With likes and comments that are from the user’s own posts which doesn’t make the user feel bombarded because all are relevant to them.

Some Words From Our Chairman

Today the First Developers Gets Access to Our Developer Portal

Today I’m happy to announce that Appspotr opens up our portal for external developers to build and contribute to our Marketplace modules. This is huge for us and for the world of app building!

Uniting over 50,000 fans from all across the world in perfect disharmony, the festival is one of the biggest metal happenings in all of Scandinavia.

Planning a trip to the mystical realm of Westeros? Let’s face it, with psychotic would-be kings, putrid ice zombies and “muh dwagons” lurking around every corner, the place doesn’t have the best reputation at the moment. Something November’s App of the Month hopes to change. Westeros, Land of the Seven Kingdoms, known for its wondrous magic, political power struggles and character assassination (Stannis Baratheon, we’re looking at you). With the death of the rightful king and the impending threat of an ice-zombie army drawing closer, Westeros might not seem like the place to be at the moment.
