Update (12/22 11:30am): There appears to be an issue with this deal, as the listing seems to have disappeared from the App Store completely. We will update this post as more information comes available.

As you have likely noticed from our daily app roundups and Holiday Game/App Sale post, hundreds of top-notch iOS/Mac apps are on sale for the holidays. Both the popular Hitman iOS games have now dropped from as much $5 down to just $1 each, but things get even better with the Essentials pack. Square Enix is now offering both Hitman: Sniper and Hitman GO as part of the Hitman Essentials bundle for just $1.

This deal is also the very best price we have ever tracked on Hitman: Sniper since its release back in June.

As for Android gamers, both titles are on sale over at Google Play with Hitman GO available for $1 and Hitman: Sniper down to just $0.50.

Disney’s award-winning Animated iPad app offers a deep dive into the creative process behind these stories through “interactive images, animated clips with frame-by-frame control, Disney 3D characters to animate, and a rich timeline of all 53 Walt Disney Animation Studio features.” In 2013 Apple named Animated the iPad App of the Year.

Disney Animated is usually priced at $9.99, but it dropped down to a historical low of just $2.99 this morning. Heads up this app is massive.

ios-8-apps-games-bundles-new

Apple unleashed iOS 8 yesterday, which it calls “the biggest iOS release ever.” Perhaps lost in the craziness of its release was the fact that App Store developers can now offer app bundles. You’ll find a new “Bundles” section on the App Store with a number of discounted bundles from popular developers.

The bundles are separated into three sections: App Bundles, Game Bundles and Kids Bundles. With anywhere from 2 to 9 apps per bundle, users have the option to only pay for the apps in a given bundle they don’t already own by paying the difference.

There are some discounts to be had here from a number of highly rated developers, here are a few of our top picks:  expand full story

1password-deal-ios-app

Update (9/17 1:35pm): 1Password 5.0 for iOS is now available as a freemium download with in-app purchases for Pro features. Read more about this update here. All 1Password 4 for iOS customers will receive version 5.0 (along with all Pro features) for free. The deal below for version 4.5.3 is no longer available.

Late last night, 1Password for iOS (iPhone/iPad) dropped from $9.99 all the way down to free. This is the very first time that we’ve ever seen this insanely popular password manager available at no cost.

Simply put, we love this program for its simplicity, ease of use and rock solid security. 1Password acts as a vault for all of your website logins, credit card information and other confidential data. Users create one (long and strong) password which gives them access to the app and all of their information. It features a password generation tool to create crazy secure passwords and then remembers them so you don’t have to. Get the Mac version for $49.99.

Hungry for more app deals? Save 25% on a $100 iTunes gift card.

Full disclosure: the 1Password team has said that this pricing may be the result of an App Store error related to the release of iOS 8. As such, we’re not sure how long this pricing will last and if it was indeed an error, what (if any) actions 1Password and/or iTunes will take after it returns to full price. It’s also possible that 1Password for iOS 8 may be going freemium, but the in-app purchases aren’t yet active.
