Those feelings haven’t left.

Thanks to this week’s sponsor. Tokens for Mac is probably the easiest way for developers to get promo codes from iTunes and share them.

The first step to getting your app noticed is inviting bloggers to try it. Promo codes let you give away free copies of your app, but unfortunately they’re laborious to create, awkward to redeem and impossible to track.

Thanks to MightyDeals Link

Thanks to MightyDeals.com for sponsoring the Macdrifter feed this week. Ask anyone who’s ever tried to knock in a nail with a screwdriver: having the wrong tools is a major hindrance. Access to the right tools saves time, increases the quality of your work and adds to the pleasure of doing a job well. The trouble for designers & developers is that there are so many tools out there, it’s hard to know what’s worthwhile, let alone being able to afford half of the resources we want.
