AppStories 4 – App Discovery and Affiliate Programs with AfterPad’s Kevin MacLeod
Federico Viticci and John Voorhees invited me to participate in the latest episode of the AppStories.net Podcast for an interview / discussion. We talk about the history of AfterPad, about the state of Apple gaming, and a about how sites like AfterPad can exist thanks to affiliate programs. This was my first-ever podcast appearance, and I think it turned out pretty well.
One important detail: at the time this episode was recorded, Apple was planning to cut affiliate commissions from 7% to 2.5%. This would have a significant impact on my site, and many others. Apple seems to have changed their minds on this point, instead only cutting commissions on in-app purchases.
