Flash Giveaway: 5 copies of PassMaker Pro, a $2.99 app!

If you have or are involved with a small business, non-profit or volunteer organization, or organize events on a frequent basis then you should definitely take a look at PassMaker Pro which effortlessly enables you to create passes for use with Passbook. This app was recently featured in TechCrunch and I have 5 copies which you can win!

Bronron Apps, the developer, kindly gave me codes for this app in December, then the holidays happened and before I know it I’m writing this quickly so that I can giveaway the codes before they expire. Sorry for the delay Bronron!

Let me quickly show you how easy it is to create passes using this app. You can create event invites, loyalty cards so customers can earn points, passes for travel, coupons for discounts and then there are generic passes which you can use for other things like memberships.

I created a fictional coupon for “Chris Raft’s Custom CRafts” business just to illustrate how simple it is to use. You can choose from nearly 50 icons and colours so it’s easy to create something unique looking.

Lots of options to customize and add info to the pass as you can see. There are three barcode options, I added a QR code to mine.

If you’ve got a variety of different products that are discounted at different rates, the backview of the pass lets you add lots of extra detailed information.

photo mosaic is a very specialized app that creates high quality image-from-images type mosaics. It doesn’t do anything else but this one thing it does better than any other application available. In addition to being blindingly fast, the app comes with special presets that help you create great photo mosaics even out of borderline images. It’s incredibly easy to use: drop in a picture, choose a tile source (e.g. an iPhoto event), press ‘Go’. A few seconds later you have a beautiful photo mosaic.

Giveaway FOR developers of iOS kids apps!

Some of you may know that I like to recreate scenes from famous movies using the Felt Board app from Software Smoothie. Have a go at guessing which movie scene this is:

Smart Apps for Kids: Review Giveaway

What is in that box?

In the film in question the box contained a necklace but in this case I have a gift far more valuable (if you are a developer of iOS kids apps that is).

To celebrate my Facebook page reaching 100 likes I am offering to pay for a developer to have one of their apps reviewed by Smart Apps For Kids, the #1 website for reviews of children’s educational apps. There are some rules:

  • This does NOT guarantee that your app will receive a positive review. It only guarantees that the review will be expedited. We pride ourselves on giving developers honest, detailed and constructive feedback. We do not write fluff reviews.
  • The winner gets a priority review with no video demo. The value of this is $125.
  • If the Conversation and Content Facebook page reaches 300 likes before the contest is over then instead the winner will receive a priority review with video demo. The value of this is $175.
  • If you have an app that has already been submitted for priority review then if you win the giveaway I will either refund your cost of purchase or pay for your next app’s priority review, whichever you choose.
  • Obviously, I won’t write the review.

Enjoy the contest and good luck! Enter the giveaway here: a Rafflecopter giveaway or on my Facebook page.
