Normally on MacNN, we point our readers at some of the giveaways happening over at MacNN Deals. Since this is the last giveaway post to grace the front page of this site, we thought that it would be best to highlight all the ongoing giveaways at the store rather than just one, giving you a final chance to know about everything that is up for grabs and to enter if you haven't already, including one competition we haven't had time to promote.
Everyone likes getting something for nothing, especially when there's no or relatively few catches. Freebie Friday is the post where the MacNN staff find stuff that you can get, and possibly make use of this weekend, without spending a single cent. For the last time before the site closes, the freebies on offer today include coding courses, tuition to make your photographs better, and our usual collection of free iOS apps.
If you look through the Steam store, you'll find that there's quite a few games you can play on a Mac, though sometimes it could be worth looking in other directions for entertainment, such as consoles. If you've been interested in getting hold of one of the current-generation consoles, but was put off by the cost, you may want to take part in one of the last MacNN Deals giveaways, where one lucky winner will receive a special edition PlayStation 4 with Uncharted 4.
Everyone likes getting something for nothing, especially when there's no or relatively few catches. Freebie Friday is the post where the MacNN staff find stuff that you can get, and possibly make use of this weekend, without spending a single cent. The freebies this time include lessons on how to improve the food you cook, a way to keep track of your workouts, and an extremely powerful OCR app.
An accessory for the upcoming Pokémon game for mobile devices is now available to pre-order. The Pokémon Go Plus, an accessory that was revealed during E3 to be arriving sometime after the iOS and Android game's release date, has surfaced on Amazon for players to acquire before it ships, though while it keeps the $35 price tag declared by Nintendo earlier this week, it is currently listed with a release date of December 31, instead of an expected launch in the months following July.
While you can easily play games on a Mac, it's worth exploring other areas for gaming purposes as well, and that effectively means consoles. If you've been interested in getting hold of one of the current-generation consoles, but was put off by the cost, you may want to take part in the latest MacNN Deals giveaway, with one lucky winner getting hold of a special edition PlayStation 4 with Uncharted 4.
Welcome to the Game Replay, usually the thrice-weekly look back at the wider world of gaming by the staff of MacNN. Since E3 is taking place this week, there more Game Replay posts than usual, as the big names in the games industry make major announcements on upcoming releases. Today's post deals with news from Nintendo, as well as a new game from Volition and an expansion for Rock Band 4
Every so often, people browse the Internet and the Mac App Store to try and find useful things to add to their app arsenal, but sometimes it's hard to find discounted apps that you really want to get. For App Deals for OS X, the MacNN staff has compiled a list of apps for your Mac that are either a great bargain, or even free for a short while.
The App Store is a constantly-changing place, with new apps joining the catalog, while others adjust their prices to encourage some new sales. App Deals for iOS aims to point you in the direction of apps for your iPhone or iPad that have been reduced in price, making them an essential purchase, or in some cases, even free.
Welcome to Daily Deals, the post where the writing team of MacNN scours online retailers to find discounts, promotions, bargains, and offers for our readers to take advantage of. Yesterday's list has been pruned of old deals, while the additions for today include a 38mm Apple Watch for $359, the Samsung T3 portable 250GB SSD for $80, and the House of Marley Jammin Liberate Saddle on-ear headphones for $25.
