I used to search the iPhone App Store every day or so to look for sales or price reductions. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular when I would search like this. I just wanted to find something cool to try that was free. Or something I know I wanted that was on sale.
I was able to pick up a few gems on 1 day sales or free giveaways.
The problem is, that its nearly impossible to do this by hand now. There are so many applications on the App Store, its hard to find these 1 day specials.
Fortunately, I found a better way. AppShopper.com. AppShopper scans the iTunes store regularly and picks up all of the new apps, upgrades, price reductions and special free giveaways. So all you need to do is search for them. Here are two searches I use every day to find free or reduced apps:
AppShopper.com – Free Giveaways: This search will show you all applications that were previously paid and now changed to be free. This is a great search to use to find all of those free 1 day giveaways.
AppShopper.com – Reduced Pricing: This search will show any price reductions. It is very handy to use to find one day sales. I picked up a number of titles that were $5-10 normally for $1 this way.
