In house promo code redemption

In house promo code redemption

Google’s promo code solution is fine if you want to send out a specific promotion for a site to review your app, but of no use if you want to promote a free IAP to all your existing user or to encourage new installs of your Android app.

It’s a shame that Google do not supply this capability as it took me just 25 hours of coding and testing to add a generic promo generation and redemption mechanism to my Android word game “Your word against mine” 

Codes can be quickly generated with start and end dates and then redeemed in app by the user for immediate benefit.
