Besides simple reviews, there will be news about weekly app updates (including changelog), android wear app reviews, mock designs for app redesigns etc.
We were a larger team, but I went inactive for few months due to preparations for my marriage and honeymoon. In that period, some of them left, and now there are five of us still willing to work on this project.
All authors are allowed to put up to two adsense units in their reviews, and there will be no other ads on those reviews. Other ways of site monetization would be paying for review positioning on website (the three reviews at the top, and the wide one, currently Dashclock). In other words, visitors wouldn’t be spammed with ads. I will help out authors without Adsense account to get one, and those that have it ready can immediately add their ads.
Now I’m not a web programmer at all, I’m just pretty familiar with WordPress. I bought a theme on Themeforest, set it up and paid a designer for a logo. The theme itself is pretty good and has all the features a standard review website would need. However, there are some things I’d like to get implemented/changed, so I requested those from the developer. If the site gets fairly popular, I might hire someone to build a custom theme for the website, or build the site on a different framework.
What we need mostly is authors. You don’t need to write x reviews per day, any number of reviews will work. You can write when you have time, without any pressure. We’d like to review every popular app out there, so a large number of authors are welcome. Other forms of support are more than welcome too, like designers, people running the social media accounts etc.
I still need to polish the website a bit, and we need to put average author ratings instead of single author rating. Game reviews and sections need an update too. The site is currently in beta, until we finish those things.
