Interesting thing I noted - when I first went in quite early this morning the icons on the promo banner in the Market were different than what is there now (the original banner disappeared and minutes later the current one went up). I noticed on the one that was taken down that the Read It later icon was displayed... Thinking over the ten days we'll be getting some nice apps!

Ten new ones today. Bought 4 yesterday and 4 more today. I agree it will be interesting to tune in over the next 8 days to see what else is offered. The big question is will the App store go for an injunction because they had cut priced apps as a milestone celebration first ;)

For me it is the way it uses my writing style to predict the next word I am likely to use before I even start typing any letters or after the first one.  It can scan your emails, SMSs, & Twitter and learn your common sentence structure.

The keyboard is the width of 3 keys, how can you miss that and hit letters ok Foot in Mouth Maybe you just need it to auto insert a space after a word so you won't have to use it so much.

Oh hang on, if you double tap the space bar it inserts a full stop by default, are you doing that? You can turn that off.

The tablet version has a split keyboard for your left and right hands, or thumbs in my case.

I can't get any of today's to download. I just get Starting Download but they never change to just "Downloading" let alone Installing.

Will keep trying but I have never had this much trouble downloading anything. My normal updates have all updated but the two I bought today won't go anywhere.

EDIT Literally the next time after posting this they both worked.  But I had tried 20+ times before that

What did you download today? Today's offerings don't really seem worthwhile to me.

He posted this at 10.30pm last night, so was actually yesterday :) I agree though, today's selection was pretty average, I got ADW Launcher EX in case I decide I want to use it in the future but apart from that nothing else.

Although there's still almost a week more of offerings to come, i've gotten 12 new apps so far.

Ah, didn't look at the time. My bad. :) I was thinking about grabbing ADW Launcher, seems to be the only useful app there today. If they sold Documents to Go full version key or a Sygic licence for 10c then I am interested.

I got tetris, some motorbike game that looks pretty cool (haven’t played it yet), space physics, which is good fun but bloody hard, and a casual type can-knockdown game.

All good games and a steal at 10c each.

(oh, and I downloaded talking tom for my kids too – had the ad-funded version already, but paying 10c to get rid of the ads was well worth it)
