How to get Shadowmatic for free on iPhone or iPad outside the US


Apple gives away apps for free on the App Store as part of its “App of the Week” promotion. That happens every Thursday and lasts for, you guessed it, a week.

But the App Store is not the only place where Apple hands apps for free. Call it a new “tradition” if you will, as Apple uses its Apple Store´s mobile app to lure potential buyers with a cost-free paid app.

Now, it´s the turn for Triada´s $2.99 Shadowmatic, a puzzle game that will be available for free for a limited time for US Apple Store users.

How do you get the promotion outside the United States? Before we start with a list of steps to download the almost $3 game, you need to create an American Apple ID without credit or debit card by following Apple´s simple steps here.

You will also need to install a VPN on your iPhone. I recommend you try ArkVPN for free.

Now, this is what you have to do to get your hands on Shadowmatic:

  1. Download and open the free Apple Store app
  2. Turn on the VPN on a US location (New York is a good spot)
  3. Open the app and swipe down until you find the Apple Music ad
  4. Tap on the Shadowmatic banner to be redirected to the App Store
  5. Redeem the free Shadowmatic code

That´s it; now you´re the owner of Triada´s game. Here´s Shadowmatic´s description, in case you´re not familiar with the app:

Shadowmatic is an imagination-stirring puzzle where you rotate abstract objects in a spotlight to find recognizable silhouettes in projected shadows, relevant to the surrounding environment.

You don’t need a VPN to get the free game; just open the App Store app and redeem the code with your American Apple ID.
