Btw, just wondering. Are you using ads from MS Ads SDK? How are the results, do you see any good eCPM?
Well, CNN Mobile was what I wanted when I first got it so thats what i started with. NewsPaper 7 is what ended up being kind of a mix of ideas and I did not want to flood the market w/ 1.29 or .99 apps. So I created one I could price at 2.99 then drop to 1.99..1.29...then .99 once my sales went up. The NewsPaper7 app started as an idea one morning and was done that night, the results are very pleasing and what I'm actually using on my phone. I am considering cross platforming this app into the blackberry tablet however I need to look more into that SDK prior to launch.
Yes the ads are from the MS SDK, if you do financial ads like I have the eCPM is averaging between 60-200$ per 1000. It seems the more ads you display the more it goes down. So I am still trying to tweak the right combination.
My CNN App is suppose to have the bug fixes and the back hardware button work correctly, the update is accepted its just Microsoft has declined every version # in between. And since the two apps were developed side by side the version number once it hits the marketplace jumps from 1.0 to 1.4.
