Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 2, 2010
Appolicious Inc. today expands its growing suite of services that help consumers find iPhone apps and Android apps by announcing the acquisition of AppVee, which owns AppVee.com and AndroidApps.com. AppVee, which was founded in 2008 shortly after the launch of the iTunes App Store, caters to a large audience of iPhone app devotees, while AndroidApps.com is the best location on the web to find apps developed for Google’s Android mobile platform. As part of the acquisition AppVee reviewers will continue to write for both sites in addition to Appolicious. Appolicious plans to add more social features to both websites, including the ability for users to create profiles and curate lists of their top apps for any given subject.
"We like the content and fan base AppVee offers, and the fact that their service works so well on the web as well as the iPhone itself, and quickly determined that an acquisition made sense," said Alan Warms, founder and CEO of Appolicious.com. “Combining our audiences will offer a better social experience for app users and a better solution for app marketers."
The sites will maintain their original style, but Appolicious will add more social benefits, such as the ability for users to create profiles, curate their own list of top apps, import their app libraries, and more. AppVee and Appolicious combined now carry thousands of iPhone app and Android App reviews, compilations and industry news stories. Users will also benefit from more than 1,100 video reviews.
Alex Ahlund, the visionary behind AppVee, will now serve as an adviser to Appolicious. "From the beginning, I always thought that social recommendations would be key to app discovery. Adding the Appolicious industry-leading social feature set to the professional review AppVee sites will result in the best of all worlds for our customers.”
Appolicious is available on the iPad, iPhone, and online.
There are currently more than 140,000 iPhone apps available in the iTunes App Store and more than 20,000, Android apps available in the Android Market. With the release of Apple’s iPad tablet computer, developers and major brands are creating apps for the expanded screen site. The Appolicious network of sites and iPhone application helps consumers locate apps on multiple screen sizes including the iPhone, computer, and iPad which will be available in March.
The acquisition of AppVee.com and Androidapps.com means Appolicious can continue pursuing their mission to "create the best experience for app consumers and solving the increasingly difficult problem of finding just the right app," says Warms.
