July 4th Holiday App Sales Galore

by Marianne Schultz

We love holidays since developers like to celebrate them with app sales even if they’re not about gift-giving, and Independence Day weekend in the U.S. is no exception. There are a ton of apps on sale and I’ll try to cover the major sales here but there are so many you’ll want to check out our Price Drops listings for iOS and Mac apps respectively.

First off, the big game houses have knocked down prices on a plethora of titles for the weekend. Electronic Arts, Gameloft and others have joined in on the fun with some deep discounts. Most notably, Electronic Arts has dropped the prices of around 90 (!) of its iOS titles down to $.99, bringing some games that are regularly $9.99, like Battlefield: Bad Company 2 HD, Dead Space HD, Monopoly HD, Need for Speed Shift HD and others down significantly. Click here to see all of EA’s titles in the App store.

Also, MacPhun has made its neat Silent Film Director video editing app free and its FX Photo Studio picture editing apps $.99 in celebration of the July 4th holiday.
