While on reddit I came across a site call smoothreviews.com. You basically sign up, go to the website on a mobile device and download, play, then review a app. It'll earn you one point which is then spent on someone else reviewing one of your apps. I've used it a bit and most people give 4-5 stars and a well written review. Thought I would let you guys know about this as its only about 2 months old.

Hey Salus, I tried it out and reviewed about 5 apps but noticed no one had reviewed any of my apps. How many apps did you review before they started giving you reviews?

I find it normally takes 12 hours or so before someone reviews your app. As you can see there was a good few hours before my apps where reviewed

I assume you can review some apps before having a game released in order to get some points? And then after releasing it get the reviews for it for the points you got earlier?

this looks interesting. I'll check it out.

Has anyone been doing review exchanges for the amazon app store? I've been trying to get a good thread / group of developers around that but it's been quite hard.

getting review exchanges for google / iphone though is pretty easy though.

I think this site is still in beta or just was released. I read they are planning on adding support for the amazon appstore pretty soon once they get more users.

I didn't see a rise in downloads due to them taking so long to review - around 1 review/2 days. Also you are not guaranteed a 5 star review and most of the time it is a 3 star review. I would recommend using a review swapping forum like the one on this forum or a bigger one such as makingmoneywithandroid. They have a lot of users but it is based upon a trust system unlike smoothreviews. Good luck.
