    Black Friday App Sales 

    As you might expect, a lot of apps went on sale today.  Some of the more exciting offerings I’ve seen for the day:

    Shakespeare Pro – dropped from $10 to $7

    PDF Expert – dropped from $10 to $7

    Star Walk – dropped from $5 to $4

    SketchBook Pro – dropped from $5 to $1 !!  this is the cheapest the app has ever been

    Art Authority – dropped from $10 to $5

    and to fight off those holiday pounds, Gorilla Workout (no equipment or gym needed) dropped from $2 to $1

    Remember, when you’re searching apps in the App Store to always get your apps from the top “iPad” section, not the bottom “iPhone” section.

    Happy holidays!

    Here are the details:
