Free OS & Android App – Injustice: Gods Among Us

Posted by on October 12, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Free OS & Android App   Injustice: Gods Among Us

This is a bit of a different post from our usual fair. Usually when we post app deals, they are something that costs money and are now free for a limited amount of time. Instead, I am posting about an app that should cost money, yet it is free for both Apple and Android devices. You following me?

Injustice: Gods Among Us is a title you may be familiar with from the consoles. It will cost you at least $20 to buy it for a console, yet the game in almost all its glory is free to play on both android and OS devices.

I also found this link for downloading Injustice onto your Kindle as well, should you have one of those.

Here is a quick rundown of the game. You collect superhero and super villain cards. Each character has a special ability that may benefit just them, or your entire team. A team consists of three super heroes or villains that fight together in a battle. They fight one at a time, and you tag them in and out, as you like. Each character has three super abilities and an energy bar fills them. You can upgrade these abilities for more damage. Characters can also be made elite by purchasing additional forms of their card – almost a form of layering.

You can also buy (or win/earn) gear cards to equip on your characters. That gear can also be upgraded using money and shards. Shards come from other gears you have shattered so choose your gear wisely. When a gear reaches level 11, it will evolve into a higher gear form with a new ability.

You can battle in an online system against other player’s armies or against the computer where you earn characters and far more experience and gold. Log out and back in each day to earn money, energy crystals, and characters. There are missions each day for online play and ranking well online earns you stuff each week.

This game is mind-blowingly awesome. The graphics are incredible, the superpowers are inventive (try Green Lantern’s level 3), and the addiction level is over the top. While the game has occasional glitches that need to be worked out, this game is so awesome it should not be free. The only reason this game gets any bad ratings from anyone is glitches that pissed people off or people feeling entitled to certain things from a game they are not even paying for. That being said, it still ranks a 4.4/5 on the Google Play Store.

This game is seriously better than any game I have paid for on my iPhone or my iPad. Do not waste your money on paid games… get this free.

P.S. Yes, there are in game purchases if you want. They are not necessary. We rank in the top 4% regularly without in game purchases.

P.P.S. I hate Doomsday.

Google Play Store: Get Daft Punk: Random Access Memories Album For $1.99

Posted by on October 2, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Google Play Store: Get Daft Punk: Random Access Memories Album For $1.99

Thursdays seem like a good day to listen to some tunes. Friday is almost here, which means that the weekend is merely a few days away! Daft Punk fans, you can now get their 2013 album, Random Access Memories, on the Google Play Store for just $1.99! Each song usually costs $1.29 to download, so this is a pretty great deal. This album currently costs $7.99 on iTunes, and the audio CD is $10 on Amazon. Plus, since this is a download, you’ll be listening to this new Daft Punk album soon after your purchase!

Featuring hit songs like Get Lucky, this album is a real bargain for $1.99. If you’ve turned on your radio at all during the past year, it’s likely that you’ve heard this song a few times.

I was a big fan of Get Lucky when it was first released. Like any song that gets mass radio play, I eventually tired of the song, but I’m curious about the rest of this album, since I enjoy some Daft Punk every once in a while. After all, I first heard of them back when I was in elementary school (this was the late 90’s)!

Another fun song on this album is Lose Yourself To Dance, which is a collaboration with Pharrell Williams. You can preview all of the songs in Random Access Memories by clicking here.

I’ve listed a brief review of this album from a satisfied Google Play customer below:

For the very first time, yesterday, I sat down and listened to the whole album, beginning to end, with no breaks. All I can say is incredible. Wow. My top 2 favorite tracks: “Giorgio by Moroder” and “Contact”

If you want to enjoy some new tunes from Daft Punk today, then check out this deal! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Google Play Store Freebies: Get Batman Arkham Origins & Assassin’s Creed Pirates For Free (Reg. $5 Each)

Posted by on September 10, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Google Play Store Freebies: Get Batman Arkham Origins & Assassins Creed Pirates For Free (Reg. $5 Each)

Looking for fun new games to play on your Android device? Then check out Batman Arkham Origins and Assassin’s Creed Pirates as both of these are free for a limited time on the Google Play Store. They usually cost $4.99 each to download.

Click here to download Batman Arkham Origins @ Play.Google.com now

Click here to download Assassin’s Creed Pirates @ Play.Google.com now

For all of you iOS users, don’t despair! Although there is no word on how long it has been free, looking around the App Store on my iPhone, I found that both of these are also currently free there as well with loads of reviewers posting how much they love both. In fact, I gave both games a whirl on my iPhone and  I have to say that I was the most impressed with the graphics and smoothness of the Batman game. For some reason, I initially thought that the Batman game would be more like The Simpson’s Tapped Out but it’s actually very different. Instead, you need to complete missions around Gotham City and luckily, there is a handy tutorial to teach you just how to do that. This is definitely the perfect game for any Batman fan and in fact, when I showed my hubby the game, he said: “this is pretty cool!”

