Make like Van Halen and jump to download these apps

This week’s Windows Phone store Red Stripe Deals will save you at least 50 percent off the original price of these apps and games.

Don’t let Van Halen have all the fun – jump to download Synthpling! ($1.49, regularly $2.99), which combines the abilities of a synthesizer with the fun of a sampler for making unique music. There’s no driver’s license necessary for Drift Mania Championship 2 ($.99, regularly $1.99), an addictive drift experience, with customizable cars and next-generation graphics that put you right on the race track. In Puzzle Quest 2, from Xbox ($2.99, regularly $6.99), match the colors of sparkling jewels, cast spells, and do a bit of role-playing to advance.

Visit the Windows Phone store each Thursday to see that week’s trio of Red Stripe Deals.
