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.
Working on documenting your family tree as a summer project? Nova Development wants to help you and acknowledge Lion’s release with a price drop of $30 to bring the price of its family history documenting application, Family Tree Maker, down to $69.99. The application also includes a 6-month membership to Ancestry.com where you can access census records, draft cards, and more.
Feel like toasting the debut of Lion with a little fun instead of work? Aspyr Media has knocked $10 off the price of its turn-based strategy game, Civilization V, bringing its price down to $39.99 from $49.99.
