How to Submit an App for Review

We welcome request for reviews, news releases, and previews for existing or upcoming iOS/Mac apps for kids. We can’t guarantee that your app will be reviewed, but we do try to evaluate every title submitted. If you have an app that you’d like us to check out, please send an email to contact@geekswithjuniors.com.

While we accept promo codes for apps, we do not charge for our reviews. We experimented with the paid review model in the past but decided it was not for us. If you’d like to support our site, please consider purchasing an advertising spot on our sidebar.

Tips for Getting Faster Replies

We try to process every request as soon as we can, and it would help if you follow these tips when emailing us.

1. Include all relevant information

The more information we have on your app, the easier it is for us to decide whether your app would be a great fit for our site. Here is a checklist of things you should include in your email:

  • App name
  • App Store link
  • Pricing model: is it paid, free, or free with IAPs?
  • Link to a trailer or gameplay video (preferred over screenshots)
  • Screenshots
  • Press release documents
  • Planned release date if the app has not been made public already

Please attach the files separately (not in a zipped file).

2. Include a fresh promo code

If you are willing to provide a promo code for your app, please include it in your first email. We advise generating a fresh code every time. We only need one promo code, and we will always let you know when we have redeemed it.

Please note that a promo code does not guarantee that your app will be reviewed on the site. It is only used for evaluation purposes.

3. TestFlight as a last resort

We prefer to review apps that have been finalized and are ready for sale, but exceptions may be made. If you’d like to provide us with a preview copy of your app through TestFlight, please email us first and wait for a reply.

What to Do If You Didn't Get a Reply

If you don't hear from us within 2 weeks of sending an email that contains a promo code, please send us a follow-up email. If we still do not reply within 2 weeks of that follow-up email, consider it a rejection notice.
