List of 8 iOS App Announcement Sites

Apart from press releases and reviews, posting to forums for announcing apps could add extra publicity. Even though page views may not be great and times staying on the boards are not long, any extra publicity is worth a shot

So, here it goes the list (without any sorting preference):
http://www.iphoneforums.net/forum/iphone-app-announcements-21/
http://forums.macrumors.com/forumdisplay.php?f=133
http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/iphone-apps-games/
http://www.iphonedevsdk.com/forum/shameless-advertising/
http://forum.148apps.com/forumdisplay.php?f=63
http://www.everythingicafe.com/forum/forums/iphone-app-announcements.69/
http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-app-announcements/
http://iphoneappspoint.com/forumdisplay.php?2-iPhone-Apps

Some of the forums provide sub-forums for both iPhone apps and iPad Apps, but cross-posting is disallowed. You need to pick one that most suits you. Most of the forums allows inserting images while some disallow it. Some allows you to post links only if you have accumulated enough posts

Most of the time, you can reuse the code of the post. Just draft one that you are satisfied with the preview, then copy and save the code for other posts

How Did It All Started?

So, this is my first post. Boring stuff but I want to talk about why I started all these

All these started one and half a year ago as I wanted to give a surprise to my girlfriend. And yes, I did come up with a freaking idea to write an app as her birthday present

So, how did the app link to any meaningful representation worth a present? It’s actually a match-3 game. Like the famous Bejeweled, you swap tiles to make 3 of a kind in a row. What’s so special is that you can customize the tiles so that you can put a photo on each of the tiles, so does the background. Together these will remember us the precious people, moments and places

However, I underestimated the project as most starters do. It turned out to be a one-year project (on and off) and as a birthday present it certainly was late for one year too. Although I am still not satisfied with the game, I did learn a lot from it in the hard way. And I would like to ever polish this gift in my lifetime

Finally, I would like to close it by saying that I enjoy the stuff. Without being enjoyed from within, it was very difficult to keep working on the stuff on a regular basis. And I would like to keep doing what I enjoy. Biggest thanks to my girlfriend, Fish, for making my life more meaningful
