Christmas is now literally just a couple of days away, and although we’ve seen a number of online retailers offering some excellent discounts on mobile smartphones and tablets, what about deals pertaining to apps that are installed on those devices? It’s all well and good having the latest iPhone 6s or getting to grips with Apple’s iPad Pro on Christmas morning, or even opening up a shiny new MacBook Pro, but it’s much better to be able to get up to 80% off of some of the best apps available for those platforms. Enter – App Santa sale, which brings you those excellent discounts across iOS and OS X apps.

The App Santa sale is essentially a group of indie developers clubbing together to offer promotional discounts on their products around the holiday season. The developers in question are generally those who design and develop popular apps for iPhone, iPad, and Mac, and are often those individuals behind the products that generally carry a relatively premium price-tag. Hence the annual gesture of goodwill.


This year’s App Santa sale launches today, December 22nd, and will run through until the end of Christmas Day with some excellent deals on the apps listed below.
