This game, originally called "Summer Solitaire" for iPhone and iPad is very addictive and users love it. Launched in 2010, the game however only sold a few units a day. The sales got a lot better after it has been re-named to „Solitaire“ in summer 2011, to ensure it will be more easily found in the App Store. We also created a free-version with in-App Purchases and made the free version „universal“ (as this got an even higher search ranking for the term "Solitaire").
If you check the Appfigures data, you will see how this game performed in the past and that we published different versions to find the best way to monetise it.
We are also collecting a great amount of data on Flurry.
Just a few days ago, Apple changed the search algorythm in the US App store, pushing back our Solitaire being displayed from around nr. 8 to now beyond nr. 100.
Have a closer look at the data that we have collected and tell us from your perspective if and how we can use this data to monetise our Solitaire game in the best way possible. You are welcome to put together a list of questions when working on this task.
If you are keen on solving this first little test tasks, please give us a feedback within 3 working days. As soon as we got your feedback, we will give you access and „invite“ you to the tools mentioned above.
As soon as the task is fulfiled, we will transfer the money with Paypal.
