Palm is now running a 50% off sale for all apps on the Palm Catalog. So, now’s the time to get your apps at half-price until July 9th. The obvious reason, is that Palm is encouraging users to buy apps for their Palm devices which might have larger implications. For example, this might indicate if users feel that the price for these apps are too high and that is why they haven’t purchased them. The sale also helps to advertise the fact that the Palm devices do indeed have numerous apps available.
Luckily, Palm is subsidizing this sale for developers, so they are paying developers the 50% difference. Thus, this sale is completely promoted by Palm with no sacrifice in revenue for the developers. Very nice, Palm.
