Redeem App Promo Codes From Your iPhone

This tip comes in the wake of last week’s announcement that now allows developers to give away promotional copies of their apps. According to Apple, you must redeem the code with iTunes on your computer which will then download the app for syncing to your iPhone. However, this may not be convenient if you’re on the road without a computer handy. To redeem an app promo code, open the iTunes app on your iPhone, tap “Downloads” and then “Redeem”.

Enter your code and iTunes will tell you that the iPhone must be synced in order to download the app. However, if you exit the iTunes app and open the App Store, your app will immediately begin downloading in the background. After a few seconds, you can exit the App Store and watch as the new app is downloaded to your phone. It’s that easy!

Now if only the iPhone had copy/paste, it’d be really easy.
