It can be hard to find real bargains on the App Store these days, as so many services and utilities have moved to a freemium model with no up-front cost. But many of the best apps still come with a price tag, and we’ve found a few on offer this week. Don’t miss out!
All prices are accurate at the time of writing, but please be mindful that they could change at any time.
Was $7/£7, now $5/£5
It’s Pictionary, but on the big screen! This is a drawing-based party game you can mirror to a TV so everyone can see what’s going on. Then your iPhone or iPad keeps track of scores, prompts, and the actual drawing part. This is great entertainment for the whole family.
3D Scanner App
Was $23/£23, now $10/£10
Ever wanted to make detailed 3D scans with your iPhone or iPad? The future is here! This premium scanning app is more than half off, giving you the chance to try out this cool technology without breaking the bank. Suitable for 3D printing, CGI models, virtual home tours, game dev, or just for fun – but your results will be superior if you have a recent iPhone or iPad with a LiDAR scanner.
Was $6/£6, then $3/£3, now $1/£1
This is a logic-based secret agent adventure in which you’ll have to solve a mystery by snooping around a fancy house and fiddling with hidden levers and clever contraptions. We mentioned this in a previous price drop roundup when it was half price, but now it’s just a buck! No excuse not to try this excellent room escape game.
Was $9/£9, now $4/£4
This fully-featured note-taking and annotation app includes document scanning, PDF. marking, form filing, sketching, iCloud sync, audio notes, and – of course – just regular ol’ text notes. Basically, there’s a lot going on here and $4/£4 with no IAP is a bargain.
Was $5/£5, now $1/£1
This home budgeting and expense tracking app makes it easy to sort out your finances. Though it does offer premium subscriptions, you can currently get 80% off the base functions of the app. If that’s not good financial sense, we don’t know what is.
