Hey, Mr. App Review Man, Stop Asking Money From Me!

Leave a comment

This is a real steamer.

One of the first things you find when you search for “Promote your iOS App” (It’s ok, we’ve all done it) is article 1/2/5 (depending on the company trying to promote itself by writing a blog) – “Get your app reviewed by bloggers and app review sites”.

You think to yourself “Hey, that’s great! I have a good app, I’ll write to them and if they’ll like it, they’ll review it. Basically, they’re app news sites, right?”. AHHHH, wrong.

These sites all have the exact same reply:

“Thanks for submitting to us. We’d love to review your app, but we’re just overly swamped with tons of requests because our site is really really really popular. The good news is, you can ensure a review for X dollars! of course, you can choose not to pay, and we will still review your app. in about 5-10 years.”

So, our advice is – if you were fortunate enough to land here before wasting countless hours on meaningless submissions, direct your marketing efforts elsewhere. For example, you can write a blog about what it’s like to develop an app and hope it will catch on.

It all started in 1986, when a new born baby… No, that's too far. It actually started in 2007, when a group of friends tried to get together for a decent night of Poker, but everybody was just too busy. Luckily, we later found the time to do something about it. The first idea was E-Mail based Poker. But with the growing usage of smartphones, it was decided to adapt the idea to the mobile industry and turn it into an app. That app was called AdultFriendFinder. Just kidding, it was called Poker Friends. Poker Friends is the first turn-based multiplayer game in the world, with over 1.5M already invested in development and some of the biggest names in the industry heavily involved in the project. Plus, our CEO has a tattoo in a very unusual place – But to get that story, you'll at least have to buy us an interview first. For further details, contact us at
