EA is offering what can be considered two of the finest mobile gaming deals of the week. For a limited time, Dead Space and Plants vs. Zombies have been reduced to $0.99 on Android. EA is calling this a “daily deal,” so it’s a good idea to jump on this at some point before Monday is over.
EA is using these games to promote its Daily Deals widget. The widget keeps you informed on any sales EA may be having. It also serves as a way to continuously promote EA Mobile games in general. It sounds harmless enough, but reviews in Google Play regarding this widget state otherwise.
Users are complaining about this widget requesting personal information that’s not explicitly stated in its Google Play description. This app reportedly requests access to your device’s serial number and other apps that are installed to improve the overall experience. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like the games offered in the widget differ depending on your device’s compatibility.
Based on those comments, you may be better off sticking with the games.
