Android Market experiencing issues, 10 cent apps most likely the cause

If you live under a rock and didn't know, Google is giving 10 apps away for just $0.10 ¢ for the next 10 days to celebrate the milestone of 10 billion applications downloaded from their ever growing and popular Android Market. We've been hearing random tips that the Market is experiencing problems for some but today they've been flooding in.

This is a pretty big deal and they've been offering some amazing apps for just $0.10 ¢ and today is day four of the 10 days of apps fun. To see all the current and past applications on sale just hit up our 10 billion link. As you can see from the image above we're having a few issues getting said apps to install. We've had numerous tips and a few of our team members have had similar problems recently.

Today's deals include Shazam Encore and Jelly Defense -- two apps we have been having an extremely hard time getting to install. This is more of a public service announcement than anything to inform our readers to keep trying because most likely the servers are slightly overwhelmed with the huge response from buyers. I don't know about you guys, but I've snatched up most of the $0.10 ¢ apps each day although I own at least half already.

While Google could be making changes, or getting ready to push another update for the Android Market most likely the problems being seen from various users is simply because so many people are downloading these awesome deals at the same time. If it doesn't work give it a try in a few more minutes and most likely you'll be fine. We've since been able to download every app we've wanted so things could be calming down too.

Let us know if you are experiencing similar problems, as this could be something else.

    I’ve been having problems where it wouldn’t verify the game. I bought it, got an email saying my purchase has been completed, but when I try to play, the game tells me to go buy it in the Market…i’m running kwiboo’s v3 ICS on my Nexus S, so I think that may be the issue for me. Searching forums to find a fix, but haven’t found anything so far.

    I fixed the issue by going to google wallet and accepting an updated terms of service agreement, works now!! :)

    I haven’t had any issues today with the Market, although it has been kind of slow.

    I’ve had this issue since day one (or at least issues buying apps). My solution was to buy through the web market, which conveniently also downloads to many devices if I wish.. :)

    unfortunately, +Jacob Sanvhez, I have no agreement thing come up when I log into Google wallet in my browser, so it probably isn’t that.
