There is a commercial forum for that.

That's not at issue here. The issue is promoting commercial products in the open forums.

Do you see any ads around here? This is far off the mark, and likely to evoke a strong response.

This is legitimate in my opinion. You could probably do better by posting an ad, complete with app store links, to the commercial forum. If all you want to do is to promote your apps, then leave it at that. Otherwise, participate in general discussions with your fellow enthusiasts. Mention your apps when they are on-topic, but be aware there is sensitivity around here about commercial promotion. Monitor the forums for questions regarding your apps, and answer them appropriately. This is how to care for your customers in the digital age. If you are enthusiastic about what your customers are enthusiastic about, then that's perfect. Smile

Sounds to me like you're both. Welcome!
