I've just released a Windows version of one of my apps (http://www.codebykevin.com/filemorph.html) and I've submitted a PAD file to AppVisor at http://appvisor.com. Anyone have experience with AppVisor? Any issues with getting your app approved? Does it generate any sort of traffic? I'm not inclined to pay for their subscription services quite as of yet, but it seems at the very least to provide a home base for storing PAD files. Advice is appreciated.

AppVisor is owned by or closed linked to the ASP (Association of software professionals) organization, as part of a landgrab to try and monetize version 4 of the PAD spec.
Approval can be a pain.  It won't generate any significant traffic.

Have the ASP gone down yet? Last I heard they were about to run out of money.

They need to update the pad spec.

For instance, you're not allowed to use https links.
