Black Friday App Deals 2012

Traditional retailers aren't the only ones having Black Friday specials. Numerous companies that make apps for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac are putting their apps on sale this weekend. I have tried to include only apps that have gotten good reviews.

Note: The discounted prices will only be good for a short period of time. If there is an app that sounds interesting you should purchase it immediately so you don't miss out on the savings.

Universal Apps (Both iPhone & iPad)

Calendars by Readdle is my favorite calendar app on the iPhone. If you would like to learn more about this app check out my blog post 5 Things - Week Ending 8/17/12. The part about Calendars by Readdle is towards the bottom of the blog post.

Scanner Pro is a great app that allows you to turn your iPhone or iPad into a scanner. If you would like to know more about this app check out my blog post The Tech I Use - Scanner Pro.

iPad Apps

Quickoffice Pro HD is an app that allows you to work with Word, Excel, and Powerpoint documents. Good app to have if you find yourself working with those types of files on a regular basis.

Monopoly Here & Now, Plants vs Zombies HD, Tetris for iPad, Real Racing 2 HD, and Flight Control HD are all fantastic games that will provide plenty of entertainment. You can collect all five for less than $5.

Paprika Recipe Manager is a new app for me and I have not used it yet. The reviews are very positive and it looks like a very useful app. I have a feeling that Britta will love it!

iPhone Apps

Mac Apps

1Password is one of my most used apps on my Mac. It helps me have really secure passwords for the numerous websites that I use. It is worth every penny. I mentioned 1Password in my blog post Public Service Announcement - LinkedIn,, and eHarmony Password Breach. I also talk about 1Password in my Staying Safe In A Digital World community ed class.

Soulver is another one of my favorite apps for my Mac. I use it all the time to do math. I like it because it's more flexible than a calculator and easier to use than a spreadsheet.
