Apple is not known for giving things away for free, but there have been glimpses over the years of its kinder, consumer-friendly side. In the past they’ve handed out promo cards for free apps at participating Starbucks locations, and have made available free songs from popular artists. Now they are now doing an “App of the Week,” the first time they’ve made paid apps available for free on the App Store (at least from their own side; developers have long discounted paid apps as a way to promote other properties in their catalogues).
The initial recipient of App of the Week is the popular Cut the Rope: Experiments, the sequel to the original game that pairs you with OmNom, the cute and hungry alien just looking for some food. The physics puzzler has kept millions of people entertained at the top of the App Store charts, and was recently ported to Android. Cut the Rope: Experiments normally runs for 99c.
If you’re into cute aliens, physics puzzlers or free stuff, check out Cut the Rope: Experiments on the iTunes App Store.
