The market of mobile apps is considered to exceed 6 Million apps on the App Store and Google Play. In such a crowded marketplace, it's crucial to stand out from the competitors, find your Unique Selling Point, and invest your time and money in app promotion. To help game developers navigate their app promotion and user acquisition, we have created a guide to the best PR sources for mobile game developers. This is a list of the online media, communities, and related websites which a developer can apply for a publication, review, or link.
