Dear MacRumors,

If I may, PDFZone ('https://apps.apple.com/us/app/pdfzone/id1215383084?mt=12') is also at -70% (8,99 $ instead of 31,99$) for the Black Friday & Cyber Monday.

Hope this will satisfy your readers :).

On Catalina, you need to use the Retroactive app ('https://github.com/cormiertyshawn895/Retroactive') to install iTunes 12.6.

Ironically, for those that don't currently have an iPad, I think it might be easier to buy the app on a Windows computer these days than on a Mac.

If someone has a better way, I'd love to hear it.


We are growing further and further apart from the days of “it just works” and “oh, they’ve thought of that”.

Apple’s own ecosystem is becoming restrictive of itself within the ecosystem. It’s...sad.

I'm not sure if Apple did this intentionally or it's an oversight from a different change.

I can believe that it's intentionally difficult to "buy" iPad-only apps on any other device. It can result in a poor user experience for those that don't understand what they are doing, and it makes it more difficult for savvy users to take advantage of sales such as these - makes it more difficult to get good apps when the price is temporarily free and warehouse them for when/if a compatible device is purchased.

On the flip side, it could just be an oversight left over from when they revamped the app store. To be fair, a similar problem used to exist on Xbox where you had to physically sign-in on an Xbox to take advantage of the free-with-gold deals. It was years before they made it possible to get those deals through the webstore.
