How to redeem iTunes App store coupons

When distributing iKeyword coupons everyone was having issues with figuring out where to enter the coupon. Apple did a good job to make sure unsuspecting users will end up buying the app instead of redeeming the coupon because there is no way to use the coupon from the iTunes on the iPhone and even with iTune for Mac or Windows you couldn’t redeem the coupon from the App details page, clever of you Apple.

For everyone’s benefit;

  1. Power up your PC or Mac
  2. Open iTunes
  3. Goto iTunes store home (Click the home icon once you get to iTunes store)
  4. Click “Redeem” under “Quick links” (highlighted in the screenshot above)
  5. Key in the redeem code and click the Redeem button

Enjoy your app free app ๐Ÿ™‚

First iPhone app released

Available on the App Store iTunes Connect - iKeyword Last Wednesday first iPhone app was released under my account, iKeyword. iKeyword allows you to search for related keywords on your iPhone or iPod Touch. I use Google AdWords keyword suggestion API to discover/generate keywords. It was a fun project. I also need to give a shout out to Oliver Tani for giving me feedback on what Online Marketers really want.

To much to my surprise Apple’s approval process only took 7 days (5 working days), thank you Apple for speedy approval ๐Ÿ™‚ . See the screenshot of iTunes Connect bellow.
