For those who signed up for the hookflash for iPad early preview, thank you for signing up!

We have received thousands of early access requests, which we take as a great sign!

But now we are faced with a dilemma.

Considering Apple limits us to 100 test accounts prior to launching in the app store, who gets in!?  We need 40 accounts for our own internal use and testing. That leaves 60 accounts for our early access users.

It seemed clear to us that we should let our users decide who gets in. The process would have to be fair and would need to be publicly monitored so nobody feels jilted. So here’s the deal, if you want in, this is what you need to do…

  1. Follow @hookflash on Twitter.
  2. Tweet about the feature you would like to see most in hookflash for the iPad. Could be a design element, feature, interoperability request etc. Be sure to include @hookflash in your post.
  3. The top 60 people with the most Twitter mentions (must include @hookflash) before January 6 2012, will get a spot in the early preview.

Tweet as many times as you like. We will announce the winners the first week in January. Who knows, maybe your suggestion will make it into the product!

For those who win, see you in hookflash! Good luck to all who decide to participate.

Our very best wishes to everyone this holiday season!

The onslaught of activity brought by those tracking and conversing around various Macworld announcements has calved Twitter on a few occasions today and still seems quite slow.
