expiredGames/Apps: Things task manager for iOS from $5 (Reg. up to $20), Clear for iOS from $2, amiibo from $7, freebies, more

In today’s best game/app deals, the iOS and Mac App Stores have exploded with top-notch productivity app sales. We have already brought you deep disocunts on Deliveries for iOS and the best password manager out there: 1Password, but it doesn’t stop there. The popular Things task manager app has gone 50% off on iPhone, iPad and the Mac this morning. Things for iPhone is $5 (Reg. $10), Things for iPad is $10 (Reg. $20) and Things for Mac is $25 (Reg. $50). That’s matching the lowest we have ever seen on the Mac version (which was way back in 2013). And while we did see the iPad and iPhone versions go free once back in November 2014, this is the best price we have seen since on both of them. The three apps combine for a 4 star rating from over 22,000 reviewers.

Next, we have another popular task manager app: Clear – Tasks, Reminders & To-Do Lists for iOS down at $2 (Reg. $5) or on the Mac for $5 (Reg. $10). Outside of a 2 day deal back 2014, this is matching the lowest we have seen the iOS version go for, and matching the lowest we have seen for the Mac version. They combine for a 4 star rating from nearly 9,000 reviewers.

R.O.B. Famicom Colors amiibo is up for pre-order, along with Street Fighter’s Ryu amiibo, both for $12.99 each. Ganondorf, Mewtwo and Link amiibo are all down at $9.99 Prime shipped each on Amazon and Chibi-Robo has dropped below $7 Prime shipped (Reg. $13). And over on the PlayStation Store, Sony has kicked off digital sales for Batman/Warner Bros. games, 2K titles and much more.

Down below you’ll find today’s iOS/Mac price drops including Genius Scan+ – PDF Scanner, Duet Display, Ultimate Guitar Tabs, Notability, Affinity Designer and more. Android gamers will want to check out Need for Speed Most Wanted down at just $0.10 and the Zelda Twilight Princess HD Official Hardcover Game Guide (pre-order) is still $24 Prime shipped (Reg. $40).
