Free iPhone and iPad apps could be beginnings of larger App Store anniversary sale

app-store-billions

Several big-name apps have slashed prices in what could be a coordinated effort in celebration of the anniversary of the App Store’s launch. Apple opened the doors to their digital storefront on July 10th, 2008, and this week marks the fifth anniversary. Is it only a coincidence that apps and games like Traktor DJ, Where’s My Water?, Day One, and Infinity Blade II have dropped to free today?

We think not. While their descriptions don’t provide any details, the number of popular apps going free simultaneously seems far from accidental. Apple has yet to comment or release an official statement regarding the matter, however.

Regardless, it’s a great opportunity to snag some serious savings. Traktor DJ for iPad is normally priced at $19.99, making a free download one of the best deals you will find on the internet today (even if you don’t know squat about digital DJing). Other apps and games uncovered so far as part of the mystery sale include Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP, Badland, Tiny Wings, and Barefoot World Atlas.
