Maybe rethink your icon. Remember that's what the customer first sees. Your's looks a bit like an application more than a game, maybe that's confusing players that might click on it and read more.

Don't expected your friends to just play your game and earn you money. Because even if they will, they can't do it every day, you cannot builf retention by begging friends or others to play your game. Create a good game, focus on icon and description, make some ASO, and the downloads will come.
Also spread into different store, iOS AppleStore it's a must if you want to get any money with apps. If you only do it for fun, then you can continue this way. [tongue]

Without meaning to be rude, I feel the quality of the game could be improved. The game doesn't really look polished or exciting from the screenshots. The icon makes me think that it might be for an application not a game.

If you're launching apps for fun or to learn about game development then that's cool. But if you want to make money from an app then I think you need to improve the quality, as it's much easier to market an app that looks good.

And why did you put the screenshots in that black box? WTF? I don't wanna be rude but you can't just throw some images on the store and expect to get rich over night or something. Game development is hard work i do it for the last 5 Months every day over 10h/day and I'm not rich i just started to make some money in the last 10days cos i  managed to upload my games to the AppStore.
Now i see the difference if you wanna make money you need to invest something in it not just hard work!

Cheers and good luck with your games!

Inkscape is fine for that.
Check out this guy's tutorials, they're pretty much perfect for learning ingame art:

You can, I built my own hackintosh using this guide: http://www.tonymacx86.com/  It's not exactly easy though, unless your pretty experienced at building your own computers. But you can get better hardware for 1/2 the price if you buy your own components. Also Yosemite is a free download, so you get OSX for free. You will need access to a mac (maybe a friend has one), to download Yosemite though, it's only available on the App Store.
