HP kicks out free app six-pack
Promo codes are fun and wonderful things. There’s a reason we give away a whole slew of them every week (this week: 20 copies of NDrive GPS navigation!). After practically giving away their remaining stock of TouchPads, HP’s now in the business of giving away apps. HP’s put up a new “six pack” of app promo codes on the official HP Palm Blog, and they’re up for the taking.
The apps? Glimpse [review] ($5.00, by Inglorious Apps), Kung Fu Panda 2 Storybook ($2.99, by zuuka), Big Boss ($1.99, by Fair Play Labs), Sparkle HD ($4.99, by 10tons Ltd), Camera for TouchPad [review] ($0.99, by Keen Studios) and Audubon Birds ($14.99, by Green Mountain Digital).
Update: We got in contact with HP about this promotion to get some more details. First and foremost, even though the developers behind these apps weren't involved in the selection of their app for app pack status, HP is still going to pay them their 70% cut as if they'd actually sold an app. Additionally, HP has the ability internally to generate promo codes of unlimited value, so even though the fine print says "as long as inventories last", you can rest assured they're not going to run out. Lastly, we've confirmed that HP intends to run these giveaways on a weekly basis, so you can be sure there will be plenty more apps to fill up your webOS device in the weeks to come.
