Get Your App Reviewed....FREE!!

joshcaljoshcal Posts: 100Member
Hey! its been a while since i posted here! you guys may remember me from last time around when i was developing games with GameSalad. Unfortunately i no longer have the time to develop applications, however i have created something to help all you guys out which i do have the time to do!

introducing...RecoReviews. My new Application review website! My website is aimed at helping people like you (small companies / individual developers) to get your apps reviewed and noticed! I believe that a strong point i can 'bring to the table' is my past experience of being a individual developer, and the knowledge of how hard it can be to get your app out there and noticed! When i was a developer i also noticed how hard it can be to get in contact with some reviewers, and then having to consider paying for a review or not.

Well you no longer need to worry! I have came up with a simple form which will help guide you through the steps of which it takes to submit the information to get your application reviewed! By introducing this form it reduces confusion when trying to submit your app for a review, and the best bit is.... for the time being.... its FREE!

When you visit the website you will see that it is currently pretty empty, however i do have previous experience of reviewing apps, and i have been practicing ;) It would be an complete honour for you to submit your apps for a review, as it would really benefit both the website (with its growth) & you developers with the publicity of your applications!

Even if you do not have an app which you would like reviewed it would be great if you could favourite the site, or even just visit it to see whats going on! you never know; it could come in helpful in the future! xD

Heres the current link to the site: www.righttouchgames.com HOWEVER PLEASE NOTE, this is not the official web address, the web address is "www.recoreviews.com" but I'm just waiting for the provider to activate the web forwarding ;):)

I hope to hear from you soon!
-Josh! :)

    I just got a review by Josh at www.recoreviews.com and think it was very fair, positive and had reasonable constructive improvement ideas. I also see he has a number of other games up for review soon, so if you are looking for some free exposure, it would be my recommendation to head over there and submit your app(s). A hidden benefit might be that by including a quote and URL in your app description may bring exposure to the site and therefore my marketing efforts might help you, and your efforts might help me etc. Hey it's free so its worth a shot right?

    more reviews have been uploaded to the website, and a couple of them are still in progress. We also have some more waiting to be reviewed and they will be uploaded some time over the next few days. However its christmas so they could take a bit longer than these ones have, as its a busy time for all of us! with a increase in the amount of submissions were receiving on a daily basis we will soon be looking for some reviewers to help us review some of the apps on a voluntary basis. The way this will work will soon be published onto the site allowing you to sign up to become a reviewer! we hope a lot of you will be interested in the success of the site, and want to help us make it become and even bigger success! The website is also updated on a regular basis, with new features and improvements so please keep supporting us and checking back! Also the reviews which we have published so far have been praised by all of the developers, so if you want a review please don't hesitate to submit your app to us!

    Thanks again, and i hope you all have a very happy christmas!
    Best wishes
    Josh

    i love the website
  • FloridaGamesFloridaGames Posts: 328Member
    I would definitely recommend getting your app review here, Josh's reviews are very detailed, honest, and well organized. Also the website itself is very well designed.
  • joshcaljoshcal Posts: 100Member
    Thanks again for all your comments! We also sincerely apologise for the website downtime which occurred yesterday. The reason for that was that we switched our host providers over and it took a couple of hours for it all to process. We are now back up and running, and all of the reviews have been transferred over to the new blog design which we are now using. The main reason for the change with the website was to speed up page loading times, and also to make sure that all of our reviews were properly organised. Like a few of you have noticed, we like to keep organisation in mind when it comes to our work, so our visitors can find exactly what they want with ease. We hope you like the new site just as much as you like the old website, and we can tell you now that service has returned to normal. The review list is also getting slightly shorter so developers who are looking for reviews please check out new website and get your reviews submitted!
    Thanks again for your patients and support!

    Appologies for the lack of bumps / posing recently, but we have been going through some tough times sorting out new web designs and trying to look for new people to help out with the website - something which is proving a lot harder than initially expected! The list is slowly getting shorter for reviews, so if you have submitted a review then the waiting time is coming down, however since we are relatively 'short staffed' we cannot publish reviews as fast as we had initially hoped! We have came up with some new system designs which should enable us to be able to write and publish reviews a lot more efficiently, but until this system is fully developed and put in place we are just moving at our usual pace.

    We've had some great feedback from developers recently on our reviews, so check those comments out on some of the posts, also if you are developer who has recently had their application reviewed by us, then please keep helping us promote our website! the more you promote the site, the more people will see the review of the application, resulting in a potential increase of sales! you don't have to be a mathematician to work that one out!

    I hope to hear from you developers wanting reviews soon - through the submissions section of the website, and for the rest of you i really hope you can help to continue to support the website and help us grow even more!
    Thanks again, and i hope you all had a great new year!

    As much as I like recoreviews and want my game reviewed, this thread is not aloud under the new forum rules! :)
  • joshcaljoshcal Posts: 100Member
    thanks for the comment leonard developer. I have re-read the rules however I'm not sure which section this threat relates to. If there is an issue with the thread then it would be great if someone from gs or a mod got in touch with me. Until then, bumping this back up! todays review has just been published so check it out!
    Thanks again
