September 19, 2012
By all accounts, yesterday was an enormously successful day for AppsGoneFree. We released the highly anticipated AppsGoneFree 2.0, which added full iPad support, nine new languages, and, of course, AppBump. Loyal fans and newcomers alike really seem to be enjoying the update so far, at least based on how fast we have moved up the App Store charts and all of the wonderful reviews we have received. Without all of you, none of this would be possible, so I want to extend a huge thank you from our entire AppsGoneFree team! We also registered around 21,000 AppBumps yesterday alone. Now, that certainly is a great start, but we want more! Lots more! AppBump can't be truly successful unless our entire AppsGoneFree community gets behind it and gets bumping. The amount of AppBumps we receive is really important because it's what provides you, our readers, with sway in the huge ocean of apps that is the App Store. It's what we use to convince developers that their app, whether new or old, is desired by all of our users and deserves a much bigger audience. You can bump an app just by launching the new and improved AppsGoneFree, tapping that little AppBump icon in the top right corner of the screen, searching for your desired app by name, and then tapping the big green bump button. Rinse and repeat. Here's a little video demonstration: Keep in mind that the type of apps that should be bumped aren't necessarily the top paid apps in the App Store like Angry Birds. We're looking for apps that deserve to be rediscovered, like ReaddleDocs, or those that didn't have a big budget and failed to get the proper amount of recognition. So what do you say? Do you want to help us add to that 21,000 and make sure that we are rewarding the most deserving apps and their developers? Then get to it by downloading AppsGoneFree and bumping apps until you can't bump anymore! Of course, there is something in it for you too. Free apps! While you're at it, make sure to download today's AppBump featured app, BugMe! Stickies Pro, to show your support.
