What is a Red Stripe deal? Every week in Windows Phone Store a select group of paid apps and games are marked way down from the regular price, and offered at a discount. There are new selections every week. Now, we have the inside track on which apps will be on sale, and we will bring you the list as soon as we get our hands on it. It’s like getting the inside scoop before everyone else.

This week, there’s one handy utility, and two great games. Read on to learn more about each one, and then head over to the Windows Phone Store to pick up a bargain or two. But remember, each deal is only available for one week – you snooze, you lose.

AppoinTile, which is a tile-based app that replaces the calendar that comes pre-installed on your Lumia. This new and improved version packs a lot of information into that little rectangle. You can select the number of upcoming appoints to view, over a specific date range, and then further customize the view based on a wide variety of optional settings. You can also set up a secondary tile, if needed, and use the app as a part of your lockscreen, too. AppoinTile is normally priced at $1.99, and right now is Red Striped to $0.99.


Flux Family Secrets: The Ripple Effect (Full) is also regularly priced at $1.99, and is half price at $0.99 for the next week. This game is from the developers at Big Fish Games, who are known for their highly immersive, engaging games, and “Flux Family” does not disappoint. You will find a hidden-object game with a very intricate storyline that requires all of your deductive skills to solve the mystery.


Finally, we have Sonic 4 Episode 1, which normally costs $4.99, but you can get all the fast-paced, frenetic hedgehog action you can handle for only $1.99 right now. A decent discount indeed, and the gameplay is spectacular and very smooth. Everything you would expect in a Sonic game with loops and jumps and obstacles galore.


Both of the games are large files to download, so you will need Wi-Fi access to get them.

Additionally, all of the apps and games offered in this week’s Red Stripe deal have free trial versions, but with the discounts being offered, you might as well get yourself a little treat and download them now.
