I wish the Google Play Store app would finally realize I have more than one device and let me choose which one I want a game or app to download on. It's a pain in the ass to always have to find things from the browser or wait til I'm on that particular device. C'mon Google. These links take me straight to the app.
The prices in the store aren't showing as being discounted for me...
Google Play was having a bit of an issue and updating the app prices took waaaaay longer than it normally does. (in our case it took about 44 hours, it's typically a matter of a couple of hours, Google itself says it may take 24hours at most), so even though most devs did the price drop in time (at least 24 hours earlier than it was supposed to be announced), it didn't show until now. With that said, most (all?) games should have the discounts applied now.
