XCOM Enemy Unknown (Windows screenshot 002)

In addition to the various Black Friday deals on iPhones, iPads and other products, we’re also expecting to see a number of software sales as well. In fact, a couple have already popped up, which you can see here and here.

And today we’ve learned of two more apps that have gone on sale for the holiday weekend: 1Password and XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Both have been discounted down to $9.99 from their usual $17.99 and $19.99 price tags…


1Password for iOS (teaser 004)

For those unfamiliar with 1Password, it’s a very popular password manager for iOS and Mac. This week’s sale appears to be for the iPhone/iPad version only. We love 1Password so much that it made our Best iPhone app list.

“1Password is a password manager that goes beyond simple password storage by integrating directly with your web browser to automatically log you into websites, enter credit card information, fill registration forms, and easily generate strong passwords.

Your passwords, identities, and credit cards, are just some of the confidential information that 1Password stores in one secure place, protected by the only password you will need to remember.”

If you’re interested, you can find 1Password for both the iPhone and iPad in the App Store for $9.99.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

XCOM Enemy Unknown

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a turn-based tactical role-playing game that first landed on iOS back in June. It’s a port of the popular PC/console series, and has received many glowing reviews for its gameplay and in-depth storyline.

“Threatened by an unknown enemy, Earth’s governments unite to form an elite paramilitary organization, known as XCOM. As the commander of XCOM, you must create a fully operational base, research alien technologies, plan combat missions, and lead your soldiers in fierce battles against a terrifying alien invasion. The decisions you make will affect the fate of humanity. You are our last hope.”

If you’re interested, you can find XCOM: Enemy Unknown for both the iPhone and iPad in the App Store for $9.99.

Keep in mind that we’re not sure when these deals will expire and the apps will go back to their full prices. But given that they both seem to be Thanksgiving/Black Friday related sales, we imagine they’ll be here through the weekend.

    WOW, both are still kinda pricey

  • f1ght3r

    i don’t see the point of 1 password with iOS keychain.

  • Bob

    1Password suck, if you use 1password on Mac/Windows & iPhone they want you to buy it 3 times. Which is why I pirate it.

    • NaSty

      lol, i know what you mean, sometimes these developers force your hand

      • pnh

        Stupid comment. That means if a BMW costs $60K instead of $20K it’s okay to steal it?

      • Bob

        You know it’s nothing like that. Horrible analogy.

        I would happily pay for it, but when they want you to buy it 3 times, come on.

        It’s like having a DVD player in 3 rooms and having to buy the same movie 3 times if you want to watch it on more than one DVD player.

      • NaSty

        You obviously didnt understand what i meant -_-

      You don’t have to pirate everything, 1Password is probably the most useful app on my iPhone and its well worth the 18 bucks I bought it for.

    • nemopsp

      Yes I kno what you mean… Same with tweetbot an clear an fantastical 2, I won’t buy them cause they jus updated the app for iOS7 an want you to rebuy them after you bought they but I don’t own 1Password but I did buy XCOM for $9.99 an it’s an amazing game, if ur into 3rd person Tactical shooters! Definitely worth the price it’s a full console / PC port

  • Salman Arif

    I just bought 1Password iOS yesterday, at full price. Ah well…

  • Luis M. Maldonado

    Which one is better 1Password or OneSafe??.. I see a lot of negatives reviews about 1Password compared to OneSafe!

  • Falk M.

    Why should I want to lock myself into buying their stuff almost yearly if not yearly, just to stay compatible and secure? Doesn’t make sense.

    I pass, way too pricey for such oft major-version updated software.
    WAY too pricey for too simple a task.
