Default [APP] CNN Mobile -[R]- 12/11/2010 -[U]- 1/14/2011 -[V]- 1.4.0.0

CNN Mobile
Hello everyone, I am looking for feedback on my apps I created. Here is my first app. Please comment here and if you enjoy it please leave feedback on the actual review for the marketplace. Price is .99 however I offer an fully function ad supported version as a trial. It only nags the first launch it ever does. The ads are removed after purchase. Please let me know. Also this app is under attack on the marketplace by competition you will notice the first 4 posts are all 1 and are by competition (I have verified this with microsoft however they will not remove them).



View CNN's Mobile website at the click of a finger. Clicking on the CNN Logo on the app itself will take you directly back to CNN. Using the arrow on the left will function as a back button. This is a very simple and effective web browser. Enjoy!

I tried your app and posted a good comment. Can't really low star you anyways your description says exactly what the app is. BTW it looks like your competition is flaming you with their own app.

Hey,

I just checked out your app. It's nice and quick way to view the CNN mobile webpage. I do have one question, what's the real advantage of using your app compared to just pinning the CNN Mobile homepage to the startscreen?

Btw, I used this website to check on your reviews: ttp://wp7reviews.tomverhoeff.com/AppReviews.aspx?id=cfe3f2e2-db08-e011-9264-00237de2db9e

Looks like the positive reviews are coming through. I won't review you, although i like the concept of the app i agree with some of the review that paying for just a webbrowsercontrol is kind of silly. If you offered it for free it would be 5 stars.

Thank you guys, I really appreciate it. Well the advantage to using my website is not alot of people actually know the mobile site by heart, and my app shows more of the screen than the internet explorer. Also my app shows an icon that goes a little more with the overall design element of the windows phone 7. That's why I'm offering it at .99C plus if you want to just continue using the trial for free it can be the update does have an ad that will support me and there will be no nag screen except during the very first launch if people just want to use the trial. In all honesty i prefer my NewsPaper 7 app. It's got about 14 websites in it and the ability to add two of your own.

Hey,

Just checked your NewsPaper 7 app, to be honest i think that's what should be called your first app since it really ads functionality. It's a really quick way of accessing the mobile webpages.
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.
