Hey guys,

BurnBall v2.0 has just been released (free update). It's got online high scores and a few other improvements that I know people have been waiting for.

Cheers,

Tim.

Give away to random people? (ME)

A GREAT idea for getting the word out about an app is a trivia contest, I organized one for the dev of Space Ninja and it got 7k views before it was closed. Something like that is really effective.

Interesting looking game. What does one have to do to earn a promo code?

Come on guys, Clearly states in the rules you cant just go around making new accounts and begging for Promo Codes...if anything mask your attempt to get a promo code by also offering the dev useful advise

That's an interesting idea. Tell me more about it. How did it work?

If anyone else has ideas on how to give out some of these promo codes, with the main goal being to get word-of-mouth going, post your ideas in here. I'll run with the top idea or two that have the most promise.

Cheers,

Tim.

Trivia contests always get a lot of hits. Also, I haven't really seen anyone do it here yet, but an "internet scavenger hunt" would be a really cool idea. Like, you give us hints to a site and a clue for a quote from that site, and we have to send you the exact line from that site.

I kind of like the "email a friend with a link to the game" unfortunately i only know one person with an ipod touch like me but we do need games for our long car ride ths weekend

yeah trivia makes you actually try for it instead of people who just grab them off a big posted list
