It’s a big day at AppStorm HQ today, as we’ve launched an exclusive preview of two new sites that are due to kick off in the New Year. I hope you’ll join me in welcoming both Android.AppStorm and Windows.AppStorm to our growing family of sites!

As a die-hard Mac user, I know what you’re thinking… Windows and Android? Well allow me a minute to explain our thinking. After all, even the most dedicated Mac user has a reason to boot into Windows from time to time, and it’s difficult to ignore the storming success of Android in recent months!

Windows.AppStorm

With Windows 7 restoring some lost Windows pride, it’s time PC users had a place to find awesome apps from both small indie developers and the big powerhouses. Plus I’ve been hearing really good things about the new Windows Mobile, so you can expect to get a dose of non-desktop apps too! To kick things off we have:

90+ Incredibly Useful Windows 7 Apps & Tips

If you’re interested in checking out what’s available on the other platform, be sure to take a look! Perfectly happy with your Mac? Don’t worry – we won’t be inundating you with Windows content here at Mac.AppStorm and you can stay in your beautifully designed Mac bubble!

Android.AppStorm

Lately Android has been appearing on all sorts of devices. With a few different app stores and so many incredible developers making apps for Google’s open source platform, you need a trusted place to get the low down on Android Apps. So head over and check out the new site!

I know plenty of Mac users who love their Android phones, so hopefully this one will be useful for quite a few of our readers. Our first bumper post takes the form of:

100+ Absolutely Essential Android Apps & Tips

The New AppStorm Homepage

Last, but not least, we have a brand new AppStorm homepage over at AppStorm.net. This offers a central place to find out about all the different AppStorm sites, and we’ll be expanding and improving this over the coming months.

Thanks for Reading!

Thanks again for taking the time to read our sites every day. I hope you enjoy the teaser posts we’ve launched today, and I’m really looking forward to getting into full swing with both sites in 2011.

Feel free to let us know your thoughts in the comments, along with any suggestions for content you’d like to see on the new sites!
