One of the well-known avenues your app can take to the top of the app store sales charts is through reviews of it posted on popular app review sites. The more traffic the review site receives, the larger audience that review will have and consequently the more people who will download your app.
Furthermore, getting reviewed by a highly-ranked app review site yields very important SEO benefits to your app’s website. With links coming from popular app review websites, it can give your app’s website a nice boost in the search rankings.
With so many sites out there, it can be difficult to know which ones to target for app reviews. In this post, we want to look at some of the best review sites for mobile apps in 2021.
As one of the most popular technology sites, TechCrunch is one of the best places to look for app reviews. The site covers the tech industry in general, not only reviewing apps, but also covering business news and reviewing gadgets. If you can get your app reviewed by TechCrunch, it is sure to raise your profile and any links back to your site will have a noticeable effect.
This site focuses on reviews for iOS apps. It offers a great visual presentation in the reviews and covers all the important points a potential user might want to know. It is also very easy to search and it publishes lists for things like top apps of the week and categories to help users find apps that can serve different purposes. If you are looking to catch the attention of iOS users, this can be one of the best places to submit your app for a review.
CNET is another general technology website that covers everything from apps and gadgets to the latest tech news and smart home technology. The app reviews are thorough and easy to follow, so as long as the review is positive, it can sell a lot of users on downloading your app. With that said, this review site covers most of the top apps, so your app will need to stand out alongside the competition.
Along with being a major tech website, Mashable also covers science, health, culture and more. The site primarily focuses on tech news, but they also have app reviews. As a large site people go to for the latest tech news and reviews, Mashable can make a big difference for increasing awareness of your app. Just like the other large tech sites, your app will need to be exceptional if it is going to get featured on this app review site.
This website covers the mobile app industry. Along with app reviews, it has industry news and reports. They also create blog posts and lists of the top apps in different categories. The app reviews on this site are in-depth and they give each app a score. Along with that, they break down the features and give a list of what they like and what they don’t. With a strong readership, a review on MobileAppDaily could take your app to the next level.
Unlike the other sites on this list, Product Hunt does not review apps. This is a site that is designed to help people share and find apps. However, there are features that allow users to vote on their favorite apps and leave comments and reviews. As long as your app is a hit with the community on the platform, it can be a big difference-maker for driving new installs.
