Google Play Store app promotions are pretty easy to predict, but it’s more complicated with those on the Apple Apps Store, since Apple doesn’t specify just how long the discount will remain valid.
Here’s a tip: If you find an interesting app but can’t really use it right now? Install the app anyway, then delete it from your device. That way, the app will become part of your app library, and you can install it again for free when you need it. This is a good way not to miss out on a short-lived promo.
