Appastic (http://www.apptastic.net) is a shareware registration service that offers competitive rates on a per transaction basis. Apptastic stands apart from other shareware registration services by offering functionality that allows software developers to track users through-out their products life cycles.
Apptastic's Developer Control panel allows developers to keep track of registered users from the time of purchase, and beyond, with an intuitive support tracking system, which allows users to submit support tickets and developers to easily manage tickets. Apptastic also includes functionality to combat piracy, by allowing software developers to use our service, which connect and validate user information at the time of registration.
Version 1.0 of Apptastic's Developer Control Panel goes beyond most shareware registration services, by assisting developers with more then just a merchant account. Developers can easily manage day to day tasks with the help of our all inclusive control panel, including:
User Tracking / Serial Number Tracking:
Developers can now keep all of their users information stored in a central place. When a user registers, instead of just emailing a developer, Apptastic makes it easy to distribute and monitor a user's serial number. When a user enters their registration information into an author's product, the product can quickly and securely check the status and validity of the information, which then can be flagged and viewed by the author, making piracy attempts easy to track and combat.
Support Ticketing System:
Developers can also use Apptastic to keep track of bugs, comments, and user input with a easy to us support ticket system. When a user adds a support ticket, the author is automatically emailed. Support tickets are also sorted by date and status allowing software developers to deal with the most critical bugs first.
Developers can easily setup promotion codes, which will give users discounts on products.
Accounting / Reporting:
Apptastic includes detailed reports that can be imported into excel, Quick-books, and other accounting software with the click of a button. Graphical reports are also available to keep track of user traffic, sales, registrations, and more.
Apptastic was the brainchild of Craig Gardner and Justin Burger, San Diego natives; If you would like more information about Apptastic, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or go to http://www.apptastic.net
