PinkelStar takes mobile app analytics to a whole new social level.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 14, 2010

PinkelStar (http://www.pinkelstar.com), is announcing a round of funding of $ 500,000 from European investors.

PinkelStar makes sharing mobile applications intuitively easy. “With PinkelStar, app developers can set up native social network integration in less than five minutes”, according to PinkelStar founder and CEO, Alexander van Elsas.

PinkelStar’s real-time social analytics allow app developers and publishers a unique insight into their users.

Alexander van Elsas: “Developers love the ability to really understand how their users are connecting and sharing content with friends from their app. It helps them to significantly improve the mobile app discovery process, drive new downloads, increase retention and grow revenue.”

During the Beta, PinkelStar saw more than 100 developers actively testing the service. Their enthusiasm has led to the first Android and iOS apps with PinkelStar integration hitting the stores as we speak. Pinkelstar closed a funding round of $ 500,000 to expand its team and offering. PinkelStar will integrate more networks like Buzz, Netlog, Orkut and Foursquare to its service, and it will expand its social analytics tools.

Alexander van Elsas: “We are crossing the gap between mobile applications and social networks. With companies like Google, Flurry and AdMob already providing mobile device level data aggregation, we take analytics to a whole new social level.”

The PinkelStar Beta is now opening up for more developers and mobile app publishers and can be seen live at the Appnation conference in the Moscone Center North in San Francisco on September 13th and 14th 2010.

PinkelStar calls all developers and publishers to bring their app to the Appnation conference. Alexander van Elsas, “Our team will help you integrate PinkelStar on the spot and prove that our unique model is up and running within five minutes”.

  •     Native Social Network integration of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn in any iOS or Android app
