It's Friday, so you know what that means: devs are knocking some dollar dollar bills off their normal app pricing in order to move more copies from the Store to your device. Also, I'd like to think they're being generous and trying to give everyone something to do over the weekend (or a good way to start killing time on a Friday).

We're looking at a fairly short list this week, with the most notable title being Real Boxing – a normally $5 title going for just a buck.

EDGE actually has a pretty interesting story behind the sale: apparently, the developer of the game – Mobigame – has been in a legal battle over the name "EDGE" for the past few years. Finally, they won the suit, as the original trademark holder could not defend having the name since he was doing nothing with it. Big score for Mobigames! To celebrate, they decided to knock half the price off.

So there you go – whether you're a boxing fan, looking for a fun way to kill some time, or just want to take better pictures, today's the day to snag a good deal.

    Real boxing is a great deal for a buck.

    I just read the EDGE story you linked using the text "a pretty interesting story behind the sale:"

    That story pissed me off so much, I'm not going to go anywhere near the $0.99 sale on EDGE. Instead, I'm going to wait until it goes back to full price, THEN I'm going to buy it, and I'm going to email a copy of my receipt to that prick, Langdell. It doesn't even look like a game that I'll particularly enjoy, but $5 is a cheap way to send a nice, big FU to that scumbag.

      Edge and Edge Ex are actually really good. I grabbed the latter from a free Amazon app of the day, but bought it just now on Google Play because I like it a lot.

      I also got it to celebrate his victory. Grabbed Real Boxing too, which is a steal at a buck.

      agreed, what a douche. the legal system should only be there so people can get justice, not so people can make money off it. he should be stripped of the trademark.

    Somehow, whenever I read about Grow I get excited and then immediately disappointed that it's not this GROW (and its sequels): http://www.eyezmaze.com/grow/rpg/
