The discount puts iPhone games at $1, and iPad apps at $2. PopCap are the creators of some of the most addictive games in recent memory, such as Bejeweled, Peggle, and Plants vs. Zombies.

The promotion ends at midnight PDT on Sunday, March 20. Games can be purchased through the Apple App store or directly from
