My words of wisdom to mobile app developers:

Technorati’s Byron Gordon added, “Give plenty of time to review your app before it goes live, at minimum a month.”

Gordon added, “Promote the idea as opposed to the app. How is your app standing out from the rest? What larger trends is your app capitalizing on? What do you know about your audience? Are they hardcore, midcore, what other specific criteria can you specify? Will they finish the actual story to your game or will they quit half way through because they become bored or frustrated? How do you keep them engaged?”
