AppTurbo is the company behind the app ‘App of the Day’. The idea of ‘App of the Day’ is to make one app available for free to their users each day. On Android this works either by giving away promotion codes or by unlocking pro features for free which usually are unlocked via In-App Purchases on the day of promotion.
‘App of the Day’ is a win win for users and app developers. Users get their free app each day and developers get a lot of exposure for their app on the day of promotion.
About a month ago I was asked by AppTurbo if I would like to have ‘Scribble Racer’ promoted for one day within their app. I thought, why not? So I prepared my game and on March 8th there was the big day for Scribble Racer.
Today (three days after the promotion) I want to write about my experience with AppTurbo and give you some insights what impact the ‘App of the Day’ promotion had on Scribble Racer:
Hi folks! There’s a fresh new update of Scribble Racer out now! It comes with 41 challenging achievements and some fun gadgets like the ‘Offroad’ or the ‘Magnet’ gadgets shown in the images below. Hope you enjoy it!
One year ago I wrote the first posting on my blog. I had two apps (actually one… paid and free version) in the Android Market (now Google Play) with a total of 2367 downloads. Today I have thirteen apps on Google Play (actually ten… paid and free) with more than 155,000 downloads. Assuming the same growth rate for the next year I should have 9,500,000 downloads next year (I hope I can refer to this one next year and can say “I was just joking but … ” 😉 )
For everyone with a Galaxy Note I released a new game. It’s called “Scribble Racer” and makes use of the S Pen.
The rules are quite easy: there’s a track and the pen must stay inside of this track while it’s scrolling down and getting faster with time. There are some fruits and stars to collect and a leaderboard to compare your score with other players around the world.
