30 of the best iOS apps are on sale through December 26th. Yeah, that reads like a million other "App Sale" lists posted everywhere, every day, but many of the apps on the App Santa list this year are the crème de la crème.
Tweetbot 3, Screens, PCalc, Launch Center Pro, Day One, Deliveries, Next, Soulver, TextExpander 3, Drafts 4 and a whole heck of a lot more.
I will be purchasing Screens (for iOS and OS X), which I mentioned just the other day. I'm constantly reading about the value of applications and how app developers deserve more for their work. I wholeheartedly agree. But who doesn't mentally double-check their wallet before purchasing something? I know I do. I have to, with a mortgage, car payments, five kids, etc. It is never a matter of how much value there is in an extremely useful application. There are many developers I'd love to throw money at. But my wallet says otherwise, and that's that. Saving $$$ whenever I can– whenever you can– is smart.
