Promo Codes are a great way for developers or HP to give out free copies of apps, and who doesn't love free apps, right?! However, unless you were given a direct link to access the app with the promo code, you normally need to open up the App Catalog, search for the app, tap to purchase it, and then tap "Use Promo Code" before typing or pasting it in. One quick shortcut that you can use is to paste in http://developer.palm.com/appredirect/?promocode=[add your promo code] into Just Type or the browser with your specific promo code to jump right to the app in the catalog with the Promo Code prefilled. Of course, this still requires you to remember that link and then add in your code. An app like Clipboard for webOS can simply this task by keeping of copy of the base URL, but there is an even easier option: Add Promo Code search to Just Type.

Using our previous tip on Adding any website to a Just Type Search you can actually create a Just Type search option where you only need to paste in the Promo Code to Just Type, tape "Promo Code Search" and be taken directly to that app in the catalog with the code prefilled in. Note that you may still need to enter your Profile Password and will then need to tap "Use Promo Code" instead of "Purchase".

Follow the steps at Adding any website to a Just Type Search, using:

Then, be sure to update your Just Type preferences for either webOS 2.x (for phones) or webOS 3.x (for TouchPad)