It’s cool, indeed, especially since the next Batman game won’t be coming out until 2015, so at least in the meantime, there is something to keep you Batman fans appeased. Google Play Store Freebies: Get Batman Arkham Origins & Assassins Creed Pirates For Free (Reg. $5 Each)

Assassin’s Creed Pirates is slightly different but the concept is similar. It seems to me like although Batman Arkham Origins can easily be played on a phone, especially one as small as the iPhone, Assassin’s Creed, on the other hand, would be better suited on a tablet. When I first launched the game, it seemed very two dimensional but the very first task throws you right in the midst of the ocean and asks you to navigate a ship. The graphics definitely impressed me the most as I certainly didn’t expect as many details as there was in the scenery. One of the biggest differences between the PlayStation 4 and the third console was the level of details, such as random leaves rolling around, more pronounced waves in the ocean and in fact, I noticed the same kind of details when playing this game on my phone.

Both are definitely worth a download, especially since they’re free. Be sure to let us know in the comments section which game is your favourite!

Google Play Store: Up to 85% Off Android Games

Posted by on August 4, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Google Play Store: Up to 85% Off Android Games

Google Play Store is hosting their summer sale currently with up to 85% off games for your android device. The list of games just refreshed on the weekend, so enjoy an entire new list of games if you looked at the sale earlier this summer.

There are 22 games on sale, but rather than give you a list that you can easily see for yourself by clicking through the above link, I will talk about some of the games I have played and some I want to play. Unfortunately, Google does not mention the original prices of these games.

The Game of Life$0.50

I grew up with the board game version of this and I loved it. When no one would play with me, I would even play it by myself. Sometimes I had so many kids I had to ‘adopt’ an extra vehicle to tow them all around. I also have the iPhone version of this game, which is a lot of fun. It can be a bit repetitive, but I still do not think I have landed on all the squares. I really like the storybook of your life at the end.

Where’s My Water?$0.99

This game is nuts in a good way. I love how it combines puzzles, coordination, and a need for speed on some levels as well. It is a great game for adults and good for older kids as well. I especially like the hidden duck feature, as you want to spend more time on each level or revisit levels you have already completed just to find them all.

Final Fantasy V$7.99 (50% off)

This game makes me want to steal my husband’s Dell Venue 8 just so I can play it. The graphics look great and I just love Final Fantasy story lines. The game has nearly 6,500 5/5 star ratings alone! If there is one game in this sale that I want, it is most certainly this one.

Duck Duck Moose Reading$1.07

I could not help but mention this game because of the super cute name! It is a phonics reading adventure game for your children with a wonderful zoo theme. It looks like a fun game to help children master reading.

Pick up these games and more in the Google Play Store sale. If you have any game recommendations from the sale list, then please comment!

Word Lens Translator App Now Free On iTunes & Google Play Store (Was $5)

Posted by on June 5, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Word Lens Translator App Now Free On iTunes & Google Play Store (Was $5)

The internet is currently abuzz with the Word Lens Translator app because it’s now free on both iTunes and the Google Play Store. It was originally priced at $4.99 and since there is no word on when this awesome app will go back to its full price, I suggest you quickly download it as soon as possible.

The World Lens Translator is extremely handy because it uses your device’s camera to instantly translate any printed words. Say you’re travelling abroad and you don’t know what the writing on a certain sign outside means. Simply launch the app, point the camera at the sign and prepare to be amazed because it will translate the writing for you. Plus, the app can also translate words that have been reversed (spelled backwards) or can erase words from the sign.

Upon first downloading the app, you are only able to reverse or erase. However, be sure to download all of the language packs by tapping on the world map icon on the bottom left of the screen as these are all free right now. You can get the following languages: Russian, Portuguese, German, Italian, French and Spanish, although keep in mind that the app is only able to translate to and from English. Here’s to hoping that the developers of the app are working on more languages packs and the ability to cross-translate between all the languages as well!

I tried this app on my iPhone on a granola bar I had lying around and I’m happy to report that it worked really well. The text was instantly translated, though the only tip I have is that you need to make sure to keep your hand steady over the text you are trying to translate.

It’s definitely one of those must-have apps even if you don’t see yourself using it right now because you never known when you might need it. So just download it now for free and tuck it into a folder on your device for future use. Word Lens Translator App Now Free On iTunes & Google Play Store (Was $5)

Google: Chromecast – Stream Websites, Netflix and More from your Android or iOS to your TV for only $39!

