Boxcar 2.0 Promo Code Contest – Push Notifications For Twitter, Facebook, & Email Accounts

photo 2

We have 6 – count ’em, SIX! – free promo codes to give away for the newest version of the awesome Twitter – and now Facebook & E-mail – Push Notifications App, Boxcar 2.0!

Contest Deadline: Saturday October 10, 2009, 3:00pm US Pacific Time

We have the pleasure of offering six promo codes for the excellent app Boxcar 2.0, which pushes notifications for Twitter updates and Facebook updates, as well as select emails when forwarded to a special boxcar.io email account.

Notifications can have a customized sound effect, as well as open the app of choice upon viewing the alert (ie. Facebook alerts can open the Facebook app, Twitter alerts can open Twitterrific, etc…). More details about Boxcar 2.0 can be found on my earlier review of this app, here, or visit Boxcar’s website here.

Contest winners will receive one promo code, to be redeemed for the Boxcar 2.0 app in the US iPhone App Store, which also includes the use of one notification service (Twitter alerts or Facebook alerts or e-mail alerts). Additional services can be added via in-app purchase.

Read on for details about how to enter the contest!

    Looks cool.

  • ignar

    Thanks for the chance!

  • iggy

    Interesting, would definitely be a useful app.

    I wonder, does the promo code works for non-US iTunes?

    • As I mentioned in the original post, the promo code is only good for a US iTunes account. If you don't have a US-based account, you can't redeem the promo code. Sorry, just how it is…

  • It's cheaper than Mobile Me!

    • Keep in mind this isn't pushing the emails themselves, just a notification alert, popup, and/or sound. Boxcar provides no mail functionality in itself, the email is still received via the Mail app at whatever interval you have set.

  • I'm using GPush, but Boxcar intrigues me.

  • I saw this from your tweet! Sounds great!

  • brainspin

    Doh, In-App purchase…

  • This allows the dev to sell the app at the low price point as the original Boxcar, which was Twitter push only, as well as be able to offer additional services to those users who desire them, without forcing everyone to purchase a higher-priced app when perhaps they don't need the additional functionality. IMO, this a an excellent way to utilize in-app purchases.

    • Unlike that "other" app which turned into a huge fiasco! LMAO

      • You referring to the Tweetie 2.0 debacle? LOL! Yeah that was exciting wasn't it?! 😉

        Just to clarify, Boxcar 2.0 *is* a free upgrade for existing owners. If you've purchased Boxcar 1.x, then you upgrade to the base version of Boxcar 2.0 at no charge.

        That allows you to maintain the same level of functionality, with the option of then adding additional services (fb, email, Twitter searches, etc).

        That's why I think this is a clever way to add major features without requiring a whole new purchase but also allowing the dev to get comp'd for his work. 🙂

"Push, for the world!"

      Seems like this poster named "Bob" used exactly the same name as me.
      I'm not here to point fingers at anyoen, just want to clear things up.

      I posted for about 11h ago, with this post:

      I am in no relation to the other user named "Bob", just so you know that I'm not double-posting.

      My full name is Bob Fowler.

      I hope this can sort things out, if there should be any problems.

  • Ivan Williams

    I'm not in this to win, since I already have the application. But, at present I can't seem to get Facebook notifications. I don't understand why it's not working for me.

    Well, I've emailed the support team, and am awaiting a reply…

  • fellowweb

  • Bill

    I was just reading about Boxcar, would be cool to try it out.

  • Alexis A.

    This sounds great! I really need a push app for twitter.

  • Looks like a solid app !! Haven't used push yet so this would definitely be cool to have.
    I'm sure I posted a comment yesterday but don't see it …. so will post again, if I double posted please ignore the one.

  • Raphael

    Yay, I just bought Tweetie 2 (begged mum like crazy…) and was uber disappointed that there is no Push notifications for it. Thus, I need (really really need) Boxcar for the push notifications. Thanks

  • Raphael

    I really need it, after getting Tweetie 2 (begged my mum like mad) I was uber disappointed that it did not have push notifications. Thus, i really really need Boxcar.
