I wish I could say this was my idea, because I think it's brilliant, but I didn't think of it. I was working with a client who owns a daycare center and we got to talking about kids apps. She uses tablets in her facility and said many school systems are beginning to also use them even in the lower grades. She has a posted list of “good” kids apps in her facility and after previewing three of my apps said if I would give her a copy of them she would be happy to add them to her list. Then she suggested "adopting" a school that uses apps in their classrooms. Gifting them a copy (or several copies) in exchange for adding the app to THEIR recommended list of kids apps. They could also give some good feedback on features and usability. I bet libraries that have tablets in use would be another good source.If the "gifts" were timed right, that could give a real boost to the early sales that seem to grab Apple's attention.
