Google has announced today that it has surpassed the 25 billion download mark for Android apps and games on its Google Play platform. To celebrate, the company is offering some generous discounts for the next five days.

Running with that "25" theme, Google is offering an assortment of apps for only 25 cents each. In addition, there will be special collections available for purchase that commemorate the occasion, such as 25 movies you must own, 25 banned books, 25 albums that changed the world, and Google's 25 top-selling magazines.

Google Play was introduced in March of 2012 as a re-branded merging of the Android Market and the Google Music service. It's now home to 675,000 apps and games for the Android — more than double what it had only one year ago.
