Pittsburgh Pirates fans – Pirates Breakdown is giving you a chance to win a free iTunes or Google Play gift card simply by reviewing our app!

Since the launch of our free mobile apps, Pirates Breakdown’s relationship with its readers has reached a new level.

The initial response to our app has been fantastic – with a large amount of downloads over the app’s first two weeks of existence. For that, we thank you dearly.

Now, we are looking for feedback on how to make the apps even better. To that, end we are running a contest this week – now through Sunday January 1st – aiming to increase our reviews of the app both on iTunes and Google Play.

We will pick two winners; one iPhone/iPad user will receive a $25 iTunes Gift Card; and the other will receive a $25 Google Play gift card. We will pick one from each platform.


And all you have to do is write us a review!  Here’s how it works:

  1. Download Our Mobile Apps if you haven’t already.

  3. Send us the screenshot, and you’re in!

    Once you have the screenshot, send it to us however you like!  You can let us know by tweeting at, or DMing us through our twitter; You can leave us a comment on our Facebook page; or if you’re old school, you can email it to us at this address: app – at – piratesbreakdown.com.

And that’s it!  We’ll pick two winners at random, one from the iphone/ipad reviews, and one from the google play reviews. Winners will be drawn from submission on January 2nd!

Thank you for helping us make the app the best it can be, and GOOD LUCK!
