App.net calls itself a “mobile app distribution and monetization platform for iOS and Android”. Basically, it wants to take care of certain essential tasks for mobile app developers, tasks that might not sound interesting to the code-savvy geeks (read app creators).
The tasks mainly hover around promoting the app online. Be it creating a good landing page or smart download buttons or widgets, the service lets developers get all that done easily. It also provides analytics so that developers can see how users are interacting with the landing pages, how many of them download the app and other such performance data.
The service definitely has great potential. The mobile app ecosystem is huge and no other service targets the app developers and helps them with online promotion.
- Tools and services for Android and iOS developers.
