Hi! Thanks for reading. This post looks better in our award-winning app, Tips & Tricks for iPhone.
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.
V for Wikipedia
Was $5/£5, now $3/£3
Given that you can get perfectly decent Wikipedia apps for free, you might wonder why you should consider paying for one. In the case of V for Wikipedia (formerly Viki), it’s all about pushing craft and quality as far as possible, marrying the great typography found in real-world books with the smarts available in a digital interface. What sets V apart is that it’s just nicer to use than its contemporaries.
Was $20/£20, now $14/£14
Apps for home exercise are more important than ever these days, but most decent yoga instructor apps charge a hefty subscription fee. Simply Yoga is different. Not only is it one of the better yoga apps out there, with video/audio classes aplenty alongside dozens of poses and custom routine creation, but it only charges a one-time fee for access. That fee is $6/£6 cheaper if you buy now!
Was $30/£30, now $15/£15
One for the musicians and wannabe musicians among you, this is a pro-level audio tool for creating and playing samples. It’s easy to use, surprisingly powerful, and all designed for touch. Plus it’ll link up to pretty much whatever other kit or apps you might use already. Currently half off as part of a “stay at home” sale!
Dr Suess apps
Was $6/£6 each, now $4/£4
Oceanhouse Media are having a huge sale of EVERY Dr Suess app to celebrate the great children’s author’s birthday. That includes Horton Hears a Who, Fox in Socks, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back, and loads more. If you’ve got young ones in your life, now’s your chance to stock up!
