Each week we scour current Google Play promotions and cherry-pick the best of the best. This week classic game Osmos is on sale, as well as an image editor that’s one of the best you can get on a phone or tablet today.

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!

Games

Osmos HD ($2.99, now $0.99)

Osmos needs little in the way of introduction. This is one of the best-known ambient games out there. You’re a tiny little bubble that needs to assimilate other bubbles and grow to become the largest. You move about by ejecting particles, which also makes you smaller. You can control the passage of time (make it go faster or slower). The ambient soundtrack is addictive on its own, and combined with the gameplay, you get a truly wonderful experience.

Get it now—seriously. And share the joy with your friends, because this sale may not last long.

Vritra ($1.99, now $0.99)

A futuristic side-scrolling shooter featuring… dragons. Four kinds of them, too. This is not a very well-known game, and now is a good chance to get to know it for half off. The soundtrack is fun, and the graphics are reminiscent of classic side-scrolling shmups (shoot’em ups).

FireJumpers – Wildfire RTS ($1.99, now $0.99)

A real-time strategy title with an interesting look. I wouldn’t call it pixelated or retro — it looks more like a top-down view at a Lego set. The subtle shading makes the topography “pop” — it’s very easy to see where the hills and valleys are. The subject matter is as unique as the graphical style: It’s about firefighting. So it’s a fighting game, yes, but your enemy is fire, not other people or countries. An interestingly peaceful take on the genre.

Apps

Handy Photo ($1.99, now $0.99)

Writing this column can be expensive, since almost every week I end up buying something myself. I already own Osmos HD, so this week I just had to get Handy Photo. I’m a sucker for advanced image editing apps, and while Snapseed is both free and advanced Snapseed Combines Power With Elegance For A Gorgeous Image Editing Experience [Android] Snapseed Combines Power With Elegance For A Gorgeous Image Editing Experience [Android] Editing photos on a smartphone or tablet is fun, but it's more often than not a heavy-handed process. Since you have a small screen to work with, most image editors don't let you make fine-grained... Read More I have to say that Handy Photo looks even more sophisticated. If you’re not satisfied with Instagram’s heavy-handed editing, Handy Photo might be what you’re after.

TuneSync ($5.99, now $2.99)

Android and iTunes aren’t always the best of friends. TuneSync helps them get along better: It lets you sync your iTunes music files, playlists, and album are to your Android device — and it does so using Wi-Fi, so no cables required.

    I bought the pc version way back when it was in the second humble bundle and I agree it's awesome, so I didn't hesitate buying it on android too.

    I was partially mistaken, it is still on sale for 50% off at $1.99. I primarily wanted to point out that the price you have in your post isn't accurate anymore.

      Thanks for the heads up! Yup, sales tend to be very temporary affairs, sadly. ;)
