Why Do We Give Out Promo Codes?
We issue these codes in an effort to obtain people's feedback on the work we have done.
Apart from really enjoying the writing and illustrating process, we need to develop the stories as a source of income. Therefore, we want to spread the word so people can see and buy.
The only way we can start this process is to show people our work. Because we are selling apps which are controlled by Apple, they are hidden away in the vast world of iTunes and we can't just "give" an interested person a copy. Promo (promotional) codes serve the purpose of allowing a reviewer access to the product.
Promo Codes Have A Limited Life Span
We ask that those who do take a code, redeem them quickly. The codes expire 30 days after they issued, as set by iTunes.
How To Redeem Promo Codes To Review Apps.
If you're not sure how to redeem promo codes, it can be a bit confusing. We're here to help.
Follow these few steps, and you'll be reading our stories before you know it. If you have a problem, contact us and we'll do our best to help.
On Your iPad
1. Open the APP Store app.
2. Select Featured from the bottom panel, then...
3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find Redeem.
4. Click on Redeem and then enter your code - you do not need to select a particular app as the code is specific to the promo-app. Once the code has been accepted, the app will start to download automatically.
On Your PC/Mac
1. Open iTunes.
2. Click on the home icon on the top bar, or click on iTunes Store.
3. From the Quick Links menu (on the top right hand side of your screen), click Redeem.
4. Enter your promo code. Note: you can only enter one code at a time.
Once the code has been accepted, the app will start to download automatically.
Note: the next time you synch with iTunes, the app will be transferred to your iPhone or iPad.
Writing Reviews of Apps
Unfortunately, iTunes will not allow you to leave a comment about an app unless you have actually purchased the app. Using a Promo Code doesn't count as a purchase.
If you'd like to write a review or give a comment, please email us directly so that we can place your feedback on our website in our review section for other people to read.
We always appreciate honest feedback and would love to hear from you.
We hope you find this information helpful.
