Competitions

It’s competition time again, and this week we have three licenses for Espionage up for grabs. Espionage is a data encryption app for OS X, which we recently reviewed. If you don’t want the system wide performance hit of FileVault but do have the odd application/folder to encrypt, it’s a great solution.

As promised, we have three copies to give away. All you need to do is:

  1. Post a link to this competition – either on your website, or via Twitter
  2. Leave a comment, letting me know where you posted the link

Two comments will be selected randomly as winners on the 27th April. The third copy will be given away at some point this week via Twitter (we have a riddle planned!). To be in with a chance of winning, be sure to follow us!

Best of luck, and as with all competitions, there’s just one legal point to make – you aren’t eligible to take part if you work for Envato.

Thank you to everyone who entered our recent MarsEdit competition. I’m pleased to say that the results are in! If you haven’t used MarsEdit before, be sure to check out our review. It’s a great desktop blogging app for OS X.

Three copies of MarsEdit were up for grabs, with two going to randomly selected commenters, and one going to a random Twitter follower (selected via TwitRand). Here are the lucky three winners:

I run several blogs, one of which is a travel information blog about a province where I live. It’s a pretty great place, and has everything from awesome beaches, mountains to scale and art centers. I put alot of info in just one post, and editing them on the blog’s wysiwyg or on a word processor isn’t helping much. MarsEdit could help me managing this blog.

Would really like this app :-) Im still new to to Mac and OSX, and this would be the perfect app to manage my blog.

Congratulations to all the winners – you’ll be contacted shortly. If you didn’t win this time, don’t despair. We’ll be kicking off another competition to win Espionage early next week. To make sure you don’t miss out, feel free to follow us on Twitter, or subscribe to the RSS feed.

If you’re a Mac user and operate a website or blog, you owe it to yourself to check out MarsEdit. The app offers a simple way to manage a blog from your desktop, with a range of features including excellent media handling and system-wide bookmarklet support.

Red Sweater have kindly donated three copies to give away, worth $29.95 each. There are two ways to enter:

  1. Via Comment – Tell us why you’d like a copy! The more convincing the better – two comments will be chosen at random for a free license.

The competition will run for one week, with winners announced on Tuesday 14th April 2009. As with all competitions, there’s just one legal point to make – you aren’t eligible to take part if you work for Envato.

Good luck! I’m excited to read your (always entertaining) entries. If you just can’t wait, you can download MarsEdit to experience a fully featured 30 day trial.

Thank you to everyone (nearly 200 of you!) that took part in the Pixelmator contest. It’s a fantastic application, and definitely worth finding out more about if you’re looking for a Photoshop alternative.

Without further ado, the three winning comments are:

Congratulations, and I hope you enjoy using the app. Sorry if you missed out this time, but I do have one more copy of Pixelmator that I’ll be giving away at some point via Twitter. Feel free to follow AppStorm so you don’t miss out!

Next week we’ll be giving away three copies of MarsEdit, a desktop blogging tool for OS X. If you want to be in with a chance of winning, get yourself subscribed to the RSS feed.

It’s that time of the week again… are you feeling ready to enter another competition? This week we’re giving away three copies of the fantastic Pixelmator. I was really impressed with the app in my review, and am thrilled that we’ve been offered a few copies to give away to our delightful readers!

To enter the competition this week, you simply need to do two things:

  1. Post a link to this competition – either on your website, or via Twitter

Simple! The competition will run for one week, and I’ll pick three winning comments at random on April 3rd 2009. As with all competitions, there’s just one legal point to make – you aren’t eligible to take part if you work for Envato.

Best of luck!

Thank you to everyone who entered the RapidWeaver competition last week. It was fascinating to take a look at your websites, and great to run a concurrent competition via Twitter. The results are in, but before announcing the winners I’d like to say a big thanks to Real Mac Software for sponsoring a couple of competitions on AppStorm recently. They’re producing some fantastic apps at the moment!

I’m pleased to announce that the winning, randomly selected commenter is:

The Twitter competition winner, announced last Friday, was @autonomydesign with this delightfully random Tweet (in response to the question “What will you be doing this weekend?”)

Another competition will be kicking off later this week to win a copy of the fantastic Pixelmator, so do get subscribed via Twitter or RSS to be kept up to date!

RapidWeaver is a great app for designing websites in a visual, template driven environment. Having recently reviewed RapidWeaver, we’re lucky enough to have two copies to give away to you beautiful readers. If you’re searching for a simple and powerful way to design a website, look no further.

One copy will be given away via Mac AppStorm, and another via Twitter. To enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post with your current website address (or, if you don’t have a website, an idea for what you’d like to create with RapidWeaver)
  2. Follow us on Twitter – I’ll be asking a question via Twitter at a random time this week. The best answer will win!

Good luck, and feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions!

A huge congratulation to the winners – you’ll be contacted shortly. Sorry if you missed out, but you’ll have another chance to win again very soon. Next week’s competition will be for a RapidWeaver license, so stay tuned to Twitter or RSS to find out how to win!

Having recently reviewed the popular time tracking and invoicing tool Billings, we have yet another giveaway for you to grab a free copy for yourself. Billings is an excellent tool for managing clients, projects and the time you spend on particular pieces of work.

We’ve giving away two copies in two different ways:

  • Copy 1: This will be awarded randomly to one of our Twitter followers – just make sure you follow us to be in with a chance of winning.
  • Copy 2: Leave a comment on this post stating why you’d love a copy of Billings – one will be randomly selected as a winner.

You’re welcome to enter through both methods (following us on Twitter and leaving a comment), but you can only win one copy. Do both to double your chances of winning!

The competition will run for one week, and the winning follower and comment will be chosen at random on the 11th March 2009. As with all competitions, there’s just one legal point to make – you aren’t eligible to take part if you work for Envato.

Best of luck, and tell your friends!

Thank you to all those who entered our LittleSnapper competition – I’ve been thoroughly entertained to see all your desktops, and have discovered a bunch of new applications in the process. I was particularly fascinated by all your wonderful desktop wallpapers – very creative!

Here are a few that I particularly liked:

I’ve chosen one comment at random, and am pleased to announce that the winner is:

Tinu Cleatus with this wooden and minimalist desktop.

Congratulations and I hope you enjoy snapping away! Sorry to all of you who didn’t win this time, but there’s a great competition planned for Billings later this week, with two licenses on offer. Stay tuned via Twitter or RSS for more info!
