Freemium is the new way to sell apps on the App Store it seems. Following the insane success of Temple Run in 2012, more developers are jumping on the Freemium bandwagon, EA included. The latest in its series of Real Racing titles has just been launched on the App Store and it costs nothing to download. What’s more, unlike the first and second versions, it’s a universal download, meaning it’s optimized for every iDevice. Obviously, your experience is enhanced using in-app purchasing. But, considering this is likely to be the best racing game of the year, you’re not going to lose anything by downloading it. The graphics and gameplay teasers we’ve been seeing for the past few months are nothing short of spectacular.
