Partnering with Developers to Sell More Applications

Comments

I recently received emails from both Tether and Smrtguard promoting each others’ application. Tether is a simple tethering solution for BlackBerry, and Smrtguard helps to protect your device from theft or loss. The two apps don’t have any overlap in terms of features or offerings, which makes it a great partnership to promote one another.
