Online Resources for App Research and Marketing
Throughout the app planning, development, and marketing stages, I highly recommend exploring all of the wonderful iOS-related app directories, news, and review sites available online when performing competitive research and acquiring press coverage for your app.
With new sites springing up all the time, this may not represent an exhaustive list of online resources, but with more than 90 links, this collection should serve as a good starting point.
As a reminder, some app review sites may charge a fee to write an app review or to guarantee an expedited review. Tread carefully, and always read a site's app review policy before submitting your app for consideration
