Apple's "App of the week" thread

Hey,

Starting from today, I will be posting the latest Apple free app promotion. Each promotion goes live every Thursday, and a selected app goes free for the week.

The promotion will be listed/updated on this thread each week. Keep an eye out on this thread.

The current promotion : FLICK KICK FOOTBALL

How to do that? Is it just find the link for the website and then post that address?

Find the link for Apple iTunes app, then surround it with [ appinfo ] and [ /appinfo ] without the spaces. If you quote my post, above, you'll see how to do it. Use [ appinfo=all ] for the first embedded appinfo reference, if you want to see even more information about the app, otherwise use the shortened basic version.

Thank you, since I post alot of free apps, this is very useful, couldn't find a help file on the board how to do it, so now I can post my own links which is helpful...

Also, this thread will be cool to keep up with their promotions. Kinda cool that it is happening cause some very cool apps that normally wouldn't be free are now turning free. And they get tons of free publicity too.

Edit: just tried to make a link for one of my posts, can't get to the itunes store on my ipad, so is above info pertain only to pc and macs? Is there anyway to link easily from my ipad?

What I do is search for the app (by name) using Google in Safari, then cut and paste the link from there (press and hold link and wait for cut/copy pop-up).

Here's a link to a list of supported special codes on Touch Arcade, that I'm sure you'll find useful too.

Thank you for being so kind. Couldn't find this before, but I knew it had to be around somewhere. Thanks!

I'm sort of dissapointed by this one, I guess I wanted a game, not a picture editor.
