Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful holiday.
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!
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:
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!
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:
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!
We’re constantly striving to make AppStorm the go-to place for discovering high quality Mac software, and I really value the time you dedicate to reading what we have to say. It means a lot! For this reason, if we haven’t extensively tried and tested a piece of software, it’s unlikely to be featured on the site.
Although Quick Look has been a great way for developers to get the word out about their apps on AppStorm, it’s difficult to write about – and recommend – a piece of software that we aren’t completely familiar with.
For this reason, we’re phasing out Quick Look, and introducing a new way for developers to share their latest and greatest apps with you. Weekly Sponsorships will involve one extra post per week, highlighting a particular developer or application that we personally recommend.
We’re setting a really high standard for the sponsors we accept on AppStorm, and will only be recommending software that we’re tried, tested, and use ourselves on a regular basis!
I hope this will give you a chance to find out about great new software that you haven’t come across before, while at the same time maintaining the high quality of coverage you’ve come to expect from AppStorm.
If you’re a developer and would like to find out more, you can read all about Weekly Sponsorships here. We’re launching this service on Mac.AppStorm next week, with Web.AppStorm and iPhone.AppStorm to follow shortly.
