Heading into the 4th of July weekend, many developers are using the holiday as an excuse to cut prices on their Apps. Prominent developers such as EA (http://toucharcade.com/2011/07/01/ea-throwing-its-biggest-sale-yet-with-its-latest-for-independence-day/) and Gameloft (http://toucharcade.com/2011/06/30/gameloft-hacks-prices-in-4th-of-july-sale/) are amongst the participants. A running list of all App Store price drops can be seen here (http://appshopper.com/prices/).

Not really sure when the screenshot was from, but I just checked on my iPhone and Capo is still $19.99 (not $1.99).

There is a Jailbreak for the iPad 2 and MacRumors doesn't seem to want to cover the story.

Even on the iOS Page

Very strange,...

Its been out for 2 days now

Yeah, in beta. It hasn't even been officially released yet and doesn't work properly on iPad 2.

Garden Pro is shown as 99, slashed to free.
In the App Store (US), I see it selling for $2.99.
