Google missed their app and game deal of the week last week thanks to the site wide Google Play Winter Sale they kicked off. This week, Google has returned, albeit a little late, with a new app and game deal with Alarm Clock Pro and The Amazing Spider-Man both reduced to just 20c each this week.
Google Play App Deal of the Week
How’s your alarm clock doing? Not good? Well, maybe Alarm Clock Pro is the answer. It’s an Alarm Clock app that wakes you up to your favourite tunes.
The app is fairly old, having support for Android 2.3 and up and showing screenshots from Android 2.1, but it seems pretty solid in terms of the concept. It gives you an alarm clock with a big LCD display that you can theme with Blue, Cyan, Green, Orange, Pink, Red and Yellow colour options.
Alarm Clock Pro lets you wake up to 11 built-in alarm sounds or you can tell it to use your own MP3 library to give you more a personalised wake up. You can also fall asleep to those same tunes with a sleep timer.
The one really neat trick of the app is it lets you shake for flashlight, a tool we now have in our quick settings, but can be useful to get to first thing in the morning.
If you want to check it out, it’s on Google Play for just 20c for the next week.
Google Play Game Deal of the Week
Spiderman: Homecoming swung into theatres this week and it’s fantastic. If you’re still pining for Andrew Garfields Peter Parker then you can make do with The Amazing Spider-Man from Gameloft which is on-sale for just 20c in Google Play.
Play as Peter Parker as you jump into the second reboot of the Spiderman franchise, featuring The Lizard as the villain of this adventure. Swing, fight, climb and jump your way through 25 missions set in a virtual 3D New York City based on the movie.
It’s an old game, but a decent one. That said it takes up a fair amount of space at 1.5GB in size, so make sure you’ve got enough to spare.
This being Gameloft, you can also expect In-App Purchases, worth between $2.99 – $159.99 per item.
It’s worth a look so check it out for the next week on Google Play.
Dan’s Deal of the Week
I like utilities. I have many that I’ve purchased over the years from bubble levels, to GPS toolboxes and more. This time, I grabbed Compass PRO.
Normally, it’s $4.99, but it’s free for a limited time, so that’s good value. What is it? Well, it’s a compass. It tells you where north is, it has a rotating bezel to set a bearing and follow that.
The only downfall for the app is you obviously need the right hardware in your phone – a compass – to use it. Other than that it’s a decent app…and it’s FREE!.
Grab it while you can on Google Play.
