Granny Coder wins: Gelex free for the weekend! Contest afoot!

AR-gelex-free-contest-04

Last time the name Gelex crossed TMA, we were busy getting you to shout โ€œI want Gelex for free!โ€. Well, just two weeks and a few days later, Gelex has been released at the App Store and thanks to all of your hard work, is FREE for a limited time. Seller Pavel Barak has released Gelex for the hefty discount of 100% for this weekend only, but fortunately, the good cheer doesn’t end there.

Handjoy, the Granny Coder, and the gods of grace and mercy have conspired for one last bit of good news: a contest in which entrants can win some nice App Store loot. The catch? There is a catch: you have to download Gelex, do damn well in it, add its author as a friend on Facebook, and if that isn’t enough, brag to your friends how well you did. Whew!

Unless you are trying to make the last train home, it is never too late to start. The Granny Coder, a 78 year-old grandmother from Czech is proving this very maxim in the creation of a new arcade physics puzzle-game, Gelex. Years ago, she studied the programming languages C and C++, for an IT stint, but now, retired and battling increased free-time, she has picked up iPhone programming. Gelex has even better news: Handjoy are scheming to debut it at reduced price, or in the case that enough people shout and stamp about it on internet, it will be introduced for free in a few weeks.

By the way, “I want Gelex for free!”
