Here at TouchMyApps we are committed to not only bring the latest and best news, reviews tips and tricks on all things iPhone and iPod Touch, but also to build a community of likewise minded people. To this extent we will soon put into place the TMA forums.
Meanwhile, we also very much appreciate your comments on our work, that can be left using the easy-to-use “comments” feature available at the bottom of each of our article pages – whether it’s news, reviews, best-of or any other. And one such recent comments made me decide that we should show our appreciation in a more monetary way.
To this extent I announce that starting this moment I am initiating my own ChiffaN’s Comment of the Month contest. Each month I am going to select the best comment on one of MY pieces and reward it with a $10 iTunes Gift Card. Yes, I HAVE gone bonkers, cause I’m spending quite a substantial part of my own paycheque on it (unfortunately writing DOESN’T pay – at least until you readers make us one the top sites out there). Anyway, I must point out that I will pay special attention to the comments to my column pieces (The JBnator Diaries, iTête à iTête, ChiffaN’s Rants), though comments to my news and reviews may be rewarded as well if they will be found worthy.
The winner and inspirer of the contest for December 2009 can be found after the gap as well as a recap of the rules.
Update: Our Redeem Hunt is now LIVE!
For all you TMA readers who have enjoyed winning apps and iTunes gift cards via our many past giveaways, this should be right up your alley. In the very near future (hint: next 48 hours), we will be introducing our very first “TMA Redeem Hunt” contest, where “hidden” links placed in pre-selected posts will take you directly to the App Store to redeem the contest App as well as iTunes GCs. Winning of course will require a timely start, a quick clickity finger and lots of luck (finding the right post before someone else). As well, to make it a bit more fair and ensure you won’t be late to the event, we’ll be announcing the ETA (aka start time) of the Redeem Hunt giveaway via Twitter. You are following us right? See you on the other side! Arrrrgh!

TouchMyApps is giving away 20 copies (thats right, 20!) of Xewton Music Studio ($19.99), a truly amazing music production app that is essentially a miniature Garage Band on the iPhone/iPod Touch. For those who’ve missed our review, here’s what Matthew had to say:
Xewton Music Studio is a fine example of an application that works well on the iDevice thanks to its intuitive touchscreen. Everything perfectly executed, it’s the epitome/prime example of the possibilities on the App Store. I’ll say it once and I’ll say it 1,000 times: if you’re a striving musician/music composer or just an average Joe who just wants to show off the capabilities of the iDevice, the you can’t go wrong with XMS.
Xewton has also just been updated with several improvements, including the very handy MIDI Import feature. With 20 promo codes for us to hand out, your chances of scoring one is quite sweet indeed. Contest rules can be found after the break. Good Luck, my aspiring musician friend!
Imagine winning the 32GB iPod touch from Hexus.net and then snagging a huge deal from one of the headphone world’s sleekest amp manufacturers: Ray Samuels.

Therefore, Headphone Solutions‘ contest is a bit more involved: you must register and provide a good-quality review of any of the products they carry. The contest ends on 30 November.
Contest Rules after the gap:
