As an iOS developer one of the best criteria to choose which of the existing iphone app review sites to contact to promote an app would be to know their monthly pageviews (number of pages viewed by the users each month). Since this data is not public, it’s common practice to use Alexa Rankings (even if Alexa results should be analysed with caution because of the methodology).

Such lists of iphone app review sites already exist a little everywhere, but they are published only once a year (for instance Johann Dowa in http://maniacdev.com/2012/05/ios-app-review-sites/) and since they look up manually for the alexa rankings, the real ranking can vary a lot between websites within just a few weeks.

That’s why I decided to create this list of iphone app review sites with dynamic daily update of the Alexa rankings and relative variations in rankings. You’ll find hereunder a picture of the head of pareto, as seen in November 2012. If you click on the picture (or this link: iPad and iPhone app review sites – The list to promote iOS apps with dynamic Alexa rankings) then you’ll access the list automatically updated each day (the date of the last update is written just above the table).

Here’s how I selected those iphone app review sites:

  • The should have a specific section/page dedicated to iphone app reviews or ipad app reviews that shouldn’t be hard to find from the homepage,
  • The should have a decent Alexa Ranking (for a generalist app review website it means way under 2 000 000),
  • There should be an easy/clear way for developers to submit their app for review,
  • The probability for indie developers to get their app reviewed should be significant (yes, it’s pretty subjective here !).

As long as other iphone app review sites comply with these rules, they can possibly be included in that list, whatever the language/country: please don’t hesitate to request that I add new websites by using the comments of this page. Since the blog has an anti-spam filter, don’t use the <A> symbols.

I hope my friends developers will find it useful!

  1. Hello, thanks for including Apps Playground on this list, it’s a great way for us to keep track of how we rank compared to other sites – and hopefully will help developers find us to submit apps.

    We’re actually based in the UK even though we have a dot.com domain name – should we have a Union Jack flag, or do you use the US flag for all English-language sites?

  2. One of the best sites I have found for finding the best apps is http://TheAppMagazine.com – They take free app review requests and also have featured app advertising for only $20. Being an app developer this is some of the best advertising I have been able to find. I thought it might be worth adding to the list.

  3. I’d love for you to consider adding my site, iPad Insight. It is single focused on the iPad, offers high quality iPad app reviews including many from indie and smaller developers, and has an Alex rank of 97,196.

  5. Thenewapp.org is a website dedicated to promoting apps that do not have a large following or are currently still in development. We review iPhone / iPad, Android, and Windows Mobile apps. You can submit an app for review here: http://thenewapp.org/submission-page/.

    We look forward to being added to your list.

    We love it when developers submit their apps to us. We fit the criteria with traffic, alexa rankings, and there is a strong chance we will review apps. The only exception is games… we do not review games at this time.
