App Review Sites are a good way to get more attention and downloads for your apps. The problem is, they get hundreds of pitches a day.
We can vouch for that, we look at hundreds of apps a month, and yes we do ask for the name of the app and link to the iTunes store. Another suggestion we have is to include the age range that you feel the app is best suited for. Just in case you missed our last blog, we mention the App Gap and talk about the open opportunity for anyone to embrace this group that is least addressed. Yet who's carrying the most iPads? tweens and teens! This void that exists in apps for upper elementary and middle school grades is prime real estate for anyone in the market.