Posted by on April 1, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Google: Chromecast   Stream Websites, Netflix and More from your Android or iOS to your TV for only $39!

Chromecast has come to save you from terrible interfaces and expensive equipment. Stream with ease for only $39!

Chromecast! I’ve been wanting a Chromecast for a long time but they were only available in the U.S. I was going to get one when I went to the states in December but I didn’t end up going. Then I was going to get one when I went to the states last month but they went and released it in Canada. So now I can buy them by the bucket load and have them delivered right to me!

Right, so what is a Chromecast, why do you want one and why is it on a deals site? A Chromecast is a little stick you plug in to the HDMI port on your HDTV or computer monitor. From there you can stream stuff from your Android phone to your TV. Simple as that. Plug the stick in, open up a Chromecast enabled app on your Android phone, hit the Chromecast button in the app and it pops up on your TV. It had been just the Google Chrome browser, YouTube and Netflix that you could be Chromecasted but Google recently opened up the API so tons of apps are becoming Chromecast enabled. There are even a bunch of music streaming services opening it up so you can play music fro your favourite service through your TV sound system.

That all sounds good but why do you, the consumer, want this? Partially for ease of use and partially for the price. We’ll get to price later so let’s talk ease of use. I don’t know how you watch Netflix now but if it’s on your TV, there is a chance that the experience sucks. if you are using a smart TV with a Netflix or YouTube app, for example, I can almost promise that it stinks. Smart TV apps are almost universally clunky, slow and outdated. A lot of Android apps are the opposite of that. They are intuitive and kept up to date. Chromecast let’s you use the touchscreen interface of your Android phone or tablet to control what’s on your TV.

And there is price. Chromecast is only $39. That’s right. $39. Compare that to almost any streaming box like a Roku, Boxee, Apple TV or WD Live TV and it’s going to be cheaper by at least $60. That’s why it’s on this site. Even when it’s not on sale, it’s over 50% cheaper than anyone else. And while another box might have Netflix and YouTube and maybe a few other apps, the Chromecast supports any app that enables it. Making your app Chromecast enabled is supposed to be super easy to just about every video or audio app out there is enabling it. If your favourite app isn’t Chromecast enabled, drop the developer an email and make sure they get on it!

If you want to stream stuff from the internet of your personal media library to your TV Chromecast is, without doubt, the way to go.

Shipping is free

Google Play Store 2-Year Anniversary: Free Apps & Discounts

Posted by on March 6, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Google Play Store 2 Year Anniversary: Free Apps & Discounts

Here’s a promotion worth smiling about: in celebration of their two-year anniversary, the Google Play Store has a number of apps available for absolutely free! They also have a couple of deals on movies.

If you’re looking for a truly unique game to try on your Android device, then Badland definitely fits the bill. Requiring a lot of tapping (what app doesn’t?), it’s the kind of game that initially has you wondering if really, there is more to the game, but then once you progress through the levels and the challenges are significantly increased, you suddenly find yourself incredibly hooked.

Here are some of the other apps you can get for free for a limited time only:

And while not free sadly, you can also save up to 50% off the following movies:

Be sure to keep checking the Google Play Store every day for more free apps and deals, although there is no word yet on when their anniversary sale is set to end.

To use this coupon, download and install GoLauncher Ex for free at the link above, go to Menu>Properties>About Go Launcher Ex> enter the code. That will get you GoLauncher Prime for free!

One of the most touted features of Android is the ability to customize it. You can customize it on the simplest levels, like choosing where you put your app icons and widgets all the way up to coding your own custom fork. Most people hit their limit at a new launcher. The launcher is basically what you see when you look at your Android phone. Your home screen, your app drawer, that is all based on the launcher. One of the more popular launchers is GoLauncher Ex. How popular is it? How about over 100,000,000 downloads? It’s literally one of the most popular apps, period.

It is free and it works fantastically. You can get other GoLauncher themes to customize even more. You want everything to be pink, get a pink GoLauncher theme. It’s as easy as that. The best part about this is that GoLauncher Ex is completely free. Of course, you don’t get 100,000,000 downloads of something and not figure out how make money. GoLauncher makes money in part from people buying GoLauncher Prime. This is what you get for free with this coupon.

GoLauncher Prime is normally $6. It gets rid of GoLauncher ads, give you app lock, gestures and some cool new compwiz-like (for the Linux geeks out there) transitions.

