Asphalt 8 is having a 40% off sale on all its U.S. cars in Class D and Class A, along with three special cup races: the Captain's Cup (win an in-game 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8), the General's Cup (win 1 million credits), and the Memorial Day Cup (win the car and up to 1 million credits). World at Arms, meanwhile, is offering the chance to win several different holiday-themed items (Lexington Minuteman, Paul Revere Statue, Washington Monument) during Operation Memorial Day. Finally, Despicable Me: Minion Rush's Memorial Day event gives players the chance to win a special Fireman costume.

All of these events are live now, and are only available for the next three days. Better act fast!

This week at 148Apps.com, we celebrated the coming Memorial Day holiday with a closer look and an ever-growing list of apps on sale. Site editor Rob LeFebvre writes, "So, it’s that time of year again! BBQs, lawn chairs, beer, and the ability to finally wear shorts with sandals without fear of frostbite. Tan those legs and check out all the huge sales that are going on across the App Store below. We’ll try and keep it updated as we go this weekend, so be sure to let us know of any good sales on iOS apps..."

At GiggleApps, writer Amy Solomon reviewed The First Million-Teach Your Child to Read. Solomon says, "The First Million is a lovely universal “mix and match” book application that adults and children will find interesting as well as intuitive as here, as the pages of this book are split into three sections – each being able to be flipped back and forth to create new and intriguing illustrations and word combinations. Unlike other “mix and match” books where one can look for the corresponding thirds of the same image to make a match, this app is completely open-ended with no right or wrong matches to be made, giving children free range to produce any and all combinations they may fancy."
