Hello fellow developers seeking for magic solutions to make their app successful,

Since you’re just joining us (Which makes sense, since this is our first post), we thought it would be a good idea to bring you up to speed and let you know what we’ve been doing these past few months. Since nobody reads these days, we’ll keep it short, sweet and in bullets:

– Our app is called Poker Friends. It’s a social poker app that tries to create the vibe of poker night with your friends, on your phone. It allows groups of friends to play poker together without having to be online at the same time (Turn-based), and now also offers live tables for killing time.

– We Launched Worldwide for iOS & Android on November 27th, 2012. So far we’ve got 49,000 downloads on Google Play, 31,000 downloads on iOS, 4115 downloads on SlideMe, 1,201 downloads on Samsung Apps, 440 downloads on Amazon, 207 downloads on Opera and 3 downloads on Apptoide. Man, we love those 3 downloads.

– We created a really awesome, unique video ad. We worked our butts off to make that ad happen, stayed days and nights, wrote and re-wrote, edited and re-edited, bought views, received worldwide praise and gained about 10 new downloads. Man, we love those 10 downloads.

– We created a one-of-a-kind invitation system. Super clever, you won’t find something like this in any other game. We increased virallity by hundreds of percents. That actually works great, thanks for asking. We’ll talk about it some more later.

So, here we are today, right on the verge becoming too rich and too busy to write a stupid blog, to share a bit about what goes on in our everyday lives. We’ll try to give some useful tips from our experience, and maybe help you guys to do better. Just don’t forget us when you’re on the cover of “Awesome App Magazine”!

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
