Because app sales are temporary affairs, by the time you read this, these may no longer be on sale. Worry not: Simply check back next week for some more Android deals!


MoreQuicklyPanel ($1.59, now $0.99)

MoreQuicklyPanel is a A toggle widget in your notification pull-down drawer. Supports KitKat, lets you sport that old-school look on a recent-model phone. You can toggle Wi-Fi, Bl8etooth, Airplane mode, data sync, and more. MoreQuicklyPanel also lets you pick your own colors for the icons, the background, and the separator — as well as move the icons around.

BIG Launcher ($10, now $5)

This is a fun one: If your loved ones (or yourself) find run-of-the-mill Android launchers too overloaded with fiddly features, confusing to use, and generally frustrating — BIG Launcher tries to help. It offers a simple interface for most of the phone’s primary features and lets you get to what you need, quickly.


SketchBook Pro ($4.99, now $2.99)

One of the best-loved drawing apps for Android, now almost half off. With its signature circular interface, over 100 brush presets, and support for pen pressure (if your device supports it), SketchBook Pro gives you lots of tools to play with. Price does not include artistic talent.

SketchBook Mobile ($1.99, now $0.99)

The mini-version of SketchBook, aimed to play nice on your phone. Like its older sibling, it supports pen-only mode for use for Galaxy Note devices. Has pinch-to-zoom, and also lets you pan with two fingers. Supports multiple layers.


Machinarium ($4.99, now $2.99)

The first thing you’ll notice about Machinarium is the utterly unique graphical style. A side-scrolling adventure game, Machinarium recently introduced support for Immersive Mode for KitKat devices, as well as pinch-to-zoom, making it more easy to play on smaller screens.

Animaonline SNES Emulator ($1.99, now $0.99)

Not a game per se, but a gateway to a massive collection of games. Supports network co-op and multiplayer, cheats, shortcuts, and of course, on-screen controls. Very highly rated.

F-Sim Space Shuttle ($4.49, now $0.99)

This is a very particular flight simulator: Not only does it support only one specific aircraft (the Space Shuttle), it supports only one maneuver: Landing the space shuttle. You can either start at 10,000 feet when you’re already aligned with the runway, or at 50,000 feet, before banking into the heading alignment cone. The orbiter glides onto the landing strip, so there are no second chances. Well, there are, really. but you know what I mean.

C.H.A.O.S Multiplayer Air War ($2.99, now $0.99)

A dogfight game where you get to fly a combat helicopter. You get to fly a Black Hawk, a Comanche, and a bunch of other attack choppers. The game bills itself as a “realistic” helicopter simulator — I wouldn’t count too much on realism here, but you will get some pretty impressive explosions, and lovely locations to fly around.
