What do people think about Store News 1.1?
"I think this is one of the most useful Apps on the Store. I just caught an app go up for free just for the weekend period. Next to it are apps that generates $$ for you but you mostly have to do some work. This does the work for you. It's like a broker that gets you the best deals!" (Rating: 5 of 5 stars)
"Nice app. Quick and easy way to see what's on sale or what is now free. Glad Apple didn't give them a hard time about the app icon because it really is a good companion to the mac app store. It's nice to see sales on the bigger more expensive apps like Call of Duty 4: MW (was $49.99 on sale for $24.99)." (Rating: 5 of 5 stars)
