The Apple Store app, a program for iPhone and iPod touch that keeps users up-to-date on items, orders and sales at retail Apple Stores, is celebrating the new year by offering a fitness app, 7 Minute Workout Challenge
, free to users. To get it, one must download and install the free Apple Store app on their mobile device. Apple has also made the classic arcade game Pac-Man
its "App of the Week," making it free for the first time ever.
Following last week's offering of Readdle's Scanner Pro
, the new "App of the Week" is the Namco-Bandai arcade classic, Pac-Man. The program has varied in price since its first appearance on iOS back in 2011, vacillating between $7 and $1 in various promotions, but has never been made free before.
For those who want the app but don't want to install the Apple Store app first, 7 Minute Workout Challenge
is also available for $1 from the iTunes App Store. In addition to a touch-optimized replica of the original Pac-Man
experience, the app offers eight new mazes (as an in-app purchase) and bonus "ghost-free" modes. The game also features two different control modes, three levels of game difficulty and Retina display support. It will be free for the next week.
