Apple’s iOS and Mac users with an eye for a bargain regularly find themselves trawling through the relevant App Stores looking for a bargain in the form of a discounted app. Some of the better known titles regularly offer price promotions along the lines of ‘50% off for a limited time’, and in some instances some actually discount the app entirely. In recognition of those who love a good money-saving deal, Apple has now put together a “Get Productive” app sale that has many popular titles heavily discounted by 50-percent for a limited period.

Some of the apps included in the sale have been popping up on the iOS App Store as being discounted over the last few days. Apple has now taken an official approach to this and collated all of the discounted apps together into one financially prudent location. These aren’t just your run of the mill throwaway apps either. There are some genuinely excellent titles available that are not only heavily discounted, but will also assist with productivity on an individual or professional basis.
