Largest sale of the year has seen Apple slash prices across the App store

Apple’s iTunes is currently holding one of the biggest sales on its apps this year, with some of the most popular apps reduced to free.

The tech giant is promoting 100 different apps that users can download for substantially reduced prices, including items such as Rayman Jungle Run or Angry Birds.

Although apps were initially all either free or priced at £0.79, their explosion in popularity has seen prices spiral in recent years. Although many are still free, users can be charged increasingly steep prices for the most popular apps.

Here are some of our favourites:


Normally for sale for £1.93 this massively popular app, downloaded an estimated 90 million times and with stellar reviews across the board, is currently (at the time of publication) totally free.

Allowing you to virtually share a pint with any number of your friends, we might not pay money for it – but as a free app it is a winner.


One for parents: allow your child to play on your iPhone without worrying they will clog up the memory and/or break something. Free on iTunes at the moment.
