HP is offering TouchPad users six paid apps absolutely free for a limited time. The promotion comes shortly after HP discontinued the WebOS tablet after less than two months on the market and sparked a fire liquidation sale.
The offer was announced on the official HP Palm blog yesterday. The apps in question range from games to a bird watching guide and vary in price from $0.99 to $14.99. As of writing, only customers in the US can score these apps for free but HP plans to expand the offer to other countries soon.
To score the free apps, simply click on the links below on your TouchPad then enter in the promo code. You will need a credit card tied to your account for verification purposes but it won't be charged.
