Zedge, a leading mobile content discovery platform with 30 million monthly unique visitors, invites Android app developers to promote their apps on Zedge. Android developers will now be able to participate in an app promotional network that does not prioritize based on pay per click or pay per download. Rather, it utilizes fair and open rankings available to all developers and not just those with deep pockets to pay for promotion. Space is limited, but initial entry during the beta period is free to all developers who are accepted.

“Independent app developers are creating the most astounding, brilliant and innovative apps for Android, only to get buried by less impressive output from commercial production shops with big marketing budgets,” said Zedge’s Co-Founder and President, Tom Arnoy. “The Zedge Discovery Network offers developers a better world….a true meritocracy where the best apps will flourish. In other words, apps that the Zedge users want but have not yet been able to discover will rise to the top of our platform.”

The pricing model is as unique as the offering. Developers will be able to access the platform for a flat monthly fee per app based on company size, complete with a 10 day free trial period. Developers who participate in the beta prior to launch will also receive three months access free. Developers may cancel at any time.

“We have established a pricing system that will encourage independent developers. The industry standard pay-per-click and pay-per-download pricing models have created a stifling ecosystem that rewards deep pockets and quantity rather than quality. Our approach, on the other hand, rewards quality and creativity. We expect to accept only good and relevant apps into the network,” said Mark Rosner, CEO of Zedge, “and we’ll be able to provide Android developers with access to a large, carefully targeted and highly engaged user community.”
