Giveaways ?

Anyone had any luck with giveaways?

Say you post on twitter or touch arcade first 10 people to tweet a screenshot of defeating the game boss get a $10 iTunes give card.

Or say first 10 people to leave a review with their twitter handle in review get a giftcard.

This legal and if so how's it work out?

Wont you need to buy itunes gift cards for different regions ? Not everyone playing your game will be from the US for example

I think I'd just state us only gift cards since that's what I have access to

I did this and regretted and ended up solving my problem with amazon gift cards which are easy to give to anyone. Itunes gift cards were a nightmare for me and I didn't realise I couldn't just buy them and then they only came in certain values.

Please follow me on twitter @JamesDestined I post lots of development from both my game creation and professional development.
