There are tons and tons of app sales going on starting today and lasting all weekend long (and sometimes a bit less than that), but we grabbed a couple from the larger shops who are doing blanket discounts and some smaller highlights in there too. With all the shopping going on today, we figured you'd take your time to getting around to checking out the best app sales, so here you go. Cut yourself another slab of pie, fire up the App Store, and get ready for some deals.

The latest game to offer yet another take on the popular Angry Birds-style bombardment genre, Super Dragon is a goofy game of hurling fireballs and avoiding falling debris in order to regain your missing chompers. This funky physics puzzler stars a superstar dragon named Smokey, who is hellbent on recovering his lost teeth -- but getting them back is trickier and occasionally more aggravating than you might expect, thanks to the unpredictable laws of gravity.
Perhaps you've prepared a meal from an app that made you say "wow," but when is the last time a cooking app itself elicited that response? Panna is a dazzling vision of what's possible when such an app takes the form of a specialty magazine – complete with glossy production values – rather than a barrage of images and steps.

A time to gather together with loved ones, scarf down gluttonous volumes of deliciously cooked foods, and give thanks for all of the great things happening in your life, Thanksgiving is a wonderful once-a-year opportunity to gorge on the spice of life. With lots of family, food, and fun also comes a lot of hard work and more than a little craziness both inside and outside of the kitchen. We aim to make your turkey day smoother one with this selection of helpful apps for planning, prepping, cooking, and keeping everyone happy during this festive holiday.
One of the more successful services in the “freemium” category, Evernote has thrived since its 2007 debut, managing to keep up with almost every new mobile or desktop platform launched ever since. Most recently, the company reinvented its popular iOS and Mac apps with the lofty goal of accessing notes in as little as two taps. But has anything been left behind in the transition?
Are you a visually creative person? Because if you are, then this week's Price Drop is going to knock your socks off. That's not all we've got, but people, we have a ton of camera apps.
