Weekly Sponsorships Now Available

We’re constantly striving to make AppStorm the go-to place for discovering high quality Mac software, and I really value the time you dedicate to reading what we have to say. It means a lot! For this reason, if we haven’t extensively tried and tested a piece of software, it’s unlikely to be featured on the site.

Although Quick Look has been a great way for developers to get the word out about their apps on AppStorm, it’s difficult to write about – and recommend – a piece of software that we aren’t completely familiar with.

For this reason, we’re phasing out Quick Look, and introducing a new way for developers to share their latest and greatest apps with you. Weekly Sponsorships will involve one extra post per week, highlighting a particular developer or application that we personally recommend.

We’re setting a really high standard for the sponsors we accept on AppStorm, and will only be recommending software that we’re tried, tested, and use ourselves on a regular basis!

I hope this will give you a chance to find out about great new software that you haven’t come across before, while at the same time maintaining the high quality of coverage you’ve come to expect from AppStorm.

If you’re a developer and would like to find out more, you can read all about Weekly Sponsorships here. We’re launching this service on Mac.AppStorm next week, with Web.AppStorm and iPhone.AppStorm to follow shortly.

  • I thought the whole point of Quick Look was to get a first impressions sort of look at an app before you could actually do a full on review and decide wether to recommend it or not. What’s the point of a review site if you’re going to recommend everything you actually review? :P
    If I were paying for a Quick Look post for my app I’d want you to be totally honest about what you thought of it.

    • Absolutely – Quick Look was a good way for developers to get a good first impression about their app.

      But the problem is that we still had to have a measure of quality control, and many of the apps we were asked to feature simply weren’t of a high enough standard to be worthy of our reader’s attention.

      Sponsorship will make sure we only feature applications that we really believe are a great solution to a problem, and will be of utmost value to AppStorm readers.

      All developers still have the ability to request a review of their app as normal, and I take a look at every submission we receive!

  • While you’re on the subject of sponsorship, have you consider replacing the eyesore that is ad setup on the the left ? I don’t block ads from the Deck Network, Fusion Network or Ads by Carbon. The ad designs are not bad but they should be shown in succession. For information on this reasoning read the paradox of choice.
