Mac Apps on Sale to Celebrate the Release of Lion

Lion, the latest version of Apple’s operating system for the Mac, debuted this week and a few developers have elected to celebrate its release by decreasing the prices of their apps – a very welcome gesture in our view here at AppShopper. Here’s a rundown of some of the bigger price reductions we’ve seen.

Realmac Software, the developers of several high-quality applications for the Mac, has made some drastic price reductions specifically to mark the release of Lion. Rapidweaver, a website creation and publication tool, is down $40 to just $39.99 from its regular price of $79.99. LittleSnapper, a digital scrapbooking tool for web designers, has also been reduced significantly down to $19.99 from its regular price of $39.99.

If you’re looking for a deal on Civilization V, it’s only $17 on Steam right now. That’s just for the base version though.

Getting Civ V on Steam gets you both Mac and Windows versions. The game is built around Steamworks, so buying a box or a digital download basically gets you a code to activate it in Steam. If the App Store build doesn’t have Steamworks, then how would multiplayer work?

Derp, I just read the Mac App Store page. The MAS version will only do multiplayer on a LAN, likely because it can’t use Steam for matchmaking.

Or, maybe Civ 5 only uses LAN due to tighter real-time latency requirements than Starcraft II?
