Being game developers ourselves, we know how hard it is to get users to pay for a game they've never heard of. It's even harder with more than 50 percent of Android apps being free, causing many users to basically ignore high quality games that have a download fee. With our new Android App of the Day program, developers can offer their apps at a discounted price, or even free for a day, allowing them to gain traction with users and get word-of-mouth exposure.
