    The referral system seems to be broken. I referred four friends and I still see the empty boxes...

    I think the empty boxes don't actually appear until Christmas even if you've referred someone- at least that's what the forum on macheist seems to be saying.

    Love the free software.

    It is not broken. You have to invite AND your friends have to sign up to receive credit.

    I hadn't even heard of Enigmo 2 until I got the email from MacHeist today. Looks like an excellent puzzle game.

    Am I missing something, where do you get the serial #?:confused:

    You have to get 2 people to sign up? then it's not really free then is it?:(

    sounds like a pyramid scheme. To quote a famous book "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch."

    After you sign up the little tag that you entered your info on should refresh and display a serial number. Just copy that and paste it into the window prompt when you open the app.

    Thanks! My friends just signed up for an account and I saw the white box turn into a pink box. I'm still waiting for the last box. Thank you MacHeist!

    I don't know how ethical this is, but you can email yourself (if you have two extra emails) and then create two more MacHeist accounts. This will unlock the the last two apps.

    edit: Actually, I do know how ethical it is. It's cheating. I'll just have to send out a couple personal emails to absolve myself of this heinous crime.

    Sounds cool and really interesting. I'm waiting for a few of my friends to sign up so that i can open up the last 2 boxes. Anyone have an idea what are the last 2 applications?

    I would like to hear from someone who has actually won an iPhone app from macgivingtree. Any Macrumors members out there who have won one yet?

    yeah, if they don't sign up it doesn't count i don't believe. i referred two friends, both signed up, and i have four presents under the tree now. and enigmo 2 is a wicked fun game. i'm not sure synergy will replace coversutra (especially since i bought it before the recent price drop) but it seems to be a pretty slick app regardless.

    I really want the Ringtone Studio-does anyone know how many referrals you need to get it unlocked? I have like 5 but I can't get the thing yet.

    You need at least two of those people to sign up for MacHeist to unlock the last two apps.
