We make viral loops.
There are 1.7 million apps today, all competing to win space on our mobile devices.
Peer referrals are the best source of growth for mobile applications, we help developers unlock that potential.
We've created a platform, that is like ShareThis, but for mobile and it's even more powerful.
AdMob took Google Adsense and made it mobile. We're taking the success of ShareThis, and applying this model to the mobile world.
AppSocially provides an easy-to-use tool for mobile app developers to (1) integrate best-practice referral functions into their apps, (2) keep track of referral metrics and (3) take action to optimize referral channels.
P.S. Viral loops never happen without understanding your customers, engaging them, iterating, optimizing growth funnel and maximizing customer satisfaction.
