I’ve received several questions about available cross-promotion tools and services available for iOS apps.
There are many, and new startups promising to help with app cross-promotion seem to pop up on an almost daily basis.
Often these new services end up never becoming more than an e-mail submit page so in this article I’ll stick just with the active services.
Services For Games
There are a number of very active services just for game cross promotion.
The OpenFeint social networking service provides a number of ways to promote games utilizing their service, and recently added GameFeed which looks like a very slick, easy solution for in game cross promotion.
PlayHaven has been used in a number of high-download games, and provides a proven working solution for in-game cross promotion.
Applifier is a solution that is fairly new to iOS, but has been extremely successful for Facebook games.
Services Not Just For Games
Install Wall looks like a good solution for those looking to cross promote all types of apps.
PhotoAppLink is a great looking open source library for those looking to cross promote photo applications.
You may want to post on the iPhone Dev SDK promotion techniques forum if you are looking for other developers looking for cross-promotion opportunities here.
If you know of any other operational cross promotion services or libraries feel free to mention then in the comments.
