From time to time, app and entertainment companies like to promote their creative wares with a promotional price-drop. But unless you’ve constantly got your eye on the App Store or iTunes, the chances of you coming across them in time is remote.
That’s where CheapCharts comes in handy to automatically track the apps that best suit you. It’s a free, easy-to-use app that lets you keep track of price trends and set relevant alerts. It enables you to be as specific or general as you wish with your preferences, not only showcasing bargain apps that you have your eye on but highlighting lots that you may not. You may never have to pay full price again.
1 Select the media
By tapping the menu in the top-left corner of the screen, you can view the range of media tracked by CheapCharts. Tap the type of entertainment you’re after or select Apps.
2 Choose the chart
As well as enabling you to search for a specific title, you can see the most popular items on iTunes and the App Store, or tap Apps on Sale to see the most recent discounts.
3 Narrow down results
Toggle between iPhone or iPad apps, singles or albums, and movie rentals or purchases. View genres and tap Latest Price Changes to sort by rating, price, savings and date.
4 Watch and hear
As well as toggling between HD/SD and filtering by IMDb ratings, you can watch trailers. There are also previews for singles and albums via an integrated player.
5 Filter prices
CheapCharts also lets you view media by price. Select Price Filter from the main menu and on the results page you’ll see various price bands to suit your budget.
6 Set price alerts
Swipe left and tap the star button on any app or media that you want to monitor for price drops. Consider activating Push Notifications too so that you can quickly bag a bargain.
