1. How many android app preview websites did you contact and send a demo to?
Does anyone have a recommendation for some good app review websites? I've seen a few spammy ones around, just wondering if there's one or two sites people actually find useful?
It seems that 8 days is the minimum time between updates, to qualify for this "just-in" status. A few developers have reported this figure, and it's worked for me recently.
I don't really understand why Angry Birds is free on Android? Anybody know?
As a consumer, I like this approach with games because many times there are games that are fun, but just not fun enough for a purchase or the replay-ability factor is just low. So if I find myself going back to a game more than a few times, the purchase is such low cost (less than coffee) that it is worth it to get rid of nag-screens.
Also, regarding Android and free... most people that buy Android phones are expecting free stuff. The cost of those phones is roughly the same as an iPhone, it's just the mindset is different.
While Hacker News was once a relevant, useful place to find good tech news, it's quickly degenerating into a steaming pile of shit driven by a bunch of thin-skinned Android sycophants. It's unfortunate (not to mention how unfortunate it is that such a useless post as this is even on the front page here to begin with).
Anybody mind reposting it in quotation marks if they happen to have it saved? Or if zrgiu himself could post of a summary of what he originally said, that would be grand.
I don't know about Android, but I made hundreds of dollars on Day 1 of my app being available on the iPad App Store and know a LOT of friends who have made thousands of dollars on Day 1 from their iPhone apps. Please don't generalize about app sales revenues across Android and iOS because it's like comparing raindrops to a downpour.
