We've got some games and we've got a couple productivity apps, but what we've really got this week is savings. Whether you roll with nature or roll with the punches, there's something in this week's slashed prices that's sure to fit your outlook. So let's get in there.
A couple big name families of apps are on sale across the board this weekend, plus we've got an assortment of apps that want you to be more productive and apps to track your every last move if you so desire. And if you want to get your chat on, we've got an app that kills at that, and best of all, they're all on sale and tons of them are free, so get your fingers to the ready.
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.
Tons of app sales are starting and wow has your App Store app updates been as crazy as ours? We can't pick up our iPhones or iPads without seeing that famiiar red badge letting us know there are yet more updates pushed down the pike. Here are a few of the latest discounts we've seen to give you something to play with on your new handset when you get it.
If you’re a fan of chatting with friends and family through Facebook, developer SHAPE Services has a treat for you, and just in time for the Labor Day weekend here in the U.S. -- IM+ Video is a new free app offering unrestricted video and voice calls to and from your iPhone through Facebook.
Lion continues to dominate the news, like the king of the jungle that it is, and we continue to rock out hard with stories featuring this good beast. But that wasn't all, by far, that happened this week, because there were some hardware refreshes, some how-tos that came out as a result of the new OS, and more, tons more, in case you missed it.
Yes, it's true -- there are still people out there doing the AIM chatting thing or getting their Yahoo Chat on. We know, we know, it's hard for us to believe it too. But for those of us who have our benighted friends trapped in the late 90s, there is still hope. We can chat with them on our iOS devices and still manage to grab our Facebook friends and our Gmail folks. These may not be the one app to bind them but they come pretty close when you rock the multi-client instant messaging apps.
