Daily Deals: iPhone ‘Scary Prank’, iPad Mini Stand, Cyclops iPhone 4 Case




We start off with two frightfully good deals for your iPhone. First is the latest crop of free iPhone applications, including “A Scary Prank.” Next is the Cyclops Case for your iPhone 4. A bit more on the ‘treat’ side is a stylish mini stand for your iPad that’s just $2.

Along the way, we’ll also check out some cases for your iPod touch, as well as some refurbished second-generation iPods, and a 27-inch LED Cinema Display bundled with Apple’s Magic Trackpad. As usual, details on these and many other bargains can be found at CoM’s “Daily Deals” page right after the jump.
