Two Dollar Tuesday Deals This Week

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.

WriteRoom icon


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.

Price: $9.99 – $2.00
App Store Link: WriteRoom
Developer: Hog Bay Software



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.

Price: $14.99 – $2.00
App Store Link: Chronicle
Developer: LittleFin LLC



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.

Price: $11.99 – $2.00
App Store Link: CodeBox
Developer: Vadim Shpakovski

  • These are great! Just spent $6 and I couldn’t be happier.

  • Ok, I have been keeping an eye out for a good code storage/organisational tool, and thought I would give Codebox a go, for $2 you can’t really go wrong.

    Well I just bought it from the app store and installed it, but nothing happens when I try open it, nothing at all! Now when I go to the app store, It sawy I have downloaded it from somewhere else, and If I download it from the app store it will charge me another $2! WTF?!? Also the link above for Codebox goes to the “WriteRoom” App website!

    Anyone know what the hell is going on here?

    • I got this installed in the end, not sure what the problem was but after resetting, reinstalling the app it was working. Also had contact from the developer after he saw my comment here, so good to know the codebox app has an active and helpful developer behind it!

  • I followed the AppStore links and Chronicle and CodeBox are full price, not $2

    • The deals are available on Tuesday only. Hence the website name. Once it’s Tuesday in your region, you should be all set. :)

      • It’s Tuesday 20:19 where I live, but Writeroom’s only $4.99. :(

      • Wait! I realized that I clicked on the iTunes link for Writeroom for iOS. Went over to the Mac App Store and saw the $1.99 discount.

        Sorry about that. Happy Two-dollar Tuesday to everyone! :)

  • The Codebox links to Writeroom :-)

    • Fixed it :-) thanks for pointing that out.

  • Grabbed me a copy of WriteRoom. For $2, you can’t go wrong. Love TwoDollarTues! :D

  • 2 bucks for CodeBox, oh yeah!
