September 26, 2012 - Written By Alexander Maxham

It was only last December in which the Google Play Store reached it’s 10 billion download milestone, and it had a nice $0.10 sale that lasted about a week. It featured some great apps like Swiftkey X (now updated to Swiftkey 3), Asphalt 6, and SoundHound just to name a few. Now just nine months later the Play Store has more than doubled the number of downloads. It originally took 3 years to get to 10 billion downloads and now they’ve hit 25 billion. Guess there’s no slowing down for Android or the Google Play Store right?

For the next five days, the Google Play Store will be having a sale with apps being discounted to $0.25.

Every day you’ll be able to choose from a collection of apps from some of the world’s top developers including Gameloft, Electronic Arts, Rovio, runtastic, Full Fat and more. And all for just 25 cents. We’ll also be offering some special collections like 25 movies you must own, 25 banned books, 25 albums that changed the world and our 25 top selling magazines, all at special prices.

So far we have no idea what apps we’ll see in this sale, but we can expect the first few to go on sale later today. So keep checking the Play Store. What apps are you hoping will be on sale? Anyone up for Asphalt 7 at $0.25?

Anyone surprised at the major increase in downloads from the Play Store? The Play Store currently has 675,000 apps, and 25 billion downloads, that equals roughly on average 37 thousand downloads per app! So take a moment and pat yourself on the back, because every one of you have helped Google Play reach this milestone, including the developers.
