New App Marketing Strategy: Stock Market Pricing!

The stock market is a strange beast.  In life, people typically want to wait for things to go on sale before buying them.  But with stocks, people like to buy them only after they increase in price!  So let’s try the same thing with apps and see what happens.

On the 6th of each month, Super Sevens and Super Hearts: Double Deck Cancellation Chaos will go up in price by $1.00.  They currently cost $2.99.  On May 6th, they will go up to $3.99.  On October 6th, they’ll max out at their final price of $8.99 before being taken off the market for good on November 4th.

However, unlike the stock market, there will be no crashes in price.  No freebies.  No deals.  So if you want to save, don’t delay!  Otherwise, you’ll have to pay a little more for your limited edition collector’s item.  (Seriously, you could be one of like only five people to have these apps on your devices!  Act now!)

Super Sevens on Amazon: Last Chance for Discount

Super Sevens for Android qualified for the Amazon Developer Select program earlier this year. If you purchase this app on Amazon, they give you 60 Amazon Coins in return. Thus, in effect, it’s like the app is 30% off.

However, Tuesday (March 31st, 2015) is the LAST day this promotion will run.

So if you want to get a deal on Super Sevens for Android, act before Wednesday!

When asked why Simple Sevens for Android was taken down by its iOS brother in a heated matchup, S.S. Android replied, “I just couldn’t handle that new Super Button.  Too much, too cool.  He deserved to beat me.  There’s no shame in second place.  What?  Tenth?  Are you sure?”

Simple Sevens for iOS refused to answer any questions.  He spent the whole interview pushing his Super Button while talking smack about his Android brother.  Though when prodded about only coming in 9th, he admitted his Super Button just couldn’t compare to all the features of Super Sevens.

When it was not-so-subtly implied that Super Sevens for iOS was occupying a whole lot of spots on the charts due to some recent weight gain, Super Sevens for iOS responded, “Hey, man, I recently shrunk my file size.  And it’s not like I ever see you at the gym, Phil.”

Best Card Game Apps of 2013, Hidden Gems

You have to dig pretty deep to find some of the best games.  Just how hidden were these gems back in 2013?  They were so hidden they didn’t even exist!  But if they didn’t exist back in 2013, how did they make it onto a “Top Card Games for 2013” list?  The only possible explanation is that the AI in the game is so smart that it created a time machine to go back in time and promote itself!  Wow!  Amazing!

Maybe “The Merciless” AI should change its name to “The Master of Space and Time”?  If you couldn’t beat it in 2013, just think how much smarter it is in 2015!

Back in 2013, Simple Sevens recently just added a new “Super Button” the other day.  (Uh… this time warp stuff is getting very confusing…)  Anyways, try out the new button to sample some of the cool features of Super Sevens!

Super Sevens for iOS Update – Version 1.2

The latest version of Super Sevens for iOS just got posted to the store.  Nothing too major in this update;  I better optimized the background graphics so that the app file size is smaller and takes up less space.

Top Card Game Apps of 2015

Even though it’s early in the year, it’s safe to assume that the two apps listed below will be topping the charts for Best Card Game Apps of 2015.  Both apps are developed by ThumbSnail Studios, and both are available for iOS and Android.  Enjoy!

Super Sevens was the underdog smash hit of the year.  With so many different game types and options, it comes quite close to legally being able to declare that it is endless fun.

Simple Sevens is the free “lite” version of the above game.  While not as action-packed as its brother Super Sevens, it’s nice to be able to try out the controls and confirm for yourself that it indeed plays smoothly.

Make Money as a New App Developer – Use Bing

If you’re a new app developer, you’re going to be searching the web a lot.  And if you’re new to the world of computer programming, you’re really going to be searching the web a lot.  And if you happen to be using a framework that doesn’t always have the greatest of documentation (like, say, Cocos2d-x…), then, oh my goodness, you are going to be searching the web A LOT!!!

Plus, in your daily life, I imagine you search on the web for other things anyways.  Since you’re already doing so much of it, why not get paid to do it?  I present to you the search engine:  Bing.

All you have to do is sign up for a Bing Rewards Account and use Bing.com as your search engine.  For each search you make, you get Bing credits.  After you amass enough credits, you can redeem them for Bing Rewards, many of which are gift cards (or, in other words, actual money!).

What’s that?  You don’t like Bing?  You think another search engine works better?  Does that other search engine pay you?  No, Google doesn’t pay you.  Thus, the choice is clear:  use Bing.

As shown previously, you will make absolutely no money off of your app.  Therefore, using Bing might be your only chance to gain a little cash from all of your hard work.  Only by using Bing will you be able to declare, without lying, “Yes, I get paid to make games.”

Here are some pro tips to maximize your Bing Rewards:

-There are three levels:  bronze, silver, and gold.  Before getting your first gift card, work your way up to the Gold Level so that you can redeem rewards at a discount.

-To get to the Gold Level, you have to redeem at least one reward.  However, Bing often has some kind of sweepstakes entry as a reward for a minimal amount of rewards points (say, 3 to 5 points, or, if you’re really lucky, free).  These count (or at least they did for me last year) towards the requirement of redeeming an award to get to gold status.  You won’t win the sweepstakes, but it will get you to discounted rewards faster.

Now, before you race off to get your bling from Bing, I have just one last piece of advice:  use your rewards to get a $5 Amazon gift card and remember who told you this life-changing advice:
