Ultimate List of Free iPhone App Review Sites

By Oliver Stockley • Developer Resources, Resources • 28 Sep 2011


SCROLL DOWN FOR LIST

I’m hoping to add the following features to this list in future updates:

  • categorise sites so that it’s easy to find more specialist sites
  • add other promotional sites (app giveaway sites etc)
  • add links to marketing tips/suggestions/forums/helpful resources
  • add contents/pagination to the list

If you can think of anything else I that might be wise to add, or any sites or resources that I could list, please let me know!

Here’s an enormous list of iPhone App Review sites that app developers can submit their apps to for the low price of free. I hope the list is useful to every developer that comes across it. If you do find it useful, it’d be great if you could link other developers to it so that they can benefit from it too! As a little bonus, I’ve added a special ‘kids app review sites’ section to the bottom of the list, ideal for developers that have made apps aimed at children. I’ll try to add more sections like this in the future.

Clicking on the title of a website in the list will take you straight to the contact page for the site. I’ve included any necessary contact details so that you can easily access the app submission details for a whole load of sites without having to visit each one individually. The sites are ordered according to their Alexa ranking – the lower the ranking, the higher the site is on the list. Before you submit your app to any sites, I recommend that you read this article from Mobile Orchard.

If you have any suggestions for the list, please add them to the comments!

(Note: A less up to date version of this list can be found on Squidoo.com)

    Hello,

    Recently, Enoda have implemented a new review submission system, which I would like every submission to be using (it makes my life a lot easier). 

    If you could, it would be good if you could replace the email for Enoda (hello@enoda.a.co.uk) with the following URL: http://enoda.co.uk/submit-apps/ Plus, our Alexa ranking has gone down a bit too ;-)
