Start your day off free with our Download Discounts list. First, read up on and download Chop Chop Runner, an addictive endless running title with a ninja twist, and follow that up with the more involved Garage Inc. — a time management game set during Prohibition. You can also get the skinny on a slightly more useful app called Qik Video Connect PLUS, which lets you send video messages and make video calls to other iPhone users and even Android phone owners, using both Wi-Fi and 3G data connections.

Chop Chop Runner (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)

Chop Chop Runner is a game in the running genre that takes on a ninja twist. It incorporates the cartoon graphics of many of the other Chop Chop game titles, while also working in other gameplay elements, like samurai you have to defeat using your ninja skills — all while trying too go as far as possible to rack up a high score, without falling to your death or running into anything.

You’ll work to get as far as you can when you download Chop Chop Runner, with high scores determined by how long you can survive. The game features leaderboards from both OpenFeint and Game Center and includes 12 achievements to earn and unlock. Chop Chop Runner also has a simple, one-button control scheme that’s dependent on quick reflexes to stay alive.

Garage Inc. (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)

Prohibition, mobsters, cars and time management — that’s Garage Inc. distilled to its core elements. The primary gameplay element is a time management game in which you need to run your mechanic business as efficiently as possible, but unfortunately, you have to make payments to the mafia or risk losing everything.

Featuring a 1920s mob story and comic-like art style, Garage Inc. has been pretty well received by critics and players alike, so snag it while it’s free. The low price is only likely to last a day.

Qik Video Connect PLUS (iPhone, iPad) Free (was $0.99)

From the makers of Skype comes Qik Video Connect, an app that allows you to video chat with other users, as well as send video messages and share videos. You can make your video calls over Wi-Fi or with a 3G data connection, and make video calls between iPhones and Android devices.
