Easter Sales Hop Into the App Store

by Marianne Schultz
 

While we’re still not sure why Easter is the right time for app sales (though you’ll never find us complaining about it), several developers have drastically reduced prices on their iOS titles and we wanted to highlight a few of them for you.

Most notably, EA Mobile has discounted the prices of several games drastically, including Dead Space for the iPad and iPhone, which has gone from $9.99 for the iPad version and $6.99 for the iPhone version down to just $.99 each. That’s one hell of a sale and worth a purchase if you’ve even vaguely thought of checking it out.
