app Developers and Publishers looking for exposure can now do
so with a new website that allows them to giveaway their iPhone/iPod
Touch apps by way of a promotional giveaway. App Giveaway (www.appgiveaway.com),
allows Publishers and Developers to feature their apps on the
website in return for promo codes which they receive from the
Apple Store - and maximise potential revenue. The website has
been created as a way of helping both mobile Developers/Publishers
promote their apps whilst at the same time giving something back
to the users of the iPhone/iPod Touch devices.
went live this week and does exactly what it says on the tin -
it features iPhone and iPod Touch apps that are ready to be distributed
to the online community. What makes the site unique is that it’s
free for all to participate and all we ask for in return are promo
codes which we can distribute to our online users, thereby maximising
exposure and potential revenue in the future from direct links
Application Developers and Publishers that are already receiving
exposure on the App Giveaway website include Game Systems with
their iPhone application “T.A.N.K. Arena Battle” and
an app called “Earth Quake Watch” developed by an

idea developed after Apple agreed to provide developers 50 promo
codes each: “I heard Apple was providing Developers upto

can giveaway their promo codes whilst promoting their app much
more effectively?’ Then I thought I might as well include
categories, too, as this will give visitors a much more convenient
way of looking for apps.”Al says.
Sutty of G.A.M.E.S. says "I am very excited to work with
AppGiveaway to help me promote my game. After talking to other
iPhone developers, it’s very clear, that without the right
exposure, the odds of getting noticed among the other 40,000+
iPhone applications are pretty slim. It is hard enough to get
a review noticed, and that's assuming you can get the review
written in the first place. The giveaway is such an easy way for
a developer to get noticed".
site also maximizes exposure by serving as a useful app directory,
because all iPhone and iPod Touch apps are categorized in a sidebar.
Categories include Books, Business, Entertainment, Finance, Games,
and many more.
has big plans for the site: “I want the www.appgiveaway.com
website to be the biggest promoter of iPhone and iPod Touch applications.
I also want to provide a service for people to feature and visit
useful apps. I believe the app giveaway website will have a profound
effect on the way we find, download and forward useful apps in
the future. We also have plans to launch an iPhone app version
of the app giveaway website very soon”
Giveaway also features articles. Al says: “I’m a big
fan of writing, so I would like to write a few words related to
mobile applications on
