Some Weekend iPhone Deals

by panappticon on January 30, 2010

in Sales

I’ve got some new reviews coming soon, but in the meantime don’t miss these games which are on sale for FREE before they go back up to normal price! iBomber [App Store Link] is currently on sale for FREE (reg. $2.99, 3/5 stars) and is a pretty fun tilt-control game where you’re in a bomber and have to drop bombs on enemy ships. I bought this months ago and occasioanlly play it and definitely think it’s worth grabbing while it’s free. Compression [App Store Link] is also FREE (and for today only, reg. $0.99, 3/5 stars) and looks awesome. I [...]

in Sales

If you’re into tilt marble games (like Labyrinth) then you owe it to yourself to check out Dark Nebula [App Store Link], which is FREE this weekend only (normally $0.99). Amazingly positive reviews and a pricetag with no digits on it make this a no-brainer download for some fun gaming action this weekend. I’ve downloaded it and played it, and it’s definitely worth $0.99 and would almost be criminal not to take advantage of it being free right now. If you’re into Tower Defense-style games and haven’t yet, check out Defender Chronicles- Legend of the Desert King [App Store Link] [...]

in Sales

If there’s one iPhone game you shouldn’t miss during the Thanksgiving App Store sale madness, it’s MiniSquadron. This one has been garnering a ton of forum buzz, has a perfect 5/5 star average on the iTunes Store, and after Monopoly kept crashing on me I bought MiniSquadron and it truly is a blast. Expect a review forthcoming, but it probably doesn’t need one–just go pick it up now while it’s $2 off it’s normal price and only $0.99, you’ll be glad you did.

Here’s another big-name iPhone App on sale: Now’s your chance to get Doom Resurrection [App Store Link] for only $2.99 if you missed it the last time it was on sale a few months ago (regularly $6.99, 4/5 stars).

BeejiveIM is On Sale For Its Cheapest Price Ever

by panappticon on November 22, 2009

in Sales

The popular multi-protocol IM App BeejiveIM is currently on sale for its cheapest price ever, $6.99 (regularly $9.99, 4/5 stars). In yesterday’s weekend update post I mentioned that Trillian ($4.99) is out for the iPhone and might be a worthy competitor, but now that BeejiveIM is down to $6.99, only a couple dollars more than Trillian (vs double the price), I’d be much more inclined to recommend BeejiveIM over it. So if you’ve been putting off getting a paid multi-protocol IM client, now’s the time to snag BeejiveIM. Just a note–this week should see some pretty remarkable App sales so [...]
