Who likes to buy apps? The answer is no one, of course. Unfortunately, as in life, the best apps and games don't come free. That's why it makes sense to wait until those apps go on sale before handing over your hard-earned cash. And what better day to find discounts in the iOS App Store than Cyber Monday?
Below, we've rounded up the best Cyber Monday deals on games and apps for your iPhone in the iOS App Store. Whether you're looking for a new adventure to suck you in or you need some help planning your work week, there's an app or game on this list for you. Hurry, though, as there's no telling when some of these deals will disappear.

The iOS App Store does not specifically list any apps as being on sale for "Cyber Monday." Rather, you'll find some organized discounts in a section labeled "Limited-Time Prices." While we can't know for sure if this special is a Cyber Monday sale instigated by Apple, it seems safe to assume it has something to do with it. Either way, these are games that Apple has featured at a discount.
