How to get updates of Apps going Free/On Sale for iOS and Android

Both Apple’s App Store and Android’s Play Store has loads of free Apps for your use. But there are some really handy Apps and games on these stores that are available for a Price. Often many top Apps go on sale/go free in these stores and the news never gets to you. Here is a simple method to setup notifications or emails whenever an App goes on sale or gets discounted.

To perform this function, I have used IFTTT (If this then that) App. Available for Free on both iOS and Android, it uses an event as a trigger to perform a task for you. For example, if you post a photo on Instagram, you can set to to save the photo in Dropbox automatically.

Step-by-Step Guide

1. Download IFTTT (If this then that) for Google Play Store / Apple App Store.

2. Once Installed, launch the App and tap the on the Bowl icon on the right top corner.


3. A slide menu will appear. Tap the + sign on the top right corner. A Create Recipe menu will appear.

The process is similar Play Store Notifications. You can find the options for Play Store updates in the AppZapp list of triggers.

You can set up Email notifications to your email instead of Android Notifications. When you select the task you want to perform, instead for Android Notifications, select Email Digest. You can even set the time you get the email updates. We suggest Email Digest option because Android Notifications flood your device with updates.
