Underworld Digital Movie on Sale on Google Play

Underworld Digital Movie on Sale on Google Play

Oct 8, 2016

Lycan or vampire?

Here’s a treat for fans of the Underworld movie franchise and/or Kate Beckinsale me: the first movie in the series, Underworld, is on sale on the Play Store — for only $0.99.

Underworld begins the story of Selene, a vampire who, for a variety of reasons, works to eliminate out Lycans. As the movie progresses, our heroine has to make a choice.

At this price, it’s a great opportunity to own an integral part of the franchise, one which became its springboard. Not a fan yet? Here’s a chance to become one.

We don’t know how long the sale is going to run, so it makes sense to get in while one can.

Google Play Adds Family Sharing Feature

Google Play Adds Family Sharing Feature

Jul 27, 2016

Google Play has expanded greatly beyond being simply an application repository; it is a full-fledged entertainment and content hub that rivals the best from competing platforms.

Now, it is becoming even better with a timely update that allows folks to share specific content with other family members.

Dubbed the “Family Library,” the new feature allows folks to select what purchased content can be shared with up to six relatives. As the presser sates, one can now “share what one loves with the people one loves.”

Some pertinent points (quoted from the announcement blog post):

Share across your family’s devices
Today’s families have a lot of devices, and it should be easy to share content no matter where we are or what we’re doing. Everyone in my family loves the Star Wars movies and we all want to be able to watch them, on our phones, tablets, laptops, or TV. All purchases added to Family Library are available across Android devices, and movies, TV shows, and books can be enjoyed on iOS devices and the web.

Easily manage sharing and family purchases
As with most family matters, flexibility and choice is important. With Family Library, you can choose which items you want to share and which to keep to yourself—for example, I’ll probably keep my collection of comic books in my personal library. Flexibility is also built into your purchasing options. When you sign up, you’ll select a credit card to share as your family payment method, but your family members will always have the option of buying stuff with their personal credit cards or gift cards. And for your younger family members, you’ll have the option to approve each of their purchases.

Share a Music subscription with your family
Finally, if your family loves music, you can also subscribe to the Google Play Music family plan. On this plan, up to six family members can stream millions of songs on demand for $14.99 a month. We launched the family plan late last year, and today we’re expanding it to Ireland, Italy, Mexico, and New Zealand. And you can now sign up on the web, in addition to your Android device.

The new service begins it’s roll-out to select countries (Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, UK and the US) today.

Closure (Jack Randall Series Book #1) is Free on Google Play and Kindle Store

Feb 10, 2016

Jack Randall fans — current and future — will like that the first book in the detective series, Closure, is currently free on Google Play Books and Kindle Store.

When a prominent lawyer is shot while waiting at a suburban stop sign it sets off a nation-wide manhunt for an elusive killer. Special Agent Jack Randall of the FBI finds himself appointed to track down and stop the shooter. Not by his superiors, but by the killer himself.

As more bodies fall the shooter takes his message to the press, earning the support of the public with his choice of targets and confounding the FBI at every turn. From the desert of Nevada to the urban jungle of New York City, Jack and his team follow the trail of bodies and haunting messages left behind by the killer. With the pressure to find him mounting on Jack, the assassin’s crimes grow bolder, and his message more sinister and closer to home.

It becomes clear to Jack that in order to find the shooter, he may have to look inside his own past, and become the man he was years ago.

The book is usually priced at $5.00 on Google Play.
