AppUpdate Helps Users Discover and Share Hidden Gem Apps in the Android Market
Mobile Dev Partners, LLC has released AppUpdate, a mobile, friend-sourced app discovery solution.Â AppUpdate helps users, and their friends on Facebook, discover and share hidden gems in the Android Market.
College Park, MD â€“ September 17, 2011 â€“ A recent study by Nielsen showed that the top 50 apps in the Android Market account for over 61% of all app usage, while the rest largely sit idle. â€œThere are a huge number of fantastic apps in the Android Market that no one has heard about. We wanted to create a social way for users to discover and share these hidden gems,â€ said Yermo Lamers, CEO of Mobile Dev Partners. â€œMost people I've talked to just don't know where to start with the market. With AppUpdate, they can now see which apps their friends recommended, and what they've said about them. Since every recommendation comes from a trusted source, adoption friction is reduced. Some AppUpdate users have told us they hadn't tried a single new app before using AppUpdate.â€
With Facebook integration, AppUpdate enables users to share their favorite apps, and to see the recommendations of their friends in different ways. Users can post updates about their favorite apps, browse a news feed of other â€œapp updatesâ€, install apps directly from updates, see the most popular apps in their circle of friends, browse the recommendations of individual friends, and engage in conversations.
AppUpdate provides a social view into the Android Market, the view of a particular users group of friends, enabling users to discover and share the best hidden gem apps that aren't in the top 50.
AppUpdate is currently available for free in the Android Market.
