Goodbyes, Hellos, the Ring, the Bar and Easter Eggs!
Hello folks! Been a while since I wrote some stuff here. Tough making time at times :D Thanks for all your visits and support, this blog has passed 10k page views, and often hitting more than 200 pageviews on a daily basis! Thanks again for the support!
Hows your revenue been? Glad that Leadbolt's revenue is now back to normal after the hiccup recently.
LeadboltAnd speaking of Leadbolt, my Account Manager, Brian Tippy (and I believe many of yours too) is leaving Leadbolt to focus on his own startup (http://www.artzbridge.com). I hope his replacement would be a cool as him though! All the best Brian! And hello Florence!
SellARingSellARing might be something you'd wanna listen in your phone now. They have drastically reduced the permissions for their SDK (version 0.2.3 if I am not mistaken). Here is the thing that you MUST know before you explore sellAring. Their major revenue sources is from the US (long live the grand ole US of A!). So keep that in mind if you're planning to give them a go. I do hope they get some ads for Europe soon too.
Play StoreGoogle looks like is paying a hell of a lot more focus on the Android . Go to any page that has the Google navigation bar at the top, you will see the link to Play (with the word NEW) on it. This is really bringing the Play Store to the masses / mainstream. It would really be awesome if we could sell our own ebooks and podcasts on it too.
EasterAnd for Easter, I'd like to highlight ZeroSoft's Easter Egg breaking game which he released very recently. Give it a go!
Here is a little review (from the prespective of this blog of course): A very attractive icon and the app itself looks very nice (and quite fun to play, similar to the Whip It! app in a way), but I wonder why he/she did not make the most of advertising on this one. The offerwall on exit screen says the option is not available in my country (a typical thing with Leadbolt), but yeah, if his/her downloads are mainly US based, then the app is gonna be awesome. There could also been an ad banner in the app itself. But that is the developer's choice of course. A fun little app, give it a go.
Till the next post...
