Black Friday iPhone App Sale

App StoreAlong with all the sales today, developers are also putting apps on sale. Here’s a list of some of the better deals I’ve found. Again, if you find any others, let us know in the comments.


PING!Ping! which used to be free and then recently raised their price to $0.99 is now free again for Black Friday. Ping is an instant messeger app with push notifications. You can only talk from Ping! to Ping! app but if you’re looking to save on text messaging this is a great app. A recently new feature is the ability to send picture. This feature is an in app purchase upgrade of $0.99. iTunes Link

TomTomHonestly, even with the sale price, I still think the TomTom app is way over priced, but if you’ve been waiting for it to go on sale and $69.99 is a good deal to you, then today’s your day. Personally I’m looking for a price more like $29.99. This is pricing for the US and Canada version. Original price is $99.99. Price good through Monday, November 30th. iTunes Link

ColorTiltColorTilt, a popular finger painting program, is on sale for $0.99 along with all five of their apps. These include ColorTouch, Dotty Shapes, Hold On! and Serpents all for $0.99. iTunes Link

TomTom Creates Car Kit Giving First Gen iPhone and iPod Touch GPS Capability

##ICON_NAME## Earlier this week, TomTom updated their app allowing the TomTom applications to be installed on the first gen iPhone and the first and second gen iPod touches. Previously, the app could only be installed on the iPhone 3G and 3GS. With the update to the app comes a new product… a TomTom Car Kit for the iPod touch.

The iPod touch Car Kit is priced at $99.95 ($20 less than the iPhone Car Kit). The Kit is currently not available and based on the iPhone Car Kit who knows when they will have it ready! Just kidding! They say it is coming soon and it can already be seen on TomTom’s website.

TomTom Car Kit Finally Available – Sort Of

##ICON_NAME## Ok, we have been doing this TomTom Car Kit thing for almost two months now, but it seems that they might finally be getting down to business… sort of. The TomTom Car Kit is now displayed on both the Apple Store and TomTom’s website however, there are a few catches.

First, the price now seems to be $119.95 instead of the announced price of $99.99. Second, the Apple Store says that the product is, “Currently Unavailable” and TomTom’s website says that it is, “Currently not available through” So, although it seems to be “ready”, they obviously are not shipping yet.

Basically, they have already delayed the Kit once so instead of delaying it again (missing their October deadline) and looking really bad, they have put the item up so it looks available when really… it’s not.
