    I did that one year, too, and yes, it's a lot of work, epecially the last 2 days before Appstore shutdown, when all prices race to the bottom.

    This is very nice of you Hoggy!
    Thank you for your hard work. I will be keeping up to date with this thread over the coming days!#

    I'm still not entirely sure when the majority of the sales happen though..? before or after the lockout? So either we will get a huge overload of sales in the next 4 days.. Or.. Will some devs wait until after Christmas, instead, and put their games on sale after the lockout period has ended on the 27th?

    Umm, excuse for my silly question, what does app store shutdown relate to?

    Will we not be able to buy apps or games on those days?
    Or something else, sorry, i am kinda new to ios ecosystem.

    No new apps, no updates, no price change. You still can buy anything.

    Thanks Hoggy110 for the thread. With the appstore freeze hitting Saturday it seems like we'll have a little more time before things lock up.

    Of course devs can still give away codes to games like EA did last year with their "Daily Spin" promotion. So prices may not adjust during the freeze, but there could still be some nice surprises... not that I really need any more games.

    This year it goes from Friday 20 December to Friday 27 December. They do it every year. I guess a Christmas break.

    Funny that Gameloft, not that I need anything, seems to shy away from big holiday sales lately.
