Happy Holidays! As holidays have started, Microsoft has created a special category in the Windows Store called “Great offers on apps.” From this special category, you can buy some of the best apps for Windows 8 at special prices, you can even get premium Windows apps or games for free.
The description of the “Great offers on apps” reads, “Check out these offers and save some money. You’ll find great apps, subscriptions and premium services for a reduce price or, in some cases, for free! The fine print: offers valid through January 31, 2013 (while supplies last), in the Windows Store, in the United States only and made available by the app publishers, not Microsoft.”
So, if you are living in the United States of America, you can get these Windows apps at special prices or for free. At the time of writing, we noticed, six Windows apps available for download. The six Windows apps available for download are:
