Welcome to the updated listing of iPhone and iPad app review sites listing in iOS development that was first posted over four years ago and has been updated many times since. The list has grown since the last update and includes sites that post reviews for both iPhone and iPad apps.
Updated August 27th/2014
This list is posted sorted by Alexa traffic rankings and have been checked to ensure each of the pages are working. I have included those sites that were working, and were posted in the comments, and many that were sent in feedback (sorry if your site was missed, but feedback is often missed). If you’d like to add your site please post it in the comments.
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:
Thanks for reading, please Tweet, Plus One and bookmark this post!
If you find anything incorrect or want me to add your site to the list please post a comment. If sent as feedback your site will likely not get posted as it will be filtered along with the many app review requests that this site receives (we’re not an app review site unless you’ve got something for developers). Thank you.

Touch Volume is getting on up there too
there is so many now.
This is a great list. Was just about to start searching every app review site when your blog popped up top of the search results. Great place for me to start, thanks for taking the time to compile it.
Thanks so much for taking the time to put together this list, as a budding developer this is greatly helpful. Much appreciation from the Frisdinga App team in Australia!
Thanks so much for the list!
The time of this is perfect! There’s nothing quite as frustrating as pouring your heart and soul into an app and then wonder if anyone will ever find it. Thanks for the list!
Wow this is a great resource! Thanks so much for sharing!
Great list! It seems like the Alexa rankings are a bit out of date now. Interesting to see how much some of them have changed though, especially for some of the kids app review sites. When were the rankings generated?
Just what I need – gonna save a lot of time. It’s a big help for a struggling developer, thanks
nice list. would help me if i would be a developer ^^
Thanks for including us on your list. We’re happy to report that you bring us traffic every single day! We appreciate all the referrals!
P.S. We were a brand new site when you updated this list and we were only at 580K (a big accomplishment for us since we were only a few months old). With a lot of hardwork and support from developers we’ve climbed up the rankings. Fast forward to today and we now find ourselves sitting at the 150k(ish) mark! Not bad for our first year!
Extremely helpful list – thanks very much for putting it together.
This is a great article! Do you have or know of anything like this for Android apps?
Please add http://www.cultofmac.com/
It is very popular website for Mac/iPhone/iPad users, and they review apps.
Add also macworld.com

I am the admin of RightNowInTech.com and I recently started taking in apps for review. Can I be included in here, by any chance?
Absolutelly, I will include you in the next update.
This list is extraordinarily helpful. Thanks for taking the time to put it together.
Hi, I am one of The iMums – we are four mums from around the globe who review apps. Our site is http://www.theimums.com . We mainly focus on children’s apps (including those for children with Special Needs), but also include some we think mums and dads would enjoy too. We’d love to be added to your list.
Thanks for this useful list… I would like to have my site in the list soon but it will take a lot of time as its just started 🙂
Cheers and thanks for the info 😀
The App Informer is listed as expired when you go to their web site
Can you please add http://www.thecentralappreview.com/ to the list? Thanks
Awesome list.. Take a look at http://www.apppalyse.com, I was inspired to create my own app review website, for iphone and android. Let me know what you think. And if you can add appalyse to the list I would be honoured
