With both Christmas and Hanukkah set to begin within the next 48 hours, there’s a decent chance that you’re spending time with friends and family. But no matter how much you love your family, you can only spend so much time cooped up with them before you start to lose your mind. That’s when you start searching for distractions, which is exactly what Apple has provided with a huge sale on the App Store.

For a limited time, 24 apps and games are available for $0.99 on the App Store. Some of these apps are going on sale for the first time while others have never been this cheap. Even better, there are a number of quality apps on this list, including Octodad, Broken Age and the incredibly popular Alto’s Adventure.



Apple didn’t give any details about the length of the sale, but if you see anything on the list that you want, it’s best to download it now before the promotion ends. That said, the App Store actually shuts down and stops accepting admissions from developers on December 23rd through the 27th, so there’s a decent chance you have until next Tuesday to buy the apps for the discounted price.
