Just like happiness, a lot of Android apps come free. But just like life, there are some things that do not. For those apps that aren’t free, we look to sales and price drops. Today we’ll look at the best way to find these free/discounted apps and sort through the general hogwash.
How AppSales Works
AppSales monitors the prices of apps on the Play Store and lists the best deals on its home screen. But the best thing about the app is how customizable it is.
You can hide apps from certain categories, only show heavily discounted or largely installed apps, and more. Plus there’s a watchlist where AppSales will track the price drops and notify you when the app goes free or gets discounted.
1. Sort By Ratings And Discount
With more than a million apps on the Play Store and new apps going free left and right, just wading through them becomes a chore. I know, it sounds like a classic #FirstWorldProblem – “There are so many free apps on the Play Store that I can’t find the best ones”. First world or not, it is still a problem.
So tap the three dotted menu, go to Settings -> Set filters.
Here, set the Minimum discount to 100% if you only want to see free deals.
Below this you’ll see Minimum Downloads. While this isn’t the best factor for quality, it does indicate something, right? You can slide this all the way to 100,000 minimum downloads.
