The Social Network for Apps!
We want Community Managers!
Appucino (http://appucino.com) is a new social network for Android, Web and iOS Apps. Appucino comprises a few lines of code that can be cozily integrated into Apps, to magically create social features such as location-based leaderboards and chat (for those apps)!
We believe that the future of entertainment belongs to Apps. Since so many Apps get released everyday, it’s tough to get Apps discovered by consumers and even tougher to keep their App users engaged and loyal. Appucino solves this major challenge via its magical features (ahem – its social and local features).
Check out one success story of Appucino here.
