July : Apps/Games now free or reduced

Google Play Monthly DealsI’ll post these lists each month now to keep you all up to date whenever a previously paid app or game is offered for free or at a reduced price in the Play Store. There are always plenty of apps & games that are put on special, sometimes for just a few days, but I will concentrate on just the worthwhile ones that might appeal to our age group. So you won’t find many kiddy games or cute cat wallpapers (but there are always a few good live wallpapers now and then).

Use some of your Google Play credit you have earned using the Google Opinion Rewards app to buy something useful. Note that while I try to ensure the lists are accurate, some apps/games may not always be available in your country. Also, don’t take too long installing any that appeal because they don’t necessarily always STAY free or on special offer for long.

Prices here are always are shown in Australian dollars as this is where I am based – so they are usually cheaper in the US for instance).
