When not-free it's like $5, so it may be not-bad.

In the longest week of App Store history since MacNN was keeping records, they have yet to change it.

Apple wants to give you as much time as possible to grab a new one. They're always looking out for the customer.

Still the Avengers.

If Steve was in charge the App of the Week team would have committed ritual suicide by now. That was part of the contract.

You can still download it on your Mac and throw it on your *next* iPad.

BTW, flightboard was actually useful on my recent trip. It had gate numbers to go to for our transfers. Recommend.

This isn't Official Free of the Week, but it's free and lego-like, so here it is:

App Store - Gesundheit!

Thanks to Andi for the link! Google felt like giving me the Canadian store today.

Huh. You linked to the US store, but I get an error message saying that app isn't available in the US store.

I'm guessing you are using a non-iOS device.

On my phone it asked me if I wanted to switch to the Canadian store, and had "ca" in the link where it should say "us".

Then Google gave me what looked like the New Zealand store ("nz" in the link). That seemed to function, but I decided yours was the best bet.

Looks like they're splitting iPhone and iPad apps of the week. This may have to do with PopCap making a sequel, and wanting to soak up the last bits of gravy from in-app purchases. Normally a $5 app.

App Store - Plants vs. Zombies HD for iPad.

Reason #621 why PvZ is awesome.

A few years back there were these ridiculous ads for a crap online Civ clone spamming the innertubes.

And that would explain why something in the book category is in the Top 10. Don't remember seeing that happen often.
