For to those of you who have cashed in on the best tablet buy we've seen to date, HP just made a move to sweeten the already ridiculous deal: a six-pack of paid webOS apps at no-cost. The apps retail from $0.99 to $14.99 but all of them are free to webOS users in the US until 11:59PM on August 31. The apps, descriptions and promo codes to get them for free are below courtesy of HP:

  • Glimpse (Inglorious Apps, $5, injoj55410gavxv): Amp up your TouchPad multitasking to 11 using this customizable and addictive split-screen interface.
  • Kung Fu Panda 2 Storybook (zuuka, $2.99, eotss76676jjzqr): Enjoy images and voices from Kung Fu Panda 2 right on your TouchPad.
  • Big Boss (Fair Play Labs, $1.99, vfimk09918lngoz): Design your “Boss” – a gigantic monster – and attempt to defeat the brave heroes and powerful wizards of WackyLands.
  • Sparkle HD (10tons Ltd., $4.99, pweuq32135vrbhx): Save Crowberry Woods in this TouchPad version of the popular desktop game.
  • Camera for TouchPad (Keen Studios, $0.99, rijon62171nhvtu): Start snapping away, with options for managing your photos and using them with other TouchPad apps. 
  • Audubon Birds (Green Mountain Digital, $14.99, jjiox66488ddnik): This searchable digital field guide to North American birds offers stunning photography and thrilling (trilling?) bird songs.

The offer expires on the 31st or when HP runs out of "inventory". There's likely a limit on the number of times these codes can be used, so if you're interested click on the link for each app and enter the promo code (in bold) on your TouchPad. If you need help on entering the codes click here.

HP also indicated the next six pack of apps would be out sometime in September. Here's hoping for continued support from HP for its newly expanded webOS user base.
