So now that we’re rolling into December, we’re about to enter into the biggest season of the year for both app buying and app sales. Right before Christmas, Apple will “freeze” the App Store, which means listings won’t get updated, and developers won’t be able to change prices or release new apps, so iOS devs and publishers are working overtime right now to make sure everything is ready for the holiday.
But there are other ways to find big app price drops. EA has made it easy for its apps — the company has put together a “Daily Deals” page that will highlight free and discounted apps that show up in the company’s catalog. Right now, for example, Shift 2 Unleashed and The Sims Medieval are both completely free, and there are a few other apps that are discounted in price.
