In a move that is sure to make developers happy, Apple has apparently doubled the amount of promo codes that can be given away for each version of an app to 100. Previously, the maximum amount of codes a developer could give per app version was capped at 50. But that new amount should definitely give the developers a better chance to drum up excitement and press coverage for their titles. Here at AppAdvice, we also use promo codes from developers to take a look at apps before they are released so we can post a review or news right after a title hits the App Store. We also partner with developers to give away free copies of their apps, and hopefully we’ll be able to do more of that with the increased code limit. Apple has yet to officially confirm the move on the developer portal news page. Even so, many developers took to Twitter to announce the news. And 9to5Mac also posted the pictured screenshot showing the new number of available codes. According to MacStories, the limit for book publishers is still interestingly set to 50 promo codes.
