Today's deal is for iphoneographers. It's called the Essential iPhoneography Lens Kit that includes six lenses: 8x telephoto and 60x microscope lens with special case, the fisheye, macro/wide angle, and 2x telephoto lenses. It also comes with a back plate to mount the lenses on your iPhone, a tripod for your iPhone, and a case to hold it all. Cool, right? Through our deal, you can get it for US$69, making it even cooler. Click through to the deal, and there's a demonstration video and several example photos showing what the lenses produce.
I'll be honest, most speaker deals are deals I don't post. I'm picky when it comes to sound and don't want to lead anyone astray. I had a chance to test the Soundfreaq Sound Step Lightning, however, and it impressed me. The speaker set is small, but it's a 2.1 setup, meaning it has stereo left/right speakers as well as a separate, downward-facing subwoofer. The three speakers together make for a relatively well-rounded sound here. At $99, you're getting more than you bargain for with this, with sound equal to speakers twice its price (but not four times its price, to be fair!). Connections include line-in, Bluetooth, USB Audio and a Lightning-connector dock on the front. If you're looking for a speaker to add to your desk or bookshelf – even something to add to your Mac – check this one out.
We know that our readers love the training courses and tutorial deals our friends at StackSocial have put together, and today's a good one for the future, HTML 5 Crash Course for Beginners, and it's priced at only $29.

Normally $50, our friends at Stack Social and Parallels have worked with us to get the price down to just $15. Fifty and fifteen may share a lot of sounds a letters, but one of them leaves an extra thirty-five bucks in your pocket, and that's the deal we have running for the rest of the day today. Parallels Access is, hands-down, the best way we've found to access your Mac remotely (or locally) from your iPad. It's almost like magic the way it makes apps on your Mac feel like they were written for iPad. The normal price of $50 for one year is worth it, and at $15 it's a no-brainer. Buy. Now. Before it ends!

I have a deal on a bundle of training courses that will teach you how to make games for iOS (and Android, but it's mainly iOS), and it has proven to be very, very popular. It's called "The Learn To Code Game Developer Bundle," and includes an introduction to the Unity3D engine, how to use Stency to create 2D games, an HTML 5 game development course for beginners, how to make clones of Flappy Bird and Candy Crush (I recommend those for instructional purposes only—be creative!), Creating iOS Games For Beginners, and Learn Android App Development From Scratch. That's a lot of courses, and they retail for $989. You ca get it for $49 through our deal, which expires in 12 days, so giddy up!
We have a doozy of a deal for you today, a 50 percent discount on some of our favorite software: PDFPen (US$29.98) and PDFPen Pro ($49.98). Both apps are amazing, and they're made by Smile Software, a great company that has long supported many publications and podcasts, including The Mac Observer, Mac Geek Gab, and Apple Context Machine. So, it's a great deal for great software from a great company. If you need to edit or create PDFs, get 'em while you can, because the deal ends today (Monday).
We have a deal on a cool stand for iPads (and other tablets) designed around watching videos and movies. It's a stand with a built-in rechargeable battery that powers stereo speakers. The stand is adjustable, and the battery will power the speakers for up to 8 hours. Your iPad sees the speakers through Bluetooth, meaning no wires are necessary. Thanks to our friends at StackSocial, we can offer it to you US$45.99—it has an MSRP of $70.
We have a killer deal on a fun toy for you, Griffin's MOTO TC Rally Car, an RC car you control with your iPhone through a companion app. This USB-rechargeable car can be raced on pavement, and it has impact sensors that detect damage from other drivers and obstacles. You can add armor (that slows you down), and it's usable with iPhone 5/5c/5s, iPhone 4s, iPod touch (5th gen.), iPad 3, 4, and Air, and the iPad mini. It retails for US$99, but in this TMO deal, you can get it for $39.99, an offer that expires in 11 days.
