    Just curious, do any developers out there plan on holding any Black Friday sales (day after Thanksgiving in US)? I would love the opportunity to snatch up a few pricey apps at a discount ;)

    Anyone think this is a good idea, or just silly?

    That's a really interesting thought developers should entertain. Or possibly consider that many people are going to receive iTunes gift cards for Xmas and having a sale might sway shoppers to their apps over music/movies.

    Black Friday sales have been going on for several months. Take advantage of them while they last.

    You mean sales have been going on for several months. Because we have not yet reached black Friday it's impossible to have had them already! :p

    Depends on what you call a Black Friday sale. Some sales on the weekends at some stores have been Black Friday-esque because they need the cash that bad.

    But no, they haven't been Black Friday sales.

    I hope some developers do this too. I still have a few bucks left from an itunes gift card that's burning a hole in my (virtual) pocket, but I haven't found anything lately that's really caught my interest for its price.

    Automated Ad

    I think they should develop a way when you walk in a store (Best Buy, Target, etc) the ads would comeup on your iphone as a pdf...
