So I did it. I put up a poll (sidebar, just above the tall skinny ads) and I asked if you would visit my review-only site, and after about 3 or 4 people said “yeah” I went and made AppSale.net. I’ve never been known for being patient! Truth is I had already decided to do the site and I was just looking for a little validation.
It went live over the weekend and lots of developers are already sending me descriptions, sale dates, screenshots, and Youtube videos to post with their sale announcements. You know what this means, right? It means that I’ll be in the know when cool apps become free! And some apps that simply drop to a lower price might also be worth mentioning here and there.
So here’s the first-ever App Sale Alert:
$0.99 Free until 03/20/09: Ambiance Classic
I reviewed this app a long time ago when it was just a humble sound machine with a limited number of sound loops, and now that Matt Coneybeare has released a completely overhauled version, he’s putting his original Ambiance out there at no cost for a little while so you can see what you missed. If you’re looking for a sound machine to help you relax or sleep at night, Ambiance Classic will do it (but his new version will probably do it better).
$2.99 $0.99 until 03/15/2009: Carambole Pool Puzzles
Swain reviewed Carambole Pool Puzzles recently and would have loved the game if it hadn’t crashed on him every 5 seconds. ADS Software Group says they’ve fixed the crashing issue, so this one might finally be worth trying for a buck.
That’s all I got for now… there are a few other apps listed at AppSale.net that are free, but right now Ambiance is really the only one that stands out as a possible must-have.
