If you read my article on Scanner Pro last week, you know that iTunes’s App of the Week is one of my favorite Apple services in the App Store. While I know it’s great for developers to get their apps out there, and that’s probably why they do it, I personally just love it for the free apps. I hate paying for apps (I know, I’m cheap and don’t support developers like I should), so there’s just something satisfying for me to see a normally paid app go free for the week.
In this week’s App of the Week (aka my next download), Apple has listed Pac-Man as the app to go free. Yes, the incredibly popular and old school arcade game, which made its way over to the iPhone a while ago, is going free as part of Apple’s promotional deal. The app, version 5.0, was recently updated to include Retina screen support and new mazes, so it should look good on just about any device you want to use.
The downside to this app is the fact that only the original maze is free, while all others are $0.99 in-app purchases, or you can buy all eight at one time for $2.99. If you’re interested in checking out Pac-Man for iOS, be sure to head on over to the iOS App Store. Also, be sure to let me know what you think of the app (or let me know if my obsession with free apps is too much) in the comments section below, or on Twitter at @TiP_Griffin.
