Wowio Gives Free Gift

When Wowio was down for its ownership transfer earlier this year, I said I wanted to be notified when they returned. Because of that, I got an email with a link promising a free gift. It’s an almost 14-MB download of an 87-page sampler. The contents are

  • Wowio Overview — “introduces the highlights and features that’ll help you make the most of your Wowio experience”
  • The Adventures of Tymm: Alien Circus #1 — a 50-page Platinum kids’ comic, ending “to be continued”
  • The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County — the 1865 Mark Twain book, with illustrations

The overview section is two pages of “we’re great.” I found it interesting that the options discussed are “read online for free” or “purchase and download”. They’re trying to eliminate the previous model of “download for free”, it appears.

If you want to see for yourself, that link doesn’t appear to be restricted or protected. Unfortunately, their mass mailing didn’t include an “unsubscribe” link, which I thought was standard in such emails.

    I think this primer/sampler is a good idea. However, since Wowio came back on line, they’ve had a free gift policy.

    The first comic (of any type) any account wishes to download is free. It is sponsored by EA Sports. After that, all comics are charged the regular price.

    Yes, but if they’re not mentioning the free download policy in their introductory/promotional materials, that makes me wonder how long those kinds of offers will be around.

  3. Dave Says:


    Given the policy changes Wowio has already made, and those they continue to make, I’m sure you’re right.

    So, with this being the probability, we should all rush over to Wowio to get our (final?) free comic while we can! :)

    Free gift downloads are a feature of the new WOWIO, and we continue to actively seek sponsors.
