Hi, long time lurker/reader (VERY long time lurker) who just decided to sign up now.

This straight-up feels like an ad. Which I suppose makes sense, considering the site, but it's not really even written like the one from last year, which ACTUALLY sounds like they used the applications: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/black-friday-app-deals-include-pixelmator-linky-lost-within-and-more.1940542/

It's so sterile and doesn't really give me any confidence that any of these might ACTUALLY be good. It's just a copy-paste depressing mashup.

I highly recommend Deliveries and Pixelmator - Deliveries answers the "is it here yet? how about now? or now?" questions really well (and syncs nicely between iOS and macOS), and Pixelmator is one of my favorite image editors, its killer feature is a repair tool that's both highly effective and quite usable on iOS (easily vanquish those specks of dust that you only noticed after taking the picture). I'd also recommend PDF Expert (PDF viewing and annotating on iOS with sync via Dropbox and others), the killer feature for me being full-text indexing across all the PDFs you feed it; and Fantastical, my favorite calendar for macOS and iOS, the built-in calendar has caught up somewhat but I still prefer Fantastical's month-calendar-plus-upcoming-list display, to see what is coming up.

Alto is such a wonderful game. I usually don’t keep games for very long on my iPhone, but this one has been there for a year now and I enjoy playing it from time to time.

For some reason, I have all Infinite Blade games, yet I don’t think I ever had to pay for them…
