SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA/MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA — With more than 4 billion handsets in use around world, the mobile is rapidly becoming the most accessible computing device for the majority of the world’s population. This fact was never more obvious than when Apple recently announced 1-Billion iPhone app downloads. There are now over 50,000 iPhone apps alone. (1)(2)

With some app developers rumored to be making up to US$20,000 a day, the competition to develop and market the next big app is huge.™ is a web service designed to help developers do just that. The team of technology writers are dedicated to reviewing leading mobile apps for a range of platforms – including Android, Blackberry, iPhone, Nokia, Palm, Windows Mobile plus more. (1)(2)

Developers can apply to have their mobile apps reviewed for free. Or alternatively, they can use the paid service to guarantee their app is reviewed within a specified period. Founder of™ Ash Conway, says, ‘The premium service is ideal for developers wanting to create as much noise as possible around a particular launch date’.
