Looking for Writers At AndroidRundown!

Looking for Writers At AndroidRundown!

Sep 26, 2011

We’re looking for a few great writers with a strong passion for Android games and apps. People that love grabbing a new app, figuring out it’s strengths and weaknesses, and telling the world about the best of the apps they find. With so many apps in the app marketplace, we’ll never get to all of them. But, we do want to get to the best ones. That’s why we need you.

The ideal app reviewer will devour apps and games, writing 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 own posts and deliver them ready to publish. And, most importantly, good app reviewers should be able to do all this while keeping the review fun and interesting, using the common voice of the site.

All review writers should be able to jump back and forth amongst apps and games, but extra points if you have a passion for non-gaming apps and a nose for finding the best ones across the various Android markets.

Think you have the chops? Check out our requirements here:

You:
– have an Android device, phone or tablet, and think it’s the best thing since sliced bread
– have a general knowledge of and interest in the Android community
– can write at a relatively high level, like what you might see in a magazine or newspaper
– have some familiarity with WordPress or similar CMS platform
– have the time to write and post at least three to five reviews a week

What do you get? Writing for AndroidRundown gets you exposure. We’re still one of the only app review-based Android sites out there, and part of a much larger network, the 148Apps Network. You also get some money, per post, at a competitive rate. That’s not bad, right? 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.

If you think this is something you might be interested it, get familiar with our review style and send us three of your best clips. These are the best portfolio work of review writing you’ve done. The closer to an app review your clips are, the better chance we’ll have of understanding your style. Don’t have any written samples? Write us one! Pick your favorite app or two and write up a 300 – 500 word review, with proper spelling and grammar, and email it to helpwanted+android {at} 148apps {dot} com. We look forward to hearing from you, and we’ll get back to you soon.
