Default Anyone knows about work with Chillingo?

Right now I am considering to work with Chillingo to promote my app. Anyone knows the revenue sharing of Chillingo? And...If Chillingo publish my app, can I take the right back to publish the game?

do you have any suggestions about working with Chillingo? Thanks!

On my side, if you really believe to your content, do publish it yourself and take your lesson, it will help you with future moves on other games, or if your game is so great, I bet you will be happy because you won't need to share revenue and experience for someone else but you.
thanks, i'm still gonna choose Chillingo although I am confidence of my game, they have much stronger PR xps than me. I have no idea how to publish efficiently.

I hope this is Chillingo paying for most of the dev cost right? If not, I hope you guys are getting a BIG advance for that otherwise, you are fool to give away so much for nothing. Make sure that their PR will be more than just sending a press release and a newsletter.

Bullet Skater was at one point signed to Chillingo. The terms vary from deal to deal.

I see no problem with signing a long term contract for a particular game. I don't think a publisher would want to waste their time with it otherwise. Although there should be opt-out clauses for minimum income, etc.
