Update #2 3 August
We have now sent emails to everybody who won one of our giveaway prizes. Congratulations to you all!
If you haven’t received an email, please accept our commiserations. However, you should probably first check your ‘Junk’ folder, just in case any email has been wrongly filed.
For one final time, we would like to publicly thank all of the wonderful people who helped to make this such a great event by donating prizes. We really couldn’t have hoped to have celebrated our birthday in greater style. The combined value of all the prizes that we have given away today exceeds US$8000! Thank you to you all!

Update 26 July
The first of our giveaways will be posted to the site tomorrow.
It’s important that you read the notes and entry instructions for each giveaway thoroughly. Doing so will make sure that your name goes into the hat and will also make things a lot easier for us.
For now, here are some important notes:
- You can enter each giveaway only once.
- You can enter as many of the giveaways as you wish.
- Because of the value of the prizes involved, there will be some giveaways which if you win you will not be eligible for any of the other giveaways. This will be indicated in the notes for the relevant giveaways.
As a hint of the scale of what’s coming, there are prizes worth more than US$3000 in total up for grabs this week. We cannot stress how appreciative we are of the developers and companies who have joined with us to make this possible.
Update 24 July
We now have a number of great giveaways scheduled for every day next week (Monday through Friday). To make it easier for you to keep track of these, we’ll be using this post to provide a running list of all of the giveaway posts. Each one will be added to this list as soon as it goes live.
So, to make sure that you don’t miss out on your chance to win any of the prizes donated by the great people who have offered to join with our celebrations, you may want to bookmark this page for quick and easy reference.
AppleVis will be celebrating its 5th birthday on 29 July, and we want you to join us at the party. The information, help and support provided by all of the wonderful people in our community has made AppleVis the invaluable resource that it is today; thus, we thought that our 5th birthday would be a great opportunity to say a big "thank you!" to everyone who has helped make AppleVis a success.
To make our 5th birthday celebration a reality, a number of wonderful developers and companies have provided us with promo codes, software licenses, accessories, iTunes Gift Cards, and discount codes to give away to members of our community during the week of our 5th birthday. We won't be providing specifics just yet, but we can say that we are thrilled by the prospect of what we will be giving away. There are many great prizes to be had, and we are certain that you won't want to miss out. So, be sure to mark in your diaries that the week commencing 27 July 2015 is "AppleVis Birthday Giveaway Week".
If you are a software developer or accessory supplier, it's not too late to join us in our celebrations. Simply send an email to [CLOSED] saying how you would like to be involved.
We look forward to seeing you for our first giveaway on 27 July. We have a great one lined up to get the celebrations started, so be sure not to miss it!
