Yesterday Microsoft announced the launch of its Red Stripe Deals collection: a weekly sale on apps and games within the Windows Phone Store. A program designed to give Windows Phone apps more attention within the store.
After the success of some recent one-off sales within the Windows Phone Store, Microsoft has decided to make a regular feature of it every Thursday. “Each week the Store’s Red Strip Deals Collection will feature three popular apps and games—typically one Xbox game, one indie game, and one top-rated app—for at least 50% off the original price. ”
The collection name itself derives from the red stripe you’ll see around each discounted app’s icon in the phone Store. Apps currently include; Runtastic PRO, Assassin’s Creed: Altairs Chronicles HD, and King Oddball.
