Android App Review/Blogger Wanted

148Apps is looking for several App Reviewers and Bloggers for our newly launched Android sister site, Android Rundown. The premise is very straight forward: a website focused on Android content, with heavy emphasis on reviews of paid apps available in the Android Market.

Your past experience is not nearly as important as your ability to write proficiently, your passion for Android, and your drive. The ideal writer for our Android site should be able to devour apps and games and be able to write about them quickly and authoritatively. You should have a good critical eye and the ability to express yourself well. You should be able to self edit your posts and deliver them ready to publish. And most importantly, you should be able to do this while keeping your review fun and interesting like the common voice of our sites.

In addition to review writers, we are also looking to add one or two news reporters. The ideal news reporter would be someone who knows when an app is going to be released before anyone else does. Someone who knows the industry and the people in the industry. Wakes up in the middle of the night to see what new apps have gone live. And is comfortable talking to developers, marketing people, and even press agencies. You must be able to respond to and write about events and industry changes quickly. And most importantly you should be able to filter through information for what is a good story and what is just PR fluff.

If you think either of these descriptions fit your skills, please keep reading. In exchange for your amazing writing skills, we will provide a brand new outlet for your talents. And of course there’s the money. We do ask that you only apply if you can keep up a regular posting frequency. While this isn’t a full time job, it’s not a once-in-a-while hobby either.

As this is a paid opportunity, please provide several samples of your work that is relevant. For those of you who don’t have relevant experience, please pick your 3 absolute favorite Android apps and provide a 300 word review of each of the apps along with your information.

If you have any questions, please contact us at the address below.
