Not an app deal, but a deal for iPad 1 people none the less...

Seems that verizon is trying to get rid of a lot of iPad 1 cases right now.

I picked up a scosche clear case for $5.32 with overnight shipping.

The puzzler Skeleton Key is currently available for FREE.
"You are a treasure hunter who has acquired the keys to countless treasure chests. You must travel into the forest, through the caves, across the beach, and onto the pirate ship in search of treasure!
Skeleton Key is an addictive and unique puzzle game in which you shift keys around the board unlocking treasure chests. You move keys LEFT, RIGHT, or DOWN by swiping the screen, and all keys move at the same time. Be careful though, you might get stuck and have to restart the level!
Things get more complicated with doors and door switches. Moving a key over a door switch opens all the closed doors and closes all the open doors, so even with incredibly simple rules, the game gets very tricky."

Ive used QuickOffice, Documents to Go, and Office2(my favorite and best bang for buck). I really didnt like QuickOffice and Documents to Go was too expensive for what it offered versus Office2

And I am pretty sure you can download anything in Atomic Browser/Mercury and then just sentd the files to Dropbox for use(At least in atomic you can I believe)

On the desktop in iTunes, under iTunes Store, scroll to the bottom of the page. There should be a circular flag in the lower right corner. Click on it, and pick the store country you want to use. Remember to switch this back when needed. Also, I believe if you synch your device in iTunes, it caches whichever store you are currently using in iTunes onto the device's App Store app (but I haven't really verified this).


Just remember that once you switch to Japan iTunes, instead of registering, first click on an app that is free, which then takes you to a register new account.

The difference is that one requires a credit card, the other doesn't.

And it is true...you want to use a different e-mail for Japan iTunes, so if you are on your iPad and you need to update applications (for US and Japan), on your iPad, it will require you to login on both accounts.

The only thing is that if your last log on was iTunes Japan, certain games...for the online purchasing store, you will see the dollars changed to Yen. But all you need to do is that when you resync or going iTunes music store, go to the US version, log on and everything will be back ala US again.

Very easy to do.

Does anyone know of a way to track price changes on in-app purchases? I'm currently keeping itunes shortcuts for the apps I want, and it's cumbersome.

Do a search for whatever game. They show most, if not all, price history updates.

If I'm not wrong AppShopper does not track IAP prices.

Not on sale, but has anyone checked out the new WWE Superstar Slingshot game yet? I downloaded it on impulse buy (I'm such a WWE mark), but haven't had the chance to play it yet. I read it's like Angry Birds with WWE wrestlers. $1.99 in the app store. http://appshopper.co...rstar-slingshot

In-app? No. That's too much to ask for. They have to monitor several thousand apps as is.

Do in-app prices change all that much for items to be tracked?

The one you've been waiting for, Porn Trivia, is now free. ;)

Bloons Tower Defense 4 HD has dropped a couple bucks to $4.99:

I'll wait for it to hit 99 cents, though.

I'm sure someone said that about the apps in general before appshopper was what it was. It's inevitable that someone does this. There probably just isn't an easy way to check these things. Apple doesn't do a good job and list in App Purchases well on the web site.

Don't think so, the only case I know (or at least was advertised) was Baseball Superstars 2011, the free version and they lowered the IAP to full to 99c.

It looks like Gangstar: Miami Vindication will be on sale tomorrow for $.99. I don't know much more info. As someone posted last week, Gameloft said it was going to be on sale for $.99 but didn't say when. I was just on Touch Arcade and saw posted that during a trailer for another game, a box popped up saying Gangstar was going to be on sale April 6th. Here's the link to the source: http://forums.toucha...ead.php?t=89785. I'm excited. Just have to clear up some space on the 'ol iPhone.

It's a bit of a catch 22. Devs do not discount DLC/IAP because it doesn't get them higher in rankings or more attention. It doesn't give them more attention because not as many places promote/track price reductions. No one makes a tracking service because devs don't discount products much.

I've seen a number of in-app purchase prices change recently. One was the iSWiFter in-app purchase raised from $1 to $3, so since they did that, it's entirely possible they could lower it. Sometimes IAP go free (Pac-man Championship) or are discounted (Bit.Trip Beat). Also, some apps are moving to the freemium model (Sacred Odyssey HD is free, then $7 IAP for full game).

So, there would be value in tracking these changes (I know I'm interested), it's possible to be done, therefore it's likely we will see it at some point.

I picked up that LiveSketch HD app when it was, I believe, free a while back, but I only started messing with it today. Has anyone else tried it? If yes, do you find it a bit freaky like me? I don't know... it just seems weird, but here is a sketch I did after messing with the app for a few minutes.

I haven't used it but that was pretty good/intriguing. Do some more and see what you can come up with.

Yeah I downloaded it when it was free as well. It's one of my favorite apps. I think the auto shading creates sort of a creepy/freaky effect.

Assuming it's not an april fools joke Gangstar: Miami Vindication will be dropping down to 0.99 soon so don't buy it at full price.

The sale is already live. Some people are pointing out on iTunes review that the game crashes.

Yep, every single review from Apr 5 says it crashes. So I might buy it in a couple hours or tomorrow, but I probably won't download it anytime soon.
