For those of you who are not familiar with our Apps for Less posts, they are a great way for us to point out a few good iPhone (and iPod touch) applications available in the App Store that are currently on sale, or ones that have come down to a price permanently that we feel are worth mentioning to our readers.

First app worth a mention was a much anticipated game, EA's SimCity. [iTunes Link] Now for a limited time you can design, build and manage the city of your dreams for $2.99!

  • Pick a time by choosing from 3 time periods, 1900, 1950 or 2000, for your city setting - each with special buildings and technologies
  • Create chaos and allow UFOs & Toxic Clouds to invade your city or let mother nature have her way with natural disasters like Tornadoes & Earthquakes you get to repair and restore when its all done
  • No experience necessary with varying levels of difficulty, SimCity is fun for everybody, from novice city dwellers to the most seasoned urbanites!

This next game is a racer that Chad has nothing but great things to say about, Real Racer. [iTunes Link] The price of this most impressive racer has now dropped down to $6.99 from $9.99. Any racing fan should jump all over this one.

  • 36 cars in three classes, a dozen unique tracks, five game modes
  • In-car cockpit view or external camera
  • Massive career mode with 57 events to complete
  • Local multiplayer over WiFi

Last buy not least we have an oldie but a goodie, Super Monkey Ball is on sale for $3.99. [iTunes Link] That's down $6 from it's normal price! This game is simple, addictive, fun, frustrating, and well worth your $3.99.
