News and Reviews
We're always on the lookout for all the latest and breaking news in the iOS and mobile gaming scene for AppSpy, so if you have a useful bit of news you think we should publish, don't hesitate to let us know. From publishers to developers, PR, and even our very own readers, we'd love to hear from you if you have something that will interest our audience.
Below is a list of emails you can use to get in touch, along with direct emails if you need to pass information onto a team member.
AppSpy currently specializes in iOS (iPhone/iPad) content, and mobile/smartphone platforms in general. If there's any general gaming news big enough for us to cover, we'll gladly look into it as well.
(Please note that emails to one member of the team may be shared with other members of the team. No emails will be shared with outside parties.)
And please bear in mind that we get hundreds of emails a day. It's just not possible to reply to all of them, but we do our very best.
General advice for PR
If you're looking for coverage, the most important thing is to make an interesting game. Assuming you've got that covered, you can improve your chances of being noticed by following the steps below when you email us.
- Make sure you include trailers, screenshots, and relevant information.
- Send us promo codes BEFORE your game goes live on the App Store. Don't worry - we won't publish reviews until the day the game goes live in the US. It just helps us to get our reviews ready for launch days.
- If AppSpy or one of our beloved rivals (or compatriots!) has already covered one of your games it's a good idea to remind us and include a link to the story.
- Don't be afraid to name drop and tell us about any significant industry experience. If your best friend and mentor is Shigeru Miyamoto or you worked on Big Console Game X, that could be what makes your email stand out from the dozens of others we get on a given day.
- Write an interesting email. It sounds obvious, but no matter how good your game is if you send us an email ignoring all of the above advice there's a very good chance we'll miss it.
And it doesn't end with the story. If we said something nice about your game or gave it an award at review, feel free to quote us, and get in touch if you want a copy of the award graphic to use on your site or promotional materials.
