As Google play witnesses the 25 billionth download on its Google Play app store, top apps are being offered to all and sundry for only 25 cents (N40)! You will recall a similar discount offer that took place only last December 2011 when Google Play witnessed the 10 billionth download, and it offered apps for just 10 cents.
The apps would be available for this price for only 5 days, so hurry!!!
Though unconfirmed as of the time of filing this report, Apple has witnessed at least 30 billion downloads from its App store but has not being known to offer such discounts at any time.
Google Play is very much accessible from Nigeria using Visa or Mastercard credit or debit cards from all the major banks.

Twenty-five billion is more than twice the distance, in miles, that the Voyager 1 spacecraft has travelled since its launch 35 years ago. It’s the amount of time, in minutes, that have passed since some of our earliest ancestors began to set foot in Europe. And now, thanks to all of you, it’s a Google Play milestone. We look forward to the next 25 billion.
Expectedly, yours truly has snatched up a number of these apps already. “Awuff no dey run belle !”
