Hey guys ... A bit offtopic, but anyone with a second US iTunes ID has an idea which state doesn't collect taxes for purchases? I got myself a few bucks gift card, but for 3x$0,99 purchases it charged me $0,28 for tax, lol. First tried with NY state address, then CA state address, but both seem to collect taxes.

Anyone with experience with this?


CA does not.

What about that news about amazon charging tax in CA? I haven't been keeping up with that since I pretend I'm residing in tax-free Alaska. No need to scroll down those drop lists of states while I fill out those sign up pages.

CA sales tax doesn't apply to digital goods, so iTunes purchases are untaxed.

AppShopper just emailed me (yesterday) that "Save Our Sheep HD" (universal) went FREE (normally $2.99) ...

MotoHeroz HD is free (previously a great wiiware game)-
http://itunes.apple....d502462192?mt=8

Ubisoft REALLY wants you to know the following are on sale:

Also notice that Prince of Persia® Classic will soon be 99-cents (down 50%), though obviously no idea (yet) if that's iPhone-only or includes the HD version ...

Playrix currently has a few Premium games on sale ... but you'll want to 1) launch the game while it's on sale (so it's registered), and 2) bbackup the files ASAP, since they could easily revert to IAP with each version update:

meh. i fortunately live in tax free Oregon, but i seriously disagree with the gov't getting their sticky little fingers all over every single transaction. i mean, seriously, we're talking about purely digital goods bought with digital cash. it's bad enough when they tax your earnings then tax your spending (and then you've got the fed undercutting the value by printing it whenever, but that's a whole different ball of wax)

point is... while it might be 'illegal', i think they can survive not getting their 30 cents given the millions they steal on a daily basis from actual producers.

Downloaded and played Around the World in 80 Days HD for iPad, and it let me play up to France and then said I had to buy the rest, wtf? I know I downloaded the free version.

Had same problem. Their premium is not really the full version.

Yeah, when I went to download it (only a few hours after the deal was posted yesterday), I saw they were listing "Full Game" as an IAP for $4.99 and I decided not to even bother.

Pixel land dropped to free http://appshopper.com/games/pixel-land

It is a game that occurs on an 8x8 grid... but it's like Mario I think. Novelty for sure, but prob worth a look.

Courtesy of AppSpy,

On the Wind is reminiscent of PSN Flower. I dunno if I like it, and the comparison is superficial, since the gameplay is very different, but it's free and worth a look.

Spectre 3D is a remake of an Apple game. For the rest of us, it's like multiplayer Battlezone.

That's awesome news, EvilIA! Thanks for sharing. Though I own the PSone port and the PSP remake, I haven't played through either one -- though I beat it on Sega CD. I'm definitely gonna pick it up if it's not too outlandish.

Also, thanks for heads-up on On the Wind, blandstalker. Looks great, and the price is right.

I picked up Angry Birds Space HD when it was 99 cents. Wouldn't call myself a fan of the series, but I've been enjoying this one so far.

OK, so I'm getting an iphone 5 whenever its delivered.

How can i get in on these free deals on two iphnes coming.

what I did was make itunes accounts and found the free games i wanted (ticket to ride, etc) hit the free app button, let them start downloading, then switched to the other itunes account and did the same thing or each app.

Does this save it to my account like android as in i can redownload it once i get the phone since its on my account. or is it a one time download?
