Did you net yourself a bargain during last week’s Black Friday promotions? Too bad if not, but we’ve got promotions every week in our Apps on Sale columns. Despite all the sales last week, there’s always something interesting going for cheap on the App Store.
This week we’ve got a couple of old school arcade games, a classic iOS talking toy and quite possibly the platform’s best board game on sale for the first ever time. Let’s take a look at this week’s Apps on Sale.
