App Santa 2013 (teaser 001)

With less than 24 hours until the annual App Store holiday freeze, developers are pushing out last-minute app updates like crazy.

But more importantly, ’tis the season when not-to-be-missed promotions and discounts become available as an early Christmas present.

Cody yesterday covered a bunch of notable iOS games discounts from the likes of Disney, Warner Bros and others and today a brand new holiday deal on iPhone and iPad apps goes live to help your wallet.

App Santa, a collaborative effort by high-profile developers, is offering deep discounts on fifteen popular iPhone and iPad applications, including 1Password, Tweetbot 3, Launch Center Pro, Screens, Clear+ and more. You can grab these fine apps with as much as 60 percent discount. Your download links are right after the break…

From App Santa:

Naughty or nice, App Santa brings you the best deals on apps from some of the most popular developers on the App Store!

I’ve been very naughty this year!

Anyways, here are your discounted apps, in no particular order:

  • 1Password by AgileBits – $9.99 [40+ percent off, normally $17.99]
  • PrinterPro by Readdle – $2.99 [50+ percent off, normally $6.99] – Review
  • Clear+ by Realmac Software – $1.99 [60 percent off, normally $4.99]
  • PCalc by TLA Systems – $6.99 [30 percent off, normally $9.99]
  • Calendars 5 by Readdle – $2.99 [50+ percent off, normally $6.99] – Review
  • Day One by Bloom Built – $2.99 [40 percent off, normally $4.99]
  • PDF Converter by Readdle – $2.99 [50+ percent off, normally $6.99] – Overview
  • Screens VNC by Edovia – $14.99 [25 percent off, normally $19.99]

  • Tweetbot 3 by Tapbots – $1.99 [60 percent off, normally $4.99] – Overview
  • Vesper by Q Branch – $2.99 [40 percent off, normally $4.99] – Overview

Any of these is admittedly an excellent piece of software in its own right.

Folks who’ve been on the fence of buying one of these apps should take action.

If I had to pick my favorite, it’d be 1Password.

By the way, AgileBits is celebrating that 1Password made it on MacWorld’s and Apple’s Mac App Store Best of 2013 list so they’re discounting the Mac edition by 30 percent.

You can pick up 1Password for Mac from the Mac App Store for $34.99 for a limited time, normally a $49.99 value.

And, there really is no reason not to pick up the new Tweetbot now.

This promotion will only last for the holidays.

Do you see any personal favorites of yours on App Santa’s list?

    Launch Center Pro – Yay/nay?

    • Martynas Linkevicius

      I say yay!

    • Awesome idea at first. Gets pretty old fast. It’s just another step to perform. It’s designed well though.

      It’s good for finding out URL schemes. Just this week I wanted to make a Safari bookmarklet that would take the hostname of the currently active tab in Safari and search for it in 1Password to bring up any saved passwords so I can copy it across to Safari. The problem was I could not remember the URL scheme. Launch Center Pro played a great part in helping me find the URL scheme…

    • I bought this when it was just Launch Center and now I have to repurchase this again, but today I just found out they are on sale 🙁

    Perfect Weather by Contrast – $1.99 [40 percent off, normally $1.99]
    Hopefully this is a typo, cause it doesn’t look like a good deal to me.

    I just purchased Tweetbot 3.. great app!

    Too bad there’s no discount on the Clear Mac Application. I already have the Clear and Clear+ app but would like to buy the Mac application too. At its current price though no way!
