Since its debut as Android Market back in late October 2008, Google's digital distribution service now hosts almost 3 million apps that have been downloaded more than 50 billion times overall so far. Android Market became Google Play in early March 2012, and now the app store has finally received a "Free App of the Week" section, not long after Google allowed paid apps and games to go on sale temporarily.
The new section can be easily located by scrolling down in the Apps page and is available on both the desktop and mobile variants of the Google Play store. Unfortunately, it looks like the "Free App of the Week" section is only available in the United States for now. Those in other areas can take a look at it using a VPN connection, but it seems the free app can be accessed directly via its Google Play store page from other areas.
This week's featured free app is Cartoon Networks' "Card Wars - Adventure Time" and this deal ends in five days. The game has been downloaded by more than 500,000 users so far and has a 4.2-star rating after being reviewed by more than 96,000 users.
