Hey everyone, it’s Friday and we’re close to the end of the week of TouchArcade blasting stories out (unless anything cool happens over the weekend we need to cover), but the fact still remains: To survive, we very much need your support. The business of running a web site is tricky, and as we pointed out in our original cry for help, the way developers promote their iOS games has changed significantly with the rise of metrics-centric free to play and in-game directly tracked advertising. It’s supremely difficult for us to compete with that, and as such, we’ve been appealing to our community directly. If you like hanging out on our forums, listening to our podcasts, or reading some of the best long-form content in mobile gaming, please consider supporting us on Patreon. We never hit our initial goal, but we’ve been slowly climbing none the less. We’re hopeful we get there eventually!
It doesn’t take a whole lot to keep us afloat, as we run super lean as is. As I’ve mentioned before on the podcast, even if our hardcore podcast followers each just contributed a buck a month we’d really never need to worry about this again. It’d be awesome to not need to worry about this kind of thing, and instead just continue focusing on combing the App Store for the best games iOS has to offer. To do that, we need your help. Think of it like subscribing to a magazine, except that magazine shovels rad content your direction 24/7 and is home to a great community of people to discuss every aspect of mobile gaming with.
Of course we appreciate the support of our current and former backers, but if you haven’t chipped in yet… If you like what we do around here, please consider supporting us on Patreon.
