Tons of Award Winning iOS Apps and Games Gone Free Ahead of App Store’s 5 Year Anniversary. What’s Next?
The 5-Year Anniversary of App Store is fast approaching this week on July 10th. We are seeing tons of award winning, top paid apps of all time gone free! Hugely popular games like Infinity Blade 2 (was $6.99), Tiny Wings (iPad, iPhone), and Where’s My Water have already gone free this Monday morning.
It is not too strange to find one of these popular paid apps for free at any given time. After all, Infinity Blade 1 had gone free before as part of App Store’s App of the Week promotion. But having all these popular apps go free at the same time may not be a coincidence. Apple may be planning a huge celebration for the 5-year anniversary by making some of the most popular apps of all times free this week!
Other award winning apps have also gone free as of this Monday morning. They include BADLAND and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery. Badland won Apple’s Design award earlier this year, and Superbrothers was Apple’s iPad Game of the Year runner up in 2011.
Barefoot World Atlas was inducted into App Store’s Hall of Fame last year. Day One is a journaling app that had won Apple’s 2011 Best Lifestyle App of the Year. Over is a popular photo caption app. Traktor DJ is another popular DJ app.
We believe more award winning apps and games will be made free later this week. Check back at AppChronicles.com to get the latest free app news!
