All this iPad talk make you want to dress up as the Android robot and mow down Apple gadgets? Download these cheap apps instead

Google's chosen today to rebrand the Android Market as Google Play – and to celebrate, 25 big-name apps and games are just 49p. Take that, Apple.

No, seriously – head over to Google Play (it's the same app/ e-book and movie store under a different moniker) to snap up Android apps and games like popular puzzler World of Goo, Shadowgun, the brilliant, ambient eat 'em-up Osmos and Asphalt 6: Adrenaline.

There's also cooking app Jamie's 20 Minute Meals, music identification app SoundHound and SwiftKey X Keyboard – names familiar from the 10p sale Google had as part of its 10 billion app party not too long ago. Still, it's worth a scroll through the selection of 25 to snag yourself an Android bargain while the rest of the world goes crazy over some extra pixels
