Welcome to another update to the iPhone and iPad app review sites listing in iOS development about three years ago, I made the first posting of the iPhone app review sites list, and it’s been over a year since the last update. Since I’ve recently seen a resurgence in traffic to the older lists about two weeks ago I decided to begin the long process of putting together a new list.
With the first list all but a handful of review sites barely had any traffic at all – things have definitely changed, and there are many review sites with enough traffic to significantly effect your bottom line.
The best way to use this list is to look for sites that have reviewed apps similar to yours. As far as the traffic rankings go sites with an Alexa rating higher than about 50,000 are getting a good amount of traffic, and there are many of them.
Sites higher than that, especially sites in the top 10k could make your app a sensation. The biggest sites typically don’t actively ask for apps to review so chances are they will need to find your app themselves. So this is where getting exposure on other review sites can help.
Sites in the 50-300k range are getting some traffic, but if they’re asking you to pay for reviews then I would avoid them. Sites lower than that are likely very specialized, new, or inactive, but any bit of publicity can make a difference and could lead to someone from a larger site writing about your app.

I’ve placed submission pages/contact e-mails wherever possible, otherwise I’ve posted contact info or in some cases nothing was found.
Here is the list ordered by Alexa ratings:
