The Android Market just recently reached the 10 billion download milestone and to celebrate Google has made 10 premium apps available for 10 cents each. Most of the ten apps being offered through the “10 Billion Promo” page on the Market typically range from 99 cents to a few dollars or more, and at ten cents,  the majority of them are must have apps. Here’s what’s on offer:

SketchBook Mobile

Asphalt 6

Color & Draw for kids: phone ed

Endomondo Sports Tracker Pro

Field Runners HD

Great Little War Game

Minecraft Pocket Edition

Paper Camera

SoundHound

Swiftkey X Keyboard

Best iPhone, iPad, & Apple TV game controllers

In comparison, Apple announced in October they have surpassed 18 billion App Store downloads, in addition to 180 million iBookstore downloads, and 16 billion songs from iTunes. Ten billion downloads is definitely a huge milestone for the Android Market, but Google Music certainly has some catching up to do.
