2015 App Reviewer Survey from Big Ideas Machine

| February 19, 2015 | 1 Comment

Last fall (2014) I participated in a survey of over 50 app reviewers by Big Ideas Machine, about how we decide which apps to cover, how many requests we get, how best to get our attention and other aspects of this new industry.

The results are very interesting, with just a few charts I’ve shared here. I found myself nodding my head often in agreement, although there are a lot of nuances to getting an app reviewed, especially depending on your app’s genre, audience and long-term value. I know I learned a lot!

After reading, I suspect this will make a great #storyappchat next month!
