Probably with services/referral link systems like link synergy/LinkShare.

I'm not familiar with getjar but Tapjoy is a PPI (pay per install) service
for advertising intead of paying by the click or impressions
you pay per guarantied install
they confirm this by integrating their SDK (very simple)
when ever a user downloads and runs ur app it counts as an install
ive used tapjoy
its been the best most efficient form of advertising ive come across
if u have enough money they say u can buy ur way into the top 25
other similar services r ,moduad and flurry's app circle
Tapjoy is about $0.50 an install
moduad is the cheapest at $0.25 an install

I UM cannot see the point of a one off pay install as Tapjoy will then carry on to make continous money I suspect,

But we poor things wil probably not

I thought apple has essentially nixed TapJoy with new policy. is it still possible to promote an app by paying tapjoy? if it is, do you risk getting marked as a bad apple by...apple?

That's a misconception
Paid installs r still allowed
Only incentive installs where disallowed
Eg give a player in game currency to download this free app
So as long as ur not giving the player any incentive to download an app. U can buy as many downloads as u want.
U can use Tapjoy or any other PPI service as much as u want and u won't be on apple's bad side

Ah ok, interesting. I guess it's a question then of if these services can still push a reasonable number of paid downloads without offering anything else back to their users.
