football, Captain America, Endomondo Sports Tracker PR, Great Little War Game and SimCity Deluxe.

To reach 1 billion downloads it took just 20 months - then at a very fast pace - within five months the figure reached 2 billion then just two months to reach 2 to 3 billion, another two months to touch 4.5 billion, two months 6 billion and finally, four months to reach 10 billion downloads.

Google stated users were downloading 1 billion apps every month from the Android Market. The company claims, "None of these apps would have existed if it weren't for the developers who created them."

"Every day, these developers continue to push the limits on what's possible and delight us in the process. For that, we thank them," as posted on the Google Mobile Blog.

Specific apps, sold for $1 and $10, are now available for just 10 cents only during the 10-day celebration as a way to thank all those who download and use the apps available on Android Market.
