10-cent-apps-android
Summary:

Got an Android device and 10 cents in your pocket? That’s the right combination to buy one of 10 Android apps for just a dime over the next 10 days. Minecraft, Asphalt 6 and my highly recommended keyboard app, SwiftKey X, are all on sale.

Got an Android device and 10 cents in your pocket? That’s the right combination to buy one of 10 Android apps for just a dime over the next 10 days. This offer appears to be a special promotion through Google — which is celebrating 10 billion total Android app downloads — as there’s a specific Android Market web page rounding up 10 mobile app titles each day.

I caught this news earlier today through Android Central and promptly spent $0.30 to nab Minecraft, Asphalt 6 and FieldRunners HD. Other titles available include SoundHound, Endomondo Sports Tracker, and Sketchbook Mobile to name a few.

I highly recommend SwiftKey X at nearly any price; it’s also available for a dime. The third-party keyboard is well designed, has stellar word prediction and gets smarter about the way you type via the cloud. I wouldn’t wait to pick this, or any of the other apps on sale: the Android Market on my smartphone says there will be 10 days of offers, so these titles are likely to change every day.

    I, too, like SwiftKey X a lot. One thing I’ve not done is allow it access to my GMail in order to improve its predictions (I have allowed it to access to my SMS). I wonder, Kevin, if you have any thoughts on this, re:security particularly in light of the revelations about Carrier IQ?

    1. I’m fine with SwiftKey’s privacy policy, which was always made clear here: http://www.swiftkey.net/privacy The situation differs from CIQ (at least in my opinion) because I always knew the privacy policy of SwiftKey and I chose to opt in. But, it’s personal choice for each of us, so I completely understand your decision not to allow Gmail access.
