If you’re a fan of Android, and a customer of Telstra’s with an Android smartphone, you can now buy Android apps and have them charged to your pre-paid credit or post-paid bill.

Want that latest Android app on your shiny Android smartphone, AND you’re a Telstra customer?

Well, the good news is that Android owners on Telstra, whether they’re pre-paid or post-paid customers, can now have apps charged either to pre-paid credit, or added to a post-paid bill.

That’s really it – it’s not more complicated than that.

Yes, there’s a $20 app limit purchase per pre-paid credit recharge, so your younglings (or yourself) can’t chew through all the credit in an app-alling fashion, leaving you high and dry when you need to make a call.

Post-paid customers will also find their app purchases limited to $100 worth sent to their bills, although if you’ve got the cash to splash and call Telstra, they’ll happily extend that limit for you – after all, you’re the one who has the pay the bill!

Google is also coming to the party with a special sale that gives you up to 50% off a stack of top apps, but as always, it’s only for a limited time, designed to get your trigger finger ready to “accept and buy” as many Android apps as possible during the promotion.

After all, Google’s $25 Play store credit for Nexus 7 purchasers worked a treat in goosing sales in the Google Play store, and a nice 50% price cut certainly won’t hurt, either.

So… if you’re a Telstra customer with an Android smartphone, this may well be your best chance to play, go ogle and discover the secret of app-iness!
