iOS game advertisements in Mainstream Media

Hi there,

I am curious to know, are iOS games advertised in mainstream media channels such as primetime tv, newspapers, radio etc. in the US?

I live in Asia, so no such thing here, but I'd like to know whether devs spend extra on ad expenditure to reach a broarder audience.

Thanks!

The only developers with that kind of clout would be Rovio. I can't really think of anyone else...

I know they've made a few tv-ready ads, one including people from NASA even, but I don't know of they were actually aired on TV.

Spacetime studios had one of their games in a verizon ad on tv once.

Yes, they had an advertisement for Pocket Legends... The ad was pretty weird though...
