Get more screenshots. Use every slot available to share screenshots of the game. No reason *EVER* to just have on screenshot on the app store.

Thanks....That I'll do today...actually I have 5 screen shots uploaded for 360x480 sizes before...I need to upload them for the IPhone 5 sizes. I tried to fix defects which earlier users complained about...The users will directly compare (rightly so) this game with Doodle Jump which is a $15 million product.....So really tough job to get even a 1% of their market share....I thought if people like one game they would probably be interested to play similar game with a different flavor if quality is good...But really understood later on that it's really tough job to make such a game particularly when you work in your spare time....

Default Promote your app successfully

As a game developer you should submit your app in quality review sites in order to get your app reviewed.

Create your press kit so that it make easier for app reviewers to do their jobs.

Submit your press release for PR websites, so that your release is distributed towards a wide range of media outlets.

Make sure whether your iTunes App store page is more attractive in order to achieve more downloads.

promo codes is a famous marketing technique for app developers, with 69% of respondents sending out using this.

Make Trailers, previews and sneak-peak videos which makes customers excited.

hi,

you surely should add more screenshots (be careful with that red and white font). Other than that:

- google the most popular forums to announce your game there and encourage communication. less popular forums will also work for indexation
- find a list of reviewers (it is freely available online) and pitch them. Do not copy-pase: each request should be personal. Keep it short and simple.
- work with FB/Pinterest fan pages
- try to approach mommy blogger community for reviews since they are your target audience
- be sure that you have taken care of ASO - listen to a few podcasts, read articles freely available online
- check out other popular app`s press releases, write your own and use a free pr site to spread it.

It is not easy to run it all alone, good luck!

Default Screenshot update.....

Thanks. Just realized Apple has stopped allowing screenshot updates...So I need to submit a new binary.
https://developer.apple.com/news/index.php?id=1092013a

One more question, if your app becomes no. one in any country should you spend money to advertise in that country then?
One of my free app became no. one in Australia and Newzeland among all free apps in App store and I was earning $400 per day then. But I didn't spend money on Ads. Is that a mistake?

I would spend money to prolong its No. 1 position.

Suggest you contact different app review sites. Maniacdev has compiled 170+ sites here: http://maniacdev.com/2012/05/ios-app-review-sites/

Make sure to pitch your app nicely to get noticed.

Hope it helps!
