Apple Launches Free App of the Week Promotion

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Apple has announced that it's getting involved in the free app game as part of its ongoing "app of the week" campaign. First up is Cut the Rope: Experiments, which is currently available as a free download — making it the first paid app to be discounted to free by Apple.

Elsewhere, Apple has also rolled out new "editors' choice" branding, which promotes apps that are currently in favour. Currently, that includes Facebook Camera, Extreme Skater, Air Mail, and Sketchbook Ink. [via The Verge]
