Labor Day Sales: Games, Utilities and More (Oh My!)

by Marianne Schultz
 

Labor Day, the holiday dedicated to American workers that marks the end of the summer fun and the beginning of the school year in the U.S., is upon us and app developers have again marked down their apps to entice you do to some digital shopping. While we hope you’re outside enjoying this long weekend, we’ve rounded up some of the most popular price drops to help guide your app purchases during your down time over the next few days.

First up are some games. If you want to kill zombies, race exotic cars, or compete in word duels with your friends, several big-name game developers are ready for you with enough sales this weekend to make your head spin. Gameloft has dropped prices on eight of its titles down to just $.99 – many of these are down from $4.99 or higher:
