Apple celebrates five years of the App Store with five free apps and five free games

Apple's celebrating the App Store's fifth birthday by offering free apps

Can you believe it's been five years since the App Store was born? They grow up so fast.

Apple's celebrating the App Store's fifth birthday by offering folks a number of significant and popular apps for the low, low price of nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zip. The big goose egg. Free.

There are five apps and five games (I see there's a whole "five" theme going on here) available for download, all of which are significant in some way: On the app side, you can pick up the Barefoot World Atlas, diary/journal app Day One, How to Cook Everything, photo-captioning software Over, and the normally US$20 Traktor DJ iPhone.

If games are more your thing, the Apple Design Award winner Badland is up for grabs, along with the popular Infinity Blade II, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP (one of my favorites), the kindly avians of Tiny Wings, and Disney's hit Where's My Water?

That's a lot of great games and apps, to be sure, and maybe you'll even be encouraged to browse the aisles and spend some of your hard-earned money on the thousands of other great options. Remember, you can snap these up for only a little while, else you might have to wait for another big App Store birthday to roll around.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
