[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany - Indie app developer Slappstick today is pleased to announce an update of their popular Mac application AppyDays, which tracks currently discounted apps for the Mac App Store as well as the iOS App Store for both iPhone and iPad. Sporting a slick and simple UI, the application focuses on bringing the most current App Store discounts at the users fingertips.
Added in the update was an option to only display popular apps, which is especially useful for a better overview of the huge amounts of price drops for iPhone and iPad applications. That way, users only see apps that have received a certain amount of downloads. Already introduced in the last update, but now more refined is the menu bar mode, a much requested feature, which allows the user to launch AppyDays in the menu bar at the top of the screen, so there's no application window in the way when it's not needed. Another feature on the changelog for v1.3 is certainly, that clicking on apps has been improved in a way, that no external browser has to be launched anymore. Instead, users now are being led directly to the Mac App Store or iTunes application.
Slappstick is focused on continually improving AppyDays for Mac while maintaining its simplicity.
