App Friday: Last Price Changes of 2011

This is the last “LIVE” App Friday of the year because iTunes Connect (the developer portal where price changes are scheduled) will be closing for the holidays. Everyone is in a scramble before the price freeze, so our post this week is overflowing with apps. Some sales have been going all week, some will last through the end of the year, and some are just for today. But as of Friday December 16th, here are some deals on the table. Please click the app images to read the iTunes App Descriptions and Reviews before downloading. It’s a diverse post with veterans and newbies side-by-side, and we hope you find something you like!

Last Download Party of 2011!
