Would you be willing to do this?

Hi! I was thinking of doing a promotion for apps and games similar to freeappaday, but completely free for devs to enter their app(s). I'm sure this would be great advertising for many apps that aren't widely known. Would you be willing to submit your app if I did this?

True, but all developers should have a chance to advertise their app, not just the one's who have enough money to do it.

I agree with this. Im a individual developer btw. And advertising is becoming harder and harder these days, as big sites are very selective and mostly just want you to pay for advertisement. I lost my daily job, so paying for advertisement is out of the question. And furthermore, not making enough to put food on the table either.

Well, you'd have to register a domain and get a fair bit of advertising to let people know about it..But if you're willing to do that then yea it could potentially be good.

Maybe a cooperative of several indie devs could partner to defray costs of running the site. The same group could seek or evaluate worthwhile apps.
Meanwhile, banner ads on the site would seem fairly innocuous as a form of support. People hardly pay notice to them, and you could add a disclaimer that the banner doesn't represent an endorsement. Google AdWords are even less obtrusive as a form of support.
You could essentially run it as a blog. That route could even allow user comments or ratings if you wanted.
I say run with it.
