[prMac.com] Cheltenham, United Kingdom - Premium gift planning app for iPhone will be free for another few days
No More Socks for iPhone experienced an incredible 900% increase in downloads after being made available for free on Friday (28th October).
We are ecstatic that so many people will be using No More Socks to plan their Christmas this year. Consequently, we have extended the price-drop and No More Socks will be available on the App Store for free until this Sunday evening (6th November).
No More Socks for iPhone is the ultimate gift list & gift buying toolset and normally sells on the App Store for 1.99 / US$1.49. The app is useful all year round for keeping track of ideas for presents and people's birthdays, but is particularly relevant in the lead up to Christmas.
As people are starting to think about the presents they need to buy, we decided to offer No More Socks for free over the weekend in order to reach people who perhaps wouldn't normally purchase this kind of app.
The response has been overwhelming, with a huge increase in downloads of over 900% in a single day alone.
We are so pleased that so many people are downloading, using and enjoying No More Socks that we will continue to offer it free of charge until Sunday night (6th November).
