App Price Drop – March 3rd, 2009

Loads of worthwhile apps on sale, including the impressive robot shooter in ExZeus, Dungeon & Hero and a great word game in WordJong. GL Golf Standard, a very solid golf title which we recently reviewed (Deluxe version) can be had for only $0.99. If you’re looking for a good IM app, look no further as the best in the business BeejiveIM is now only $9.99. A cheaper alternative in IM+ is priced at only a buck. Finally, if you’re not aware of IUGO’s huge $10,000 contest, they’ve lowered their prices on all Toy Bot Diaries apps to get even more people in on the fun. Be sure to check the entire price drop list after the break!
