Discounts used to be ten-a-penny on the App Store, but over the last few years we’ve seen the number of apps on sale dramatically decrease. With more and more apps going the freemium route – supported by ads, IAP, or subscriptions – there’s less room for conventional discounts. How can you make something that’s already free to download more compelling?
But this week has bucked the trend, and there are several great apps on sale we’d like to draw your attention to. So without further ado, dig your teeth into the following apps and games!
Please remember that all prices are correct at the time of writing, but prices can change at any time. Always double-check the price on the App Store before buying!
