HP TouchPad discounts continue: HP gives away 6 paid apps for free
HP’s firesale of the HP TouchPad cleared up the company’s tablet inventory but with a $99 price tag for the 16 gig model, HP can’t even pay off its expenses. Well, that doesn’t stop it from discounting a bundle of apps now, usually costing $15 to free to sweeten the TouchPad deal.

"If you have an HP TouchPad...We've selected six apps that normally sell for as much as $14.99 and we're making them available at no cost to HP webOS customers for a limited time," HP said on its Palm blog. To download the applications for free you need to enter the promo code (in brackets below) and have credit card purchases enabled as you’ll receive a receipt for the free apps. The applications include:

  • Glimpse by Inglorious Apps (promo code: injoj55410gavxv), which allows for better multitasking with its split-screen UI. 

  • Camera for TouchPad by Keen Studio (eotss76676jjzqr), which is basically the only way to access the camera on the TouchPad if you don’t need it for Skype calls. 

  • Audubon Birds by Green Mountain Digital (jjiox66488ddnik), which is a visual and aural guide to North American birds. 

  • Big Boss by Fair Play Labs (vfimk09918lngoz), which is a heroes and wizards game.

  • Sparkle HD by 10tons Ltd. (pweuq32135vrbhx), which is a version of the desktop game Sparkle.Save Crowberry Woods in this TouchPad version of the popular desktop game.

HP promised it will bring another half dozen apps for free in September, so you definitely have all the reasons in the world to try and catch those hard to get $99/$149 TouchPads while/if they are still out there.

Same here, don't think 1 day was fair enough to those whom were able to get one. They should have also informed buyers via e-mail.

Hey Sam, after you hit "Download for $$" on an app, you should get the "Use promo code" option, so just tap that instead of purchasing the application. Sadly, it seems that only the KungFu panda app hasn't yet reached its limit.
