    Hi Guys,

    I've always seen apps in app store and google play right off the launch of their app go straight to the top of the free charts, so there got to be some tricks to get downloads to your app so it increases in ranking I thought there won't be any other place to ask this then here. Do you guys know any services or any tricks to get downloads to your free app?

    A good reputation of a product is definitely helpful for promotion. Same does apps promotion, users are more likely to download the app with higher ratings and more good reviews, as long as those reviews are real. Moreover, it also works on boosting app ranking in App Store, and then increasing the visibility of apps to attract more potential users.
    Here are 3 ways to get more reviews:

    1. Exchange reviews with other developers.

    There are many groups on networks where publishers can exchange installs and reviews each other. You can find those group of people at related forums, Facebook groups, and Google plus groups, etc. However, generating installs or reviews from users will take much longer time.

    2. Implant an app review plugin.

    Build-in an app plugin in your app allows users have a chance to give feedback to the app passively. Because most of the users would not like to review the apps actively. However, there are several things need to be noticed. The plugin should pop up only when users complete the task. Besides, always give an option for users to say “No”. However, it is not a very efficient way to boost reviews.

    3. Get paid reviews

    Buying app reviews from providers is also recommended . Since you need to spend money on that, it is important to choose a reliable providers who can guarantee that all of their ratings and installs are from real app users, such as reviewapp4u.com. It would makes the reviews more trustworthy and persuasive for potential users.
