Ulysses iOS App – Prize Draw Winners

iconAs promised, I did a random prize draw this morning from the list of people who entered for free copy of the Ulysses iOS app. We had almost 200 entries for the Prize Draw in just a couple of days.

The five lucky winners drawn at random to receive a free copy of Ulysses for iOS were:

  • Christopher Robbins
  • Charlie George
  • Roy Lindsay
  • Michael Gregory
  • Rafael Pamula

I’ve emailed the winners directly and sent their names and email addresses to The Soulmen, the developers of Ulysses – the winners will receive their redemption code very shortly.

Thanks so much to all that entered, congrats to the winners and commiserations if you didn’t get picked out – better luck next time!

Don’t forget, you can learn all about the amazing Ulysses app for the Mac, iPad and iPhone in our new two part tutorial over on the ScreenCastsOnline website (Part 1 & Part 2), via the SCO Showcase App or in this months ScreenCastsOnline Monthly Magazine.

iDeveloper.TV Prize Winners

Despite being away, I was still able to pick the winners of the iDeveloper.TV video training competition that’s been running for ScreenCastsOnline Extra members in January.

And the winners are:

  • Michael Anderson
  • Jonathan Isaacs
  • Tony Watkins

We had 420 entries into the prize draw and three random numbers were generated via random.org to select the winners. Emails have been posted and Scotty has been informed.

Thanks for taking part and thanks to Scotty over at iDeveloper.TV for the most generous prize.

If you’re a regular follower of the show, you’ll know I did a prize draw for one of ten free licences to Forklift 2, donated by BinaryNights, at the end of episode SCO0279 – ForkLift 2

Well the deadline has passed and we had 449 entries – not too shabby!

Utilising the excellent Random.org service, I created a set of 10 random numbers:

This equated to the 10 luck winners below (based on their position in my email folder):

  • Jason Lord
  • Brian Engquist
  • Henk ‘t Hart
  • Howard Fuller
  • David Free
  • Christopher Hall
  • Stefan Jung
  • Charlie P. Lenglez

ScreenCastsOnline Prize Draw – June 2008

35B7C4E9-3E00-4F87-B214-A238A834DF15.jpgI’ve started up a new prize draw as from June 2008 for new members joining ScreenCastsOnline each month and existing members who renew during the same month.

The prizes are pretty spectacular (OK, well I think they are!) and for June 2008 include:

First Prize

  • 1GB iPod Shuffle ($49 value)
  • 5 Year ScreenCastsOnline Charter Membership ($199 value)
  • Full Set of ScreenCastsOnline DVDs ($30 value)
  • A new ScreenCastsOnline Archive DVD each year ($65 value)
  • ScreenCastsOnline BaseBall Cap ($14 value)

Second and Third Prize

  • Full Set of ScreenCastsOnline DVDs ($30 value)
  • ScreenCastsOnline BaseBall Cap ($14 value)

The way it works is that I create a separate mailbox and copy in all the email confirmations from new members and renewing members. I then switch on the email numbers so each has a unique number and then use the “Research Randomiser” website to generate three unique numbers.

So for June 2008, the winners are:

First Prize: Dominique Provost from Belgium [Renewing Member]

Second Prize: Thomas Sparrow from USA [Renewing Member]

Third Prize: Alain Gauthier from Canada [Renewing Member]

So by the completely random nature of the draw, it’s all renewing members this month!

I’ll be running the prize draw each month continuing with July so if you sign up as a new ScreenCastsOnline member or if you renew your membership in July, you’ll automatically be entered into the prize draw.
