We successfully uploaded the new version to Amazon with the proper sizes for the screenshots. Now we wait for the final approval from the Developers Select Program. Presently we are PENDING.
With building complete, we are now gearing for promotion. Fingers crossed we make good headway. The 3rd promo animation is nearly complete. Music, CHECK. Sound Effects, CHECK. All we need is the voiceover. Too bad I kind of suck at this, but to my credit it is WAY harder than it seems. I’m still in awe at how effortlessly Robert Krulwich read the Space Nicks script cold when we were recording the narration. It truly is a gift. Still, I’ll give it a shot and maybe try a pass with the kids helping out. That could be interesting.
The downside of promotion is I had to ask Amazon Support another question….
Oh Amazon Support, are you paid by the quality of your vague answers?
With Apple’s Developers Program they give app developers 50 promo codes for each of their apps to distribute to reviewers, potential clients or friends. I emailed Amazon Support with my simple question. ‘Do you supply promo codes like Apple to give away to…etc, etc and if so where is the link?’
Their response: Thank you for writing in. Please go to the Amazon Gift Cards page at http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000619631 to purchase a gift card to send to your customers or reviewers.
Now this is an answer, but does it answer my question, ‘Do you supply promo codes like Apple?
How hard would it be for them to you say. ‘No, we do NOT supply our app developers with any free codes. All codes must be purchased.’
So do I write them AGAIN to ask them to clarify their answer? I mean, I still really don’t know i they give us promo codes. They didn’t answer that.
Okay…… breathe. Good.
Putting everything in perspective. We have a delightful storybook app that looks gorgeous and it is now up on both the iTunes Store and Amazon’s Appstore. Google Play…. I’m looking at you next!
