HP giving away free apps with its 99 dollar TouchPad
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
Hewlett Packard (HP) is offering buyer of its $99 TouchPad Tablet the opportunity to get 6 free apps which vary in price for $0.99 to $14.99. The news comes after HP “dumped” all their old stock when they withdrew from the Tablet market and reduced prices by nearly 75% in order to clear stock. Some people have been unhappy about HP discontinuing so soon and as a result the free apps are a bit of an attempt to sweeten up the new owners who are worried a discontinued product will mean less customer support. Here is a list of the free apps:
- Glimpse (Inglorious Apps, $5, injoj55410gavxv): Amp up your TouchPad multitasking to 11 using this customizable and addictive split-screen interface.
- Kung Fu Panda 2 Storybook (zuuka, $2.99, eotss76676jjzqr): Enjoy images and voices from Kung Fu Panda 2 right on your TouchPad.
- Big Boss (Fair Play Labs, $1.99, vfimk09918lngoz): Design your
Boss a gigantic monster and attempt to defeat the brave heroes and powerful wizards of WackyLands.
- Sparkle HD (10tons Ltd., $4.99, pweuq32135vrbhx): Save Crowberry Woods in this TouchPad version of the popular desktop game.
- Camera for TouchPad (Keen Studios, $0.99, rijon62171nhvtu): Start snapping away, with options for managing your photos and using them with other TouchPad apps.
- Audubon Birds (Green Mountain Digital, $14.99, jjiox66488ddnik): This searchable digital field guide to North American birds offers stunning photography and thrilling (trilling?) bird songs.
Note if you want to get these free apps you must be an existing HP TouchPad owner with a current HP profile or account. To order the apps you must do so in the HP App Catalogue area of your account, the offer lasts until the end of August (expires August 31 at 11:59 p.m.).
