Quite often there are sales on Play Store that you may not know about, or you find out that your favorite app was on sale, but it expired. If you don’t follow the web for sales, this’ll happen often to you. Luckily by using 3rd party apps, you’ll be able to track general sales and sales of your favorite apps. AppDeals lets you do just this.
AppDeals is a pretty new app compared to the previously reviewed old dog, AppSales. But it has some features AppSales does not, and works a bit differently so you may want to use AppDeals instead of it. Let’s see why.
Upon launching, you get sales in gorgeous cards. And if they look similar to Reddit Sync‘s to you, well it’s the same developer behind those two apps.
The thing I don’t like about app’s design is the space between days since sale started and the cards, seems like it could be halved.
If you want details about a certain app, simply tap on it.
You get the standard ‘Play Store’ view (although the non-Material one) with price history. I’m not sure on how far back it goes to get the lowest and highest price. In AppSales sharing from this screen would share a link to AppSales’s website with the app. I prefer how it works in AppDeals, it shares the Google Play link to the app directly.
I’m not sure why, but this app features highlights. Highlights contain most popular sales. Well there aren’t that many sales that you need to filter them by most popular.
Now the best part about this app, is how the watch-list works. In AppSales if you wanted to get notified when an app goes to sale, you had to open Google Play, find the app and share it with AppSales.
In AppDeals, you add apps to your watchlist without opening any other app. Simply type the app name in search, and click on Watch. That easy. Once you add an app to watchlist, you can see it in Watchlist tab, and will be notified if it goes on sale. Lovely.
From the settings, you can disable notification for Sales and your Watchlist, change the currency, and set for which App and Game categories you want to get sales info for. Option to Remove the ads and bunch of sharing links.
A specific design for tablets is not really needed in this app, but it’s still there. In landscape view, you get two columns, one with sales and the other with screens and data.
If you want to save money while buying apps, I’ll definitely recommend AppDeals. Compared to AppSales it works and looks better, but can’t tell about the actual sales, which one grabs more from Google Play.

Keep in mind that when calculating the average, ratings don't have the same weight. Performance and design is valued more than regular updates for example.
