Dear iOS Game Developers,

We often get asked if developers can send us promo codes for giveaways, contests, and other similar things so I figured I'd put together a little guide on how you can get us codes for your game to give away. Our current preferred method of giving away codes is by doing various crazy things on Facebook, and in the future we're going to try to do more of that as we collect pools of promo codes to give away.

If you want to be a part of them, send us an email with the subject CODEZ to This is arguably the most important part because with the quantity of email we get, we live and die by email filters. Inside this email, provide us with:

  • The name of your game.
  • Any applicable links such as iTunes links, links to your web site, Twitter, or whatever else.
  • Expiration date of the codes, in case we don't use them all right away.
  • As many promo codes as you want to send us.
  • Whatever else seems relevant.

That's about it! Oh, and if you're not an iOS developer but decided to read this anyway, that's cool. Just make sure you like our Facebook page if you want to get in on this action.