Amazon Canada: 50% Off 2nd OUYA Controller When You Buy The Console

Posted by on October 17, 2013 at 2:00 PM

Amazon Canada: 50% Off 2nd OUYA Controller When You Buy The Console

I feel like there should be a Macho Man Randy Savage but too soon, too soon. Instead, I’ll just tell you that you can get 50% off an OUYA controller when you buy the console.

When you go to buy the console, just add the controller to your cart and the discount will be applied at checkout. The controller is normally $49.99, but you’ll get it for $24.99. All in all, you will only pay $124.98 for the console and two controllers. That’s a great deal.

If my wife hadn’t specifically asked me to get her a new camera and gift cards for clothes this Christmas, I think I’d get her this. She isn’t a gamer other than an occasional bout of Sims 3 addiction and casual games on her Android phone. The OUYA is all about bringing casual Android games to your TV. There are almost 500 Android games that have been optimized for the OUYA, and more are always coming on board.

At $99.99 for a console and, with this deal, $24.99 for a controller, this is a great alternative gaming console. The PS4 and xBox One are expensive. If you don’t want to drop that kind of money on a console, the OUYA is a great choice. It’s also perfect for people who only do phone gaming. Casual gaming is a huge segment of the gaming world, and the OUYA caters to the people who are in that segment perfectly.

Google Play Canada Store: Get 50%+ Off 7 Great Android Indy Games

Posted by on August 31, 2013 at 5:00 PM

Google Play Canada Store: Get 50%+ Off 7 Great Android Indy Games

The internet is the great equalizer between independent games and the big guys. Level the playing field a bit more by supporting the little guys by getting 50% or more off with the Google Play Store!

The internet is seriously the great equalizer between the big companies and the little game makers. It used to be that if you wanted to sell a game, you needed to have it distributed in stores and that pretty much only happened for big companies. There were some independent developers out there like the amazing crew at Pendulo Studios, but they were usually stuck behind something else. Nowadays, with the internet, the playing field is a little more even. Yeah, most companies are still gonna put the big name games up front, but it’s easier to find those weird, independent games that we all fall in love with at one point in our gaming lives.

If there is anything that can rival what the internet has done it’s smartphones and tablets and, if I were going to get political for a moment, Android. Anyone can put anything on Android (as long as it isn’t malware) and sell it or give it away. A few of those small game makers rise above the rest and, in this instance, get featured in a sale on the Google Play Store. These are the games:

I don’t know the before prices but they are all at least 50% off. Also, the prices are converted to CAD from USD. If the exchange rate changes a lot, the prices might change in kind.

I immediately picked up Combo Crew based solely on the fact that they have Viewtiful Joe (!!) in the logo. If Capcom thinks this game is good enough to let Viewtiful Joe in it, I’m down. Combo Crew is 50% off. The other one I grabbed is The Room, which is already a huge success and is a really cool looking puzzle game. It just recently (yesterday or the day before) got an expansion to add another puzzle to the game. This one, I think, was a $4 game at one point, so you could be saving up to 75% if that price is correct and if it stayed there.

Once you’ve picked up some of these awesome games, take a look around the Play store and find some other independent games. Let us know what your favourite indy game is so we can all check them out and support the small developers making awesome games.

Posted by on August 30, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Google Play Canada Store: Nexus 4 16GB Now $249 (Save $110)

Google Play Store has substantially dropped the price on their Google Nexus 4. The 8GB has already sold out, but they still have the 16GB in stock for only $249, originally $359. You save $110!

The phone is loaded with tons of features. It has access to the Google store, which has a ton of free games in it. It also uses Google Maps, which is one of the best map systems out there. The Nexus 4 is the first phone with 360° panoramas and it charges wirelessly – no cords needed!

This is a substantial price drop from the previous price and certainly worth picking up if you are in the market for a brand new unlocked phone. It is best to buy your phone outright so that you can get the best plan possible without having to be on contract. Then, you can change plans whenever you see a better one. Be sure to check out the article 3 Types Of Cell Phone Plans Compared to see how you can save money through different cell plans.

I believe shipping is free – I demoed a cart as far as I could, and was not getting shipping charges on this deal.

We are living in an awesome time. The internet is producing companies like Amazon’s Create Space and Kindle Direct Publishing so that you can publish and sell your books online and in stores.

You get to keep the rights to your music, you get all the royalties, but they do all the hard work pushing the track out to all the stores. I know from doing the book publishing thing that it is infuriatingly difficult to get your book on all the major platforms. Amazon wants something different than Kobo who has a requirement that doesn’t work with iBooks whose Naziesque rules don’t make any sense at all. And this is just eBooks. I can’t imagine the foolishness you’d need to go through for music.
