Google is launching a special sale offer to mark the one year anniversary of its Play application store service.
The company said that it would be offering users a series of discounts and free offers on applications, games and video content.
The sale is part of an effort by Google to mark the one-year anniversary of its mobile application storefront.
"It was just a year ago today that we launched this amazing shop on the interwebs to offer the best in digital content," Google said in announcing the offer.
"Since the best parties are the ones that send you home with a present, today we celebrate our birthday with a festive goodie bag full of gifts."
Since its launch, Google's application service has been the subject of controversy. While Google's open approach to its application service has eased the transition for application developers, the company's relatively lax approach to policing its ecosystem has also made Android a prime target for malware infections.
Last year, Google unveiled a set of tools designed to cut back on malware applications on the Android platform. Though the Play Store has introduced new measures, a number of third-aprty services still offer risky and potentially infected mobile applications.
