For those who haven’t heard of Two Dollar Tuesday – you are seriously missing out. It is an initiative started up to help smaller and independent Mac developers to gain more revenue and sales by cutting the price of the app to a mere $2. Last week, Dropzone reached the number 2 spot on the Top Productivity Apps and saw a massive 6,700 sales in one day.
Remember these deals are only valid on Tuesday so try to grab them whilst they’re still hot! For more information about the Two Dollar Tuesday initiative, head over to their website.
So, without further ado, here are this week’s $2 app deals.
Forget the clutter of Microsoft Word and Pages. WriteRoom allows you to simply write in a completely distraction-free full-screen environment, allowing you to focus on the writing in hand and not get disturbed by text formatting and font size. Although it is a very basic word-processing program (you can’t insert pictures, graphs, tables or anything similar), if you want to do some quiet writing, WriteRoom is your best option. The app syncs with Dropbox and is available for the iPhone / iPod touch as well, ensuring everything is in constant sync.
Chronicle is a great little app to help you manage your finances. It includes a reminder to tell you when bills are due, a tool to manage your debt and repayments and a monthly spending chart. The app integrates well with iCal and comes with a free companion app, Chronicle Mini, meaning you can view which bills are due directly from the menu bar.
If you’re a web or app developer, then CodeBox is the tool for you. It allows you to manage your “snippets” (or little pieces of code) easily and effectively. Think of it as an advanced code clipboard. The app sorts out each snippet into a relevant code library (which is especially useful if you are programming in several languages) and you can access your snippet library easily from the menu bar.
