MeterRead Promo Code Giveaway! (Closed)

meterread_promo1TouchMyApps is giving away 10 copies of MeterRead (Go Green!), a rare App Store offering that helps you track energy usage and one that has the potential to help you save your hard earned money  (not to mention helping the environment as well by being more energy conscious).

Studies show that motivated people who monitor their energy use generally save around 10-20% on their electric bill. This could add up to hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year and by saving energy you will be doing your part to keep this planet healthy and green.

To win one of 10 copies, simply leave a comment and give us one or more ways on how you can save energy and be a little more ‘green’. Winners will be selected randomly and the contest will close Jan 31, 2009 @ 6pm EST. Be sure to check out Shigzeo’s article on MeterRead as well as our interview with the father and son dev team.

It is long, sometimes convoluted and extremely biased, but I think you will find this team to be witty, clever and ready to storm the app store with more unique ideas.
