Media App Summit Dispatches

Our Media App Summit opened today in New York City, bringing together experts from every corner of the mobile publishing space. To help you sift through all the resources, we’ve collected all our blogs’ coverage in a single post.

Here’s some advice for how to get your literary app discovered: “Build Relationships. Get to know your reps at all of the app stores that you are working with, be it Apple, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google and so on. These guys can help you curate, merchandize and promote your apps. Think long term about these relationships. If they don’t pick up one particular app to feature, they may pick up another down the road if you continue to foster your relationship”
