Well, I wouldn't go that far
I'll wait for the stickers to go on sale for 99cents/free.
may i have a promo code please?
Do you have to be a (user) reviewer to be eligible for promo codes? Or can anybody get them if the dev offers 'em?
I'm pretty sure it's up to the developers.
Okay. Well, it never hurts to try.
well, it really depends. some devs like to have giveaways on toucharcade wehre everyone (including lurkers) can get them, some do giveaways where only users can get them PM giveaways for example. others only give promo codes to reviewers on release and let the rest of the codes expire.
i've heard some devs give codes in exchange itunes reviews though.
I wondered about this as I got a pm asking for a promo code in exchange for a good review on the appstore and Toucharcade forums.
I pointed out we are not handing out any promo codes at the moment and then stated that any reviews we get we want them to be truthful as thats the only way we can find out where we are going right or wrong with our apps. Otherwise its a pointless exercise and we never learn anything.
Maybe we are strange but money and reviews are secondary to us. We want to make the best games we can and from feedback etc as that's how we will improve.
I like that idea, unique, good job!
Well, the purpose of devs giving out promo codes is for you to write reviews for them, but if you don't want to, then that's your choice. You don't necessarily have to, as there wasn't an official 'contract' or 'agreement', but it would be pretty rude for you to not write a review for them.
What if you have a blog where you review iOS games, wouldn't that make you legit.
Are you kidding? You quoted a two year old post?
Lol, I almost commented on that earlier. Weird.....or just didn't realize how old that post was.
I'm a new user to this forum. I have been in many forums such as Halo Reach forums, OpenFeint, Bulletstorm forums and more. Am I under that category? (been a member of OF for 3 years and and bungie 2 years)
Anyway, a little harsh though. If they constantly beg, than definitely. but once shouldn't be permanent..
+1 Always give yourself one chance, eh?
