Flippfly is proud to announce that Monkey Drum Deluxe 1.0 has been featured by Apple in the "New and Noteworthy" section of the App Store. This exposure for their latest universal iOS app could allow it to compete with larger well-funded studios. With hundreds of apps submitted to Apple's App Store every day, it has become extremely difficult for small developers like Flippfly to garner attention for their releases. While larger studios have the ability to draw attention to their products through expensive advertising campaigns, small independent developers have few options to get their app noticed.
However, an app that earns Apple's coveted "New and Noteworthy" feature can gain attention and exposure that would cost tens of thousands of dollars through traditional online advertising. This is the fortunate placement of Flippfly's latest offering, Monkey Drum Deluxe. The app, which is designed to be a fun way for children to learn about music, allows users to create detailed musical compositions by drawing on a touch screen. After being released in relative obscurity, it has risen to the thirtieth place of the education category on the App Store. The week-long feature has the potential to push the app into the top twenty-five, at which point it would gain even more exposure on the mobile version of the app store.
