While Brandon Watson is offering an alternative to webOS developers in the form of transition support, AdDuplex is offering a little help of their own. The offer is simple, port your app to Windows Phone and AdDuplex will give you 20,000 ad impressions.
As with most free offers there are rules (to prevent anyone from taking advantage of the deal) and they are as follows:
- Have an app published in the official application store on other mobile platform before August 22, 2011.
- Port and publish it in Windows Phone Marketplace from August 22, 2011 to December 31, 2011.
- Request your 20,000 ad impressions coupon by sending links to your app on the other platform and Windows Phone platform to firstname.lastname@example.org
While this will help webOS developers get started, the offer is also being extended to Android, iOS, and Blackberry developers. It's nice to see the Windows Phone community offer alternatives to webOS and other developers.
Even if webOS finds a way to survive (which we hope it will) these offers will give developers a means to diversify their lineup.
