How to spend a $25 iTunes gift card for Oct. 31, 2014

October 31, 2014

You should download the following awesome iTunes titles on this Halloween Friday.

1989,” $12.99, Music album


Taylor Swift doesn’t like streaming music services such as Spotify and Pandora, telling The Wall Street Journal earlier this year that “music should not be free.”

Not surprisingly, her latest album, “1989,” is only available to purchase. And purchase it you should. The 13-song album is the perfect antidote for a world mostly in turmoil.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, $3.99, Universal game


First released for iOS in December, this popular game remains just $3.99 for a limited time. A recent update added optimization for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Stonehearst Asylum,” $6.99, Movie rental

Things aren’t quite as they appear in Brad Anderson’s “Stoneheart Asylum,” which has been released in theaters and on iTunes at the same time.

Featuring Jim Sturgess, Ben Kingsley, and Kate Beckinsale, this film is definitely an example of the inmates taking over the asylum … and then some.

Freebies of the Week


Ellen DeGeneres’ latest app, Ellentube, is touted as “the place for hilarious and family-friendly web videos from Ellen DeGeneres and her show and users from around the world.” We would agree.


It’s been nearly eight months since Flipboard purchased Zite. A recent Flipboard update finally adds many of the tools that made Zite so great to many of us.
