App Review Site Contact List
I've decided to start a thread dedicated to keeping a list of contact information for sites that review apps for developers to use in their promotion efforts. As a base, I used the Excel document I created when I was doing this for my own app. You can find the link to it here:
Right now it's an Excel document, which most people should be able to open one way or another.
I'd like to keep it updated, but as we only release a new issue quarterly I don't keep it open on a daily basis. If you decide to use it, please let me know if any contact information changes or if any sites go dark. I'd be happy to release a new file every so often so people are always up-to-date. Right now it could use a little clean-up. You can use this thread to announce updates, send me a PM, or use the email address on my site.
I want to start adding in tech blogs and other websites that announce new apps or companies, so if anyone has a list they have used, please contribute it. I will add in the ones we contact as well. Please don't include websites that do not announce apps. If a website or blog only operates in one language, please note that.
Lastly, welcome to all the indie developers out there. Its great to have a forum for ourselves, so lets make it a good one. Good luck with all your promotion efforts.

Nice idea! Thanks for including AppShopper there.
A couple of notes:
Semi-shameless plug: I would recommend that any developer looking to have their app reviewed by any site read this list of tips to improve your chances of getting a review. Snark aside, the tips there are really intended to help you.

Thanks Marianne! I'll change your info in the next version. That's a great post by the way.
I forgot about TouchArcade. The entire games-only section needs a bit of work because my app isn't a game and I skipped games-only sites when I was collecting the data for my own use. I'll try add in the major ones this weekend.
Also, if the Mac App Store developers here are interested, I can start collecting sites that review only Mac Apps in a separate section.

Updated the file this morning. Mostly cleaning up. Verified that sites are still there, moved a bunch of them to the defunct list if they didn't seem to be posting new reviews. Added in TouchArcade.
