Google Play hits 25 BILLION downloads, throws an app sale to celebrate
Quick heads-up that the official Android blog has announced that the Play Store has passed the latest app-download milestone, this time crossing the 25 billion mark. If that seems quite soon after the 10 billion mark, hit the graph pictured above to see a good example of an exponential curve... Anyways, to commemorate this there is going to be a 5-day app sale starting later today with lots of the choicest apps selling for 25c. Be sure to check it out.
Finally, and I don't want to be alarmist here, but if that curve keeps going I see a celebratory app sale for a trillion app downloads in our not-to-distant future where individual apps costs $10 each on sale. If you follow that logic forward the only conclusion is mind-numbing wallet agony. I don't want to live in that dystopian vision of the future, so I'm making a start on my protest banner before 25c games distract me from the real issue issue here.
