The worst thing about limited time offers is that, well, they are limited time. Microsoft has a habit of creating special categories on special occasions in the Windows Store.
Back in December, they created a special apps category that gave away six different apps for free until January 31, 2013. Today, however, the Windows Store team made some changes to the section.
Two of the most popular gaming apps “Where’s My Water?” and “Where’s My Perry?” are no longer being offered for free, instead come with a price tag of $1.49. However, another four apps are still available for download.
The four available apps are from the sports, travel and news & weather categories, and include titles like The ESPN App, Expedia, The New York Times and Zinio — all great choices and definitely worth a download.
As the official description in the Windows Store reads:
“Check out these offers and save some money. You’ll find great apps, subscriptions, and premium services for a reduced price or, in some cases, for free.”
If you are on Windows 8 and yet to download these you may want to take a look right away, as it seems Microsoft will refresh this category at the end of the month.
And special offers like these will seem to pop up at regular intervals, and we will keep you in the loop when they do.
