Coupons for App World?

Are there any plans to allow vendors to create promotional coupon codes which allow users to download an app for free, or even a certain percentage off the regular price?  


This would be incredibly useful for marketting our apps online.  Currently MobiHand offers this, it would be great to see App World set this up as well.

Re: Coupons for App World?

Excellent, Alex!



Gifted subscriptions and even sending another user a gift in AppWorld is needed badly also.

Speaking as a user, if I want to send a friend or my wife a gifted app... say to BerryWeather, I can purchase and send her an email from AppWorld with the link to download and etc.

Re: Coupons for App World?

I can only agree and hope that it is implemented. Maybe a share on Facebook/twitter/google+ option when you install an app... For advertising/ promotion
