Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals live!

I couldn’t let Black Friday pass without doing at least something for ya’ll — so here’s a list of some great deals you should checking out. Unlike in years past where I spent 20+ hours looking through thousands of deals to make a comprehensive list, I’ve just listed some here that have come my way on great apps. Check out the Black Friday deals!

Hang onto your hats…

I announced last month that MDM Deals was going MIA during October as I thought through what the future looks like as the app industry shifts. I’ve given it a bunch of thought this last month and concluded that MDM Deals can’t return the way it was structured before…but I think it can return in an even better way to help you discover great apps and improve your life.

I’m still teasing out the idea, but I would LOVE to talk with you to test it out–call it an alpha test. Anyone adventurous enough to give it a shot and help shape the future of what MDM Deals becomes? Get in touch.

P.S. Patreons, note that I’ve permanently suspended my Patreon campaign, so you won’t get charge whether or not you cancel your pledge. Thanks for your loyalty!

Deals for Sept 1

So despite trying for several hours today, I can’t get my previous system to work again. There’s some bug in Shortcuts that is preventing posting items one by one as I did before, so I retooled so I can do them manually, at least for the time being. I was only able to get books switched over but I’ll get to apps tomorrow.

Announcement: Technical difficulties (waterlogged phone)

So…one of the things we enjoyed on our vacation was a waterpark. One of the things my wife didn’t enjoy was when our son splashed her on a raft. She screamed. The dashing white knight I am, I jumped out of my raft and ran to her when I heard her scream. My phone was in my pocket and despite Apple claiming it waterproof for exactly these kinds of “falls into the pool”, it died. I tried the bag of rice, no such luck, so I’m phone less at present.

Suffice it to say, no deals today. I’m trying to migrate things over to my iPad, but found out today that it won’t work to run the deals. I’ll try to troubleshoot it tomorrow and be back as soon as I can, but until further notice, deals won’t be happening.

Should I start a GoFundMe for a new phone?

Announcement: MDM Deals 2021.4: Kindle and Audible Deals!

MDM Deals now curates Kindle deals

Hey all,

It’s been a few months without an update to MDM Deals–well, there’s been changes, but I am now able to officially announce that MDM Deals is now supporting curation of deals on Kindle and Audible books! You’ve likely seen these already in the feed as I worked out the kinks, but I was able to put the finishing touches on them today!

For now, I am only curating deals on Amazon books (Kindle & Audible) if they are *also* available on Apple Books. I’m working on expanding beyond that to include deals son Amazon Books that are not on Apple’s store, but there’s some technical and, bizarrely, legal limits to what I can do and so we’ll start here for now.

There’s nothing you need to do to start saving on Kindle and Audible books–except click on the buttons to go to Amazon rather than Apple Books. If you want to follow some dedicated RSS feeds, those have been updated as well:

Deals filtered by type:

  • Ebooks – Apple Book and Kindle ebook deals
  • Audiobooks – Apple Audiobook and Audible deals

Deals filtered by store & type

All for now! As always, if you appreciate what I do, please support my work whether one time (Buy Me a Coffee) or ongoing with perks (Patreon) Every dollar helps me keep doing what I’m doing.
