**** off BrainFreeze.

This crap is all I ever see when I'm looking for price drops. I'm beginning to suspect they drop the price temporarily just to get their apps to appear at the top of the list on AppSniper and BargainBin.

...and considering how many versions they have:

...it clutters the place up. I'm sick of looking at it . Pick one and see how many price changes it's had. Ridiculous.

Is there no way of filtering this rubbish out of the price-drop lists?

Well BargainBin lets you select apps to be notified about, so at least I won't miss the ones I'm waiting on... but there's no way to filter the list when I'm looking for random bargains.

you should specify that you are talking of BrainFreeze Puzzles. BrainFreeze is a different puzzle game that doesn't use this stupid strategy and is actually very good.

You're right... I didn't know they were different games. Changed the link in the first post to exclude the "good" Brainfreeze. No need to drag them down too

There's nothing that can be done with BargainBin, but you can "ban" them on AppSniper. Just pick any one of their apps, go into the description, and click the little icon of the circle with a line through it. That will add "ProWeb Games" to your ban list, and none of their apps will show up in AppSniper again. It's a far from perfect solution, but it helps.

Dont care about appsniper/bargain bin/pandora/store-extend anymore. Arn needs to add such facility in AppShopper which is the only thing I use now, be it my computer or iPhone. That will make appshopper even better than what it already is.

BoxMan is also pulling this **** now. Constantly raising prices then dropping them on the same day:

Really starting to get on my nerves.

these apps with quick cycling of prices are blocked from appshopper's price drop lists and toucharcade's game lists automatically.

though the changes are still tracked if you look at the app page.
