At Gourmet Live, you (the user) are the most important influence on our development. You’ve inspired us to really think about how we can best acknowledge and thank you for your continued dialogue and feedback — even those of you who don’t yet have iPads.
First, you will notice that Kelly has started posting full pieces from the app on our blog. Yep, full articles as they appear in Gourmet Live. And they’re usually juicy ones that are drumming up tremendous interest and excitement, like the piece on tipping, the article on Marcus Samuelsson, the behind the scenes video on board the MS Queen Elizabeth and the Q&A with Eric Ripert.
But here’s one more thing you’ve inspired, and we hope you’re excited about it, too …
Starting today we are GIVING AWAY the chance for YOU to own an iPad, and we’re doing it every week. We want to give more of you the chance to experience Gourmet Live on the device it’s currently available on, so each week from now through the end of the year, someone new is going to win an Apple Gift Card for a new iPad, and it could be you. The best part is that each week is a new chance for you to be entered to win, so you can enter again and again. You can check out the rules and enter here. We’ve got some cool tools if you want reminders, like a Facebook widget with food tips that you can add to your profile.
As with any launch, there are bumps in the road, and we’ve been so lucky that we have a passionate group of enthusiasts who give it to us straight all the time. Much of this feedback has been about devices and that many of you are looking forward to Gourmet Live on the iPhone and iPod Touch, and some of you love your Droids. Some of you even said you’d play Gourmet Live on the Wii and we are PSYCHED to hear that. We developed in HTML5, which makes all of this possible, and we anticipate being available on new platforms soon. It won’t happen just yet, which is why we hope you enter today. GOOD LUCK!
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. A purchase will not increase your chances of winning. Entry period begins October 19, 2010 and ends December 31, 2010. For Official Rules please click here.
