Submit An App For Review
We love getting information about new apps, or apps we may have missed.
We encourage you to send us information about your apps and accessories. Here’s what we need. The information below is pretty clear so we hope this helps. Please read it all, before you submit your request to us.
What to send us.
When you send us info about your new apps or accessories, we like to get the info, without all of the marketing fluff. We need the meat of the info so that we can quickly look at your app to see if it’s a good fit for our site.
No matter what your app, make sure to send it with a compelling description of your application, screen shots, and links to videos (YouTube preferred). Include what differentiates your app from other similar ones. Keep the attachments to a minimum in the email. If you have more than a megabyte, set up a Google Drive and share the documents from there. It will be much easier.
It’s worth spending the time to do this right. After all, why should we spend the time if you aren’t willing to do so? Sending incomplete info to us shows, and lets us know that your app is most likely incomplete too.
Include a Promocode?
You don’t have to submit your info with a promocode for us to look at it and consider it for review, but in most instances it will help as it just makes it quicker for us to take a look. It’s what promocodes are for after all.
Pre-Release! Yes, please!
We will occasionally look at a TestFlight build. But it’s an extra step that we don’t usually have that much time for.
We strongly recommend you stage the release of your app. Get the app approved by Apple then set your release date out so you can drive PR to a particular date. This also gives you the big plus of being able to generate promo codes (even for free apps) so that we can take a look at the final app, from the App Store. It makes a big difference in some cases.
Where to send it.
It’s important that you send it to the right site.
You can submit your iOS apps and games for review by sending us the detail above to: [email protected]
What we will review.
In reality we will only be able to review a small percentage of what people send us. Here are some things the go into the decision on what we review.
First off, the app needs to look good. The graphical assets should be similar in quality to the best apps and games out there.
Secondly, it needs to be original or unique. With a flood of similar games each with similar mechanics, it’s refreshing to see a new idea, well implemented. There’s no need for the same old app.
Third, it has to be a good app or accessory. Quality always trumps marketing strategy. Well-designed content, interface, or levels in a game will shine through fairly quickly.
Finally, we look for apps that come with a solid amount of info and support material, professionally submitted. A link to the app store, a well-written summary paragraph, a link to a YouTube/Vimeo video, and some reasoning on what the app does well are always helpful.
We hope this explanation helps your efforts. We can’t guarantee all apps that fit these definitions will get a review published, but it should give them a leg up.
We have assembled a great review board that consists of top fitness experts and even “regular joe’s” to give different perspectives on your app.
