It's a 99 cent bonanza this week. Yes, that's the going price for lots of great apps that normally fetch quite a bit more than that. We've got an app or two that go a little over, but plenty that go under too, so if you're looking to save some money, you've come to the right place.
As if timed with WWDC, Apple makes a hugely visually appealing game its free App of the Week.

Meanwhile, we've got a few titles that aren't so heavy on the graphics, but are straight up fun with an emphasis on the free, so let's dive in. And for you productivity or shutterbug types, we've got a couple things for you too.
