    Hey there!

    We have developed some little game apps, which are very much fun to play.

    Now we looking for random people to review the games.

    What are your experiences? Where to find such motivated people?

    Let me know.

    Hey Pete,

    I'm a YouTube subscriber who love doing reviews on all sorts of software and applications on the Mac and iPhone/iPod touch.

    The link to my YouTube page is below in my sig, but you can get in touch via YT, Mac Rumors or via my email.

    Thanks Again,

    Hey Dylan,

    I forgot to say that I talk about iPhone / iPod touch apps.

    So than I could give you a promo code and you'll have a look at the app...

    Are there others, doing it as well?

    I would certainly be willing to give feedback in return for a free app! It's the small developers without all the R&D budgets we should be supporting and i for one am willing

    I run an app review website where we try and focus on recently released and popular apps from the app store.

    We currently are working with a few developers to do pre-release reviews (via uid) but also work with many to do the post-release review via app codes, etc.

    Have a look, if you'd like go a head and contact me vi PM or via the website. I have 4 reviewers working on reviews now and looking to add more as well.

    We're also going to start running promotions to promote various apps, so if you're interested in that there's another option... we'd require minimum 3 promo codes however to participate in promotions.

    Good question... yes, we do have criteria by which we select apps that make it into a review. Since our reviews are very detailed (probably more so than any other reviewer out there) we have to weigh our time spent against the apps potential to become popular. Popular apps generate traffic and hence, we both win.

    Almost anything in the top 100 we will review. However, there are a lot of apps out there that are simply not worth our time and while I feel for developers trying to push apps there's just too much demand to review everything.

    Also, we have reviewed many apps that we felt the developer did a good job with, put an excellent foot forward and produced something worthwhile. This developer deserves some attention and we will almost always review these types of apps.

    Having said that, we are looking at ways to help everyone get some exposure while still benefiting our site in some way. Our answer for this is promotions. With promotions we don't have to spend a lot of time reviewing an app but use the app codes to garner interest in an app (and our site :D ). In the promos we'd take promo codes from pretty much any app and then give them away on a daily or weekly basis. So, in short, if someone submits an app for review and it is not chosen, we will use the promo code in a contest as a free giveaway. To be honest, people like free stuff, and this is an excellent way to get interest as people immediately will research the app that they may "potentially" win and may chose to buy it anyways if they don't.

    I hope this helps.. .if you have any questions please let me know.
