16 temporarily free and 17 on-sale apps and games for Wednesday

Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. While today's sales list is on the shorter side, I still have a few standouts to share with everyone. First up is a discount for Monopoly Sudoku, a newer release from Marmalade Game Studio, a developer that offers many Hasbro-themed games. Next, I have FolderSync Pro, a simple file explorer that supports the cloud as well as local storage. Last is DISTRAINT: Deluxe Edition, which goes on sale often, but is still a worthwhile adventure game if you've yet to play. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier.
