Google has announced that their Google Play Store has passed 25 billion application downloads. The huge milestone comes after Google announced a total of 15 billion application downloads back in May of this year.  To celebrate, Google has launched a new promotion where select titles will be available for just $0.25 each.

Among the collection of discounted apps are titles from some of the world’s top developers including Gameloft, Electronic Arts, Rovio, runtastic, Full Fat and more. The Google Play Store will also be offering special collections of media, like 25 must-own movies, 25 banned books, 25 albums that changed the world and 25 top-selling magazines, all at special prices.

Google Market was first launched back in March of 2009 and started with approximately 2,500 application. Earlier this year, Google Market became the Google Play Store and it now offers a massive collection of over 675,000 applications to choose from. This latest promotion is a great opportunity to get a lot of great Android apps and games at a very low price. Act fast though, as it is only scheduled to last for five days.
