- 1 Games
- 2 Tools
- 3 Music Apps
It's Friday, at least here in the western hemisphere, and a bunch developers seem to have decided to discount their apps. Everything from triple-A games to handy tools are on sale up to 80%. Some have even gone free. Without any further ado, let's get to the deals - if you can't see the widgets right away, wait for the page to load them all. Keep in mind that the widgets below may not reflect current prices.
EPOCH, an impressive Unreal-powered cover shooter, is on sale just a couple of weeks after its Android debut. Normally $4.99, you can pick it up for just a buck right now, a savings of 80%. We've got a review coming for EPOCH tomorrow, but I can tell you right now, it's well worth a dollar if you're a fan of console-style third person shooters.
Gangstar Rio: City of Saints
Gameloft's organized crime opus Gangstar Rio: City of Saints is $4.99, normally $6.99, a savings of 30%. This game is a rip-off of Saints Row, which in turn borrows liberally from Grand Theft Auto, so Gameloft is taking its usual barely-restrained antics to the next level. Even so, there's plenty out there who love the kooky series.
BulkyPix has two games for 50% off each: the thriller-adventure game Yesterday (now $2.99) and the tower defense shooter Redneck Revenge (now just a buck). Both have been well-received, but if you like old-school point-and-click adventure games, you'll want to pounce on Yesterday in particular.
To wrap up our games we've got a couple of physics puzzlers and an old-school Breakout clone. Bridge Constructor is half off for $2.99, 101 Crane Missions is 66% of for one dollar, and Deflection is now completely free.

Root Call Blocker Pro
Root Call Blocker is a savior for those afflicted with chronic telemarketers. It isn't the prettiest app around, but it's gotten a Holo update since we reported on it a couple of years ago, and it's as useful as ever. Root Call Blocker is just $2.99 this weekend, down 57% from its regular price of $6.99.
Mobile Doc Scanner (MDScan)
The interface on Mobile Doc Scanner isn't much, but it's undeniably useful. Take a photo of a document, and this app will realign and clean the photo, turning your phone into a quick and dirty scanner. Scanned docs are output to PDF. It's on sale for 80%, just a dollar.
Oxford Advanced Learner's 8
Here's a double dose of language tools: the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary and the ad-free Dictionary.com app. The former is half off (but still pretty expensive) at $14.99, while the latter is 66% off, for just a buck.
Call Notes Pro Sale
Finally, we've got some more pedestrian tools in Call Notes Pro and Mighty Grocery Shopping List. The notation app is 75% off at one dollar, while the grocery list is half off for $1.99.

n7music Player Full Version Unlocker
We've featured the n7music Player before. It's got one of the most adaptable and unique interfaces out there, along with a fully integrated file browser (handy for finding those downloaded tracks or podcasts without messing with your Google Play Music playlist). The unlock app is $1.99 today, 33% off.
GoneMAD Music Player Unlocker
The GoneMAD player has a small but dedicated userbase, who appreciates support for massive libraries (50,000 songs or more) and incredibly dense equalizer options. The unlocker is on sale for just a dollar, an impressive 75% off.
Most of the apps above are on sale for this weekend only. If you want to take advantage of the low prices, move now, not later.
