so I'd make sure u either have a good conversion rate
or u have a hook to draw more than 350,000 downloads
before u book FreeAppADay
Well - yes technically you're right, but the advantage of a FAAD service is adding to your word of mouth so you're game sells more copies after it's paid again.
After our first FAAD, we saw 10 times the sales over what we had before which lasted about a week. After that week, we saw sales roughly doubled... good but not great.

Most of the other FAAD-alikes were quoting me similar prices, but were more honest about their download potential saying something along the lines of "We've seen 2 million but on average we see 100,000". We ended up with FAAD because of the higher potential ceiling. Was the choice right or wrong? I have no idea. We may promote another app with another service one day, but the FAAD(and the like) promoting days for Pickpawcket are done.
