Ah, it’s Wednesday so that means we get some cheap deals in Google Play and this week it’s Handy Photo and Construction Simulator 2014 which are being discounted to just 20c each.

Google Play App Deal of the Week

Handy Photo

There’s no shortage of photo editing or enhancement apps, and yet I can’t stop buying and trying them all. Handy Photo will be no different and it looks like it’s pretty good.

It’s a fully featured photo editor with the ability to crop, move and remove objects from your photos. There’s filters and frames like any other app, but it’s the remove and ‘un-cropping’ option that fills in missing details that makes it stand out for me – check it out:

There is a limit to the resolution of photo you can edit depending on how much RAM you have, but 2GB of RAM gets you access to edit 24MP photos.

It’s a decent looking app, so if you, like me, want to edit some shots check this one out while the sale lasts.

Google Play Game Deal of the Week

Construction Simulator 2014

I loved these games back in the early naughties when they began to proliferate, and Construction Simulator 2014 for Android is a great mobile version of the classic Construction Simulator style game.

Think of this as a trainer for the big Construction Simulator game from German developers astragon Entertainment who are selling Construction Simulator 2 for $7.99 as their premium title on Google Play. The game, like the title suggests sees you taking on a building projects ranging from the humble home to a skyscraper using equipment from Liebherr, Man and Still (Stihl?).

The game has in-app purchases making for a slight bump in experience, but Android TV fans will be pleased to see support for their platform with some devices listed as compatible including the Nexus Player.

If you ever got the urge to build then this is probably a good place to start. Check it out on Google Play while the sale lasts.



Dan’s Deal of the Week

This week you can grab HD Screen Recorder – No Root Pro for absolutely nothing – normally $1.49 – making for a great deal.

It’s pretty simple, it lets you capture what’s happening on your screen and with between 10K-50K users already having downloaded it, it seems pretty decent. Want the full run down? Well, the description lays it out:

You can save screen view without ROOT on Android 5 and above.

The screen recorder Pro is a ad-free and unlimited screen image recording application.
Voice and Camera recording support. The presentation is tailored to produce videos that show the use of educational videos and footage.

If this sounds like something you’d like, check it out now in Google Play.
