Apple intros “Free App of the Week”

Apple intros “Free App of the Week”
The official App Store Twitter account sent out an interesting tweet earlier today. It invited everyone to go to the App Store to download Cut the Rope: Experiments for free and accompanied the announcement with the hash tag #FreeAppoftheWeek.

Interestingly, this is the first time we’ve seen a promotion such as this and it will be interesting to see if this is something that will continue each week going forward. The idea itself is revolutionary very much like the free App of the Day Amazon offers for its Android app store, but, hey, who doesn’t like getting paid apps for free?

Can't miss it

Can't miss it

If you check out Cut the Rope: Experiments from within the App Store, you can see an unnecessarily large “App of the Week” banner now accompanies it. Is that an indication that Apple is going to be sticking with the free App of the Week strategy? We have no idea. In the mean time, be sure you grab your free copy of Cut the Rope: Experiments while Apple’s footing the bill.

And operation smother Amazon is under way. Next up the 7" iPad (that Apple once said is not a good size and we the public only want 10", when 7 is actually a pretty sweet spot mobility wise) priced to move. The next few years we're going to see innovative and magical things from this company that were already done, just not magically. I hope Google patented their widgets look better than the notification bar.

Google doesnt need to give these offers as they know that we droid users can get after searching "(name of app) apk download" in GOOGLE SEARCH.

Yeah, but updating them can be quite a hassle.

Been doing this for a while with Android. But I think Google's is App of the day. Ether way this is good news for IOS users and maybe this might start a trend for Apple to offer more back to their customers.

It's most likely over priced as usual.
