Seems like a lot of apps on the Google Play Store are either free or at a reduced price for American Thanks Giving Day.

This is cool. This is better than "Shoe giving day" as seen on the TV series Hyperdrive... No,... that was better. :-)

This is like the old days. You have to go out and club your dinner to death before you get to take it home and eat it.

Now we just look in isle 3 and microwave it. :-)

This ones not run by Google, just the odd developer.

Documents to Go

OfficeSuite Pro 6

QuickOffice

SwiftKey 3

TinyCam Monitor Pro

Maybe Shadowgun not sure what the 'normal' price is.

I'm sure there's others too. You just have to look for the "Thanks giving" phase in the description or the words "On sale for limited time" :-)

App-sales.net is a good source for keeping track of what's on sale in the Play store

Good website. One problem I click on power amp which says on sale for 2.49. Go to the store and it's full price?

Kopkiwi: Good website. One problem I click on power amp which says on sale for 2.49. Go to the store and it's full price?


Missed it by "that much" chief.

If you google PowerAmp Unlocker on a desktop web browser and then cross to the right on the returned page and then view the cached Google Play Store page for PowerAmp Unlocker. .....

I have no idea what happens when you sign in to your Google account on this page and whether at some point it 'touches' the realtime page... BUT the cached page is still $2.49 :-)

My coding  experience tells me you'll just end up with the NOW current price from the back-end server. ;-)

In an odd irony, got it on sale today for $3NZD, pretty happy with that.
