Apps on Google Play are on “super discount” mode. Last week Google was celebrating its 25 Billion Downloads and giving away top paid apps daily at 25 cents, while other apps like Swiftkey 3 were having its season sale at 75% off. You too must have scooped up some great apps at this opportunity . Just as Google Play ended its celebration party, developers of X-Plane thought “let’s put it on discount too” or wait “let’s just give it for free!”
X-Plane 9 is claimed to be the best flight simulator available on Android and now you can enjoy the experience for free, after it dropped the $2.99 price tag. The app is available on a freemium model, you will initially get 10 different types of aircraft with the free download but there are in-app purchases available for 43 more planes.
The free download includes the following features:
• 6 scenery regions included (15 more available for purchase)
• 10 different aircraft of varying types (43 more available for purchase)
• Fly at Dawn, Day, Dusk, Night
• Fly in VFR/IFR conditions from clear skies to overcast.
• You control the weather!
• Simulated system failures!
• Bird Strikes!
• Multiplayer over WiFi!
• Installs right to your SD card (Froyo/2.2 support required)
The developers surely want everyone to get a taste of this app, and then addicted users are going to make the purchases to try out new stuff. In my opinion this concept is good for developers as well as users. So just grab the app and enjoy the ride!
