Free Paratrooper on WebOSAppDay

Today the WebOS community is celebrating the 1 year anniversary of the Palm Pre by buying apps to support developers. Of course, we love this idea and want to give back to the community with a little contest of our own.

To participate, make Paratrooper your #WebOSAppDay purchase and then tweet about it. Make sure to include the words “Paratrooper” and “#WebOSAppDay” in your tweet. At the end of today, we’ll pick 10 winners at random and pay for your copy of Paratrooper!

(A couple of details: If you don’t already follow @kaboomapps follow us so that we can DM you for your winnings. Alternatively, look for a tweet from @kaboomapps tomorrow to see if you have won. We’ll pay each winner $2.50 USD via paypal to cover your purchase price and any paypal fees. Void where prohibited)

Palm Loves Developers

Palm is known for treating their developers well. However, I was completely blown away to get this package delivered to my door today.

I received an email a few weeks ago from a Palm employee who indicated they had used Paratrooper as part of their CTIA and CES booth. Since they were retiring the panel, they wanted to know if I was interested in re-using it.

He indicated the panel was large, but I had no idea. The box was 10 feet tall and 4.5 feet wide!

The print looks so good, my daughters thought the keyboard might actually work.

Larger than life! It’s fun to see a 10 foot tall version of Paratrooper running on the Pixi.

Thank you Palm for sending this along. Another example of Palm treating their developers like first class members of the team.
