Update: Mac App Deals is again posting deals in the Mac App Store. Please disregard this post.
The Mac App Store has been out for over a month now and it has become a new way for many people to discover new apps. There have also been many new developers coming to the Mac to take advantage of the new store, and dozens of new apps are added to the Mac App Store every day. If you have followed the App Store at all, you know that price changes happen like crazy. The same is becoming true of the Mac App Store.
Keeping up with every price drop in the Mac App Store would be far too much for us to be able to handle, especially when another website is already doing it beautifully. We are therefore announcing that Mac App Deals will not be covering Mac App Store deals.
The best way to follow deals in the Mac App Store is with App Shopper. It regularly updates with price changes and updates to any Mac app in the Mac App Store. You can even sign up for a free account and search for Mac apps you want, and it can send you an email when that app drops in price in the Mac App Store. On the right hand side of the page, you will find a list of many RSS feeds including one called “All Mac App Price Drops.” This way you can get updated when any app drops in price. For your convenience, we have added a section on the right side of Mac App Deals to displays the 60 most recent price drops from this RSS feed.
(Note to developers: The best way to do an introductory sale might be to start your app at it’s normal price and then immediately drop it to the introductory price so it shows up as a price drop.)
Mac App Deals will continue to run, covering all deals on Mac apps and bundles sold outside of the Mac App Store. Though we will not post Mac App Store deals, we would love to help promote apps in it by giving away promo codes. Developers can contact us if they would like to send us some codes to give away.
Finally, if anyone is interesting in purchasing Mac App Deals to take it to the next level, please contact us for more information.
