The Super Bowl Weekend Update and Valentines!


A quick little check - Super Bowl weekend

So, how did it go for you over the weekend? Did you release an app related to the Super Bowl?


Check out the chart below on my Football Juggling game on the Android Market:



Similar growth from other monitoring sites too. This from AppBrain:



And this from distimo:



Hope you did release an app for the Super Bowl.. check out the trending apps section now, and you will see some simple trivia apps in the trending lists.

The icing of the cake? Well, the revenue gains over the weekend has been awesome!

What's next?

Valentines Day!! You REALLY need to target this one! It is a superb opportunity in making money with your apps.

Here is an idea. Make a very simple greeting card app. Allow the users to pick from a range of background, key in a message (maybe you can provide some messages for them to pick), and then make a card as a bitmap to be sent to others via social media and email.

I'll need to get my hands dirty for this too, lacking any lovey dovey app!

Cheers!

AppBucks Push and Icon Ads - Alternative to Airpush, Leadbolt, SendDroid and StartApp

We developers are always on the lookout for better monetisation options for our mobile apps. With the recent slow down on the mobile advertising scene after the December spending spree, people are starting to question the ad networks. The thing is, there IS a slow down across all networks. It is weird in that in 2012, my revenues kept growing in January and February. Well, it looks like advertisers are also getting savvier and better using their funds on ads. Let me introduce you to AppBucks (referral link).

StartApp Ads - Initial Review and Basic4Android Library

Hey ya all... I've just posted the Basic4Android library for StartApp (this is a referral link). You can get the B4A library here . StartApp is an icon ad network, and they pay on a per-installation basis. StartApp Registration - Get $25 Register for StartApp with my referral link  (click it, I know you want to!), and once your download hits 100 new installs, you'll get a bonus of $25 into your account, and yes, I'll get some bonus too. StartApp First Days Review Well, it looks pretty impressive. An app of mine, more popular in the US had about 157 downloads (users who opt-in for the icon ads) and made $2.51. While another app, with a more global distribution had 296 opt-ins and made $2.09 revenue. It looks like the performance of these opt-in based icon ads could match up to the notification ad format. Give it a go! Cheers! -Bill
