Price Drop Alert: Valentine’s Day Sales Galore

by Marianne Schultz
 

Though Valentine’s day isn’t a holiday we normally associate with sales, iOS developers have taken the bull by the horns and are offering deep discounts in celebration of the day focused on love and affection. Other developers have taken this opportunity to drop prices specifically to welcome Verizon customers following last week’s launch of the carrier’s CDMA iPhone 4.

Below are a few of the most notable price drops we’ve seen.
