Reg. $3 Free


Well, Apple was a little bit late updating the App Store this week, likely due to the holiday frenzy. But we are now seeing Artie’s Magic Pencil as the App Store’s new Free App of the Week. Regularly listed at $2.99, this is the very first time we have seen the app go free on the App Store.

We also have some of the best gaming console bundle deals live now as part of early Cyber Monday events at Amazon, Target and more.

And remember we have rounded up all the Best Black Friday iOS & Mac App/Game Sales in one handy place: BADLAND 2, Heads Up, Kingdom Rush, MacID, Pixelmator, Fantastical, many more.

There’s a monster on the loose and it’s destroying everything in its way! Save the day and help Artie to rebuild his world, using a very special magic pencil. In a land where basic shapes are the building blocks, children can be the hero whilst learning how simple triangles, squares and circles come together to create everything they see around them, from a butterfly to a building, and a car to an ice cream shop!
