Mac minis are back in the game after a hiatus around these parts. These little hockey puck-sized powerhouses were some of the first signs of Apple's commitment to shrinkage — but in a good way. And now we see that the cold weather has also gotten the prices of gear down to smaller sizes. So what are you waiting for?
All right, people, remember what we said last year? We weren't going to let the holidays frazzle us. We were going to be on top of things, we weren't going to be a disorganized mess, we weren't going to be playing "New Year's Resolution" catch up. So let's get cracking. This week's apps are all about getting stuff done, getting organized, paying our bills, but we've got a little holiday cheer for you as well. Consider it "ho ho ho" meets "go go go!"
It's a definitely grab-bag weekly sale this week, with apps from across the spectrum getting their prices peeled down to the bare. It's Black Friday for the shoppers but it's always a price drop Friday when you swing around to MacLife. So dive right in, if you're awake enough to read this and still have a few bucks left after the shopping madness of the day.
We’re not going to point you in the direction of any Black Friday deals here, as those are covered pretty thoroughly elsewhere. But you should seriously check these deals before camping out all night, as maybe you’ll save even bigger and get to sleep in a nice warm bed after all that turkey. Your call.
If you want to get into shape, take great pictures, or just get your game on with the beary cutest games ever, then you've come to the right place. Some self-improvement, some taking care of Grandma, and just some all-out fun with one of our favorite game franchises around are all under one roof. And hey, best of all, tons of these are free free free.
Apple is widely starting to be known primarily for its portable products (and, yes, we’re including laptops in that category), but you also have to give it recognition for its solid, sexy desk-bound models as well. There are some pretty sweet deals on these home computers this week, and we’ll show you where to find them.
If you’ve got a little one, then you need to know about the big $0.99 Toca sale. Because we’ve got scads of them below. Plus we’ve got an arty app for your cat, a little piano tutoring, a classic game, and plenty other apps to make you a better person overall. Yes, there is an app for that, it’s called the App Store, and here’s where your road starts.
Well, the MacBook Air didn't get much love during Apple’s recent events, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of deals to go around to get you the lightest, best laptop around. Maybe people aren’t throwing over their Airs for the newest, freshest model like they are for iPads, but that doesn’t mean you’re not ready to rock these bargains.
Last week, we hooked you up with some killer refurb deals in the MacBook Pro line, as the new MacBook models introduced at Apple’s new iPad event might kick those deals into high gear. Now as we sit on the cusp of the release of the latest iPad models, here’s an armload of tablets on the cheap, just for you. These deals are so good, it’s terrifying.
Sometimes, you're all, "enough with the notifications and the productivity already, I just want to get my game on!" Well, if you've ever had a case of that, have we got the Price Drop for you. Every app this week is game-time-fun-time for you. We've left the to-do apps, the social media, the office productivity, all of that, behind and we're in the land of fun this week, so get your iTunes account fired up and get your gaming thumbs limber.
