Memorial Day App Sales Galore

by Marianne Schultz
 

The Memorial Day holiday in the U.S. is on Monday and app developers are again joining in with brick and mortar stores to drop prices and there a ton of apps on sale this weekend. It would take me several pages to list them all so I’m going to try to tackle the most notable sales here and then you can dive deeper through a few links.

First up, gamers should rejoice since EA has put 49 (yes, 49) of their titles on sale for the weekend at up to 90% off. The biggest price drops are on the following iPad games:

There are also a bunch of indie games on sale as pointed out by our sister site, TouchArcade. The “Because We May” event kicked off yesterday and runs through June 1. This promotion event centers on the belief that “developers should have the freedom to price their games how they like.” While Apple doesn’t tell developers what to do when it comes to pricing their apps (aside from requiring that all prices end with “.99″), I’m still happy to see that developers have found a reason to drop prices. And you should be too.

Some of the biggest iOS titles on sale in the Because We May event are:
