    Hello,
    I'm here to ask for help, I'm a 15 year old iPhone developer, and I have released my first application not long ago.
    I'm not very experienced and so I would like to ask for your help oh jedi masters - help, tips and tricks, how to publish my app the better way (all for free of course, I can't spend money on ads). I mean I want to increase sales - as for now, not being so good about 3 - 10 sales per day.
    The app is original, the idea is alike other apps, but my app has other features. My app works differently then all other look alike.
    The app is basically for everyones use - it's used to fool people, ClickMe!.
    If you need anymore info, tell me in this thread!
    Thanks for you reply, more are welcome!!
    Any help and any reply is greatly appreciated!!!
    Thanks in advance!!

    1. Make it free
    --2A. If a lot of people download it and rate it up make it 99 cents
    --2B. If not a lot of people download and rate it bad then your app is fail and you should leave it free and improve it on user feedback or just plain start another app.

    Hmm that's interesting, are you sure this is a good method, I'm afraid that it will be snatched as a free app but it will die as a paid one...
    More replies please.

    maybe give a promo code to some app reviewers like TheIpodKid and ask him to review it. a lot of people see it and try it.

    Make a lite version so people can try it for free

    post demos on youtube

    Just some tips

    Try using ad mob.

    They pay for the ads to show up. Also there is a new program which elts you place ads for someones application and you can place your ads on someone else's application.

    Hmm interesting... I do not know about the ad mob idea, but posting demos on youtube and giving a few promo codes looks like the right thing to do.
    Who is TheIpodKid?? could you link me up?

    You should have made it free when you published it so it could get popular enough and then sell it for .99 cents. Too late now though... or not.

    If I just give out like 15-25 promo codes, it would give some popularity if the takers would review the app, would not it?
    It would not really help if I make it free now because it is in page 5-6 in release date.
    Hmmm... more ideas please!
