Amazing deals... PART 2!!!

I can't find the old amazing deals thread, so I'm starting a new one. ColorRise 3D is FREE right now. Stone of Destiny and 300 Bowl are $.99. Chopper is $1.99.

Also, check this out if you haven't already:

When apps go on sale or drop in price they automatically appear here. Usually you wouldn't know about sales otherwise.

Oh yeah, IQ Boost is only $.99 now too.

Awesome link, thanks - while browsing the apps earlier I was thinking Apple should have a section for recently reduced games, as it would create a ton more downloads. This site is definitely going in my bookmarks!!

Those look great! Is there a way to add the old price for each app whose price has changed onto the summary page? I can see that it is listed if you drill down to the individual app, but it would be helpful if it were listed on the summary page as well. Also, is it possible to add all of the screenshots for an app instead of just one screenshot (i.e., those that are provided in iTunes)? It is helpful to see a bit more of the app. Thank you!

That's great, Arn!

Some observations on viewing this site & similar ones on my iTouch: As far as rss feeds go, your new site is the best I've found. However, when viewing the actual site on my iPod (which I prefer to rss), I prefer 148apps.com - they have a nice iPhone-easy look & usability. I'd love to see your site go more iPhone-viewing friendly. Between this site & MacRumors, I'd happily frequent your new site more if it accommodated the screen better.

Btw: the iTunes links don't always work, or they take a *really* long time, and each page reads "What's New" rather than something more useful, like which app is being viewed (helps when you have more than one tab going).

Either way, thanks for making the site!

- I've changed the name of the details page to something more useful.
- The iTunes links no longer work in Mobile Safari, making the site far less useful for iPhone browsing. I'll have to look into a better iPhone interface

Fantastic site there Arn, love the interface - super clean and well thought out. I can see I'll be checking it all the time looking for the best deals
