Notable Holiday App Sales

by Marianne Schultz

If you’ve been waiting for price drops to buy some apps, I’m pretty sure the time has come for you to go through your Wish List and browse our Price Drops list and open up your virtual wallet and buy it all because it feels like everything is on sale right now. It’s not possible for me to list every app sale in this post but I’d like to at least highlight some of the significant ones, particularly for apps that were featured or reviewed here on AppShopper this year.

But first things first.

If you’re new to AppShopper, see this article on our Wish list function and how to use it.

Now on to the sales!

First up are a few notable paid apps that are completely free for a very limited time. Snowman’s location-aware tasks app, Checkmark, is free for today only while Blux Camera for iPad has also dropped to $0 from $1.99 for a short time. WhatsApp Messenger, the incredibly popular cross-platform text messaging app, is now free as well, down from $.99.
