Apple 99 Cent Apps: Price Reduction On 100 Popular Apps

iPhone App News

Apple has dropped the price on 100 apps and games on the iTunes App Store in what 9to5mac reports to be the biggest iOS game/app sale of the year.

The recently reduced pricing on the 100 popular apps and games is, for the most part, now less than a buck and at just 99-cents, news of the iOS App Store development has spread quickly across the web.

Apple Insider notes in a report published Thursday that a substantial portion of the 100 titles up for sale at 99 cents a pop are gaming titles, such as Goat Simulator and Angry Birds.

Other games which might standout to some readers include Rayman Jungle Run, which is regularly $3, and the normally $5 Real Racing game.

While some of these apps have appeared in other sales, this is the first time they’ve all been bundled up together in one mega-sized app sale. Perhaps worth noting, Apple Insider reports that a number of the non-game apps included in the sale are cross-listed in a separate 99 cent sale which kicked off last week.

In other app gaming news, the sequel to Rovio’s Angry Birds, Angry Birds 2, is set to hit app stores on July 30. And in other app related developments, Apple has reportedly adjusted its App Store ranking algorithm in a move which has had an impact on some iPad developers, according to Tech Crunch.

The recently reported change to Apple’s App Store algorithm — something that nobody knows the specifics of — reportedly began about a week ago with the tech giant tweaking its rankings algorithm, but so far, the changes have impacted a subset of iPad app developers on the US-version of the App Store.
