Some Words From the Big Guy

Surely, you haven’t missed that we’re going public. And what better way to celebrate this than with a few words (brace yourself for a wall of text) from His Excellency himself? Well, except for the old run around in bunny suits and grope the most criminal looking guys you find, of course. Since our bunny suits are at the dry cleaner’s, give it up for our CEO, Patric Bottne! What a journey.

On the Number 200

A Polish square, a euro bill, your mom and NASCAR driver Richard Petty. What do they have in common? Hopefully nothing. But take out the fair lady and replace her with AppSpotr and… Tadaa! The number 200. Our very favorite one at the moment. 200 is the smallest base 10 unprimeable number, meaning it can’t be turned into a prime number by changing just one of its digits to any other digit.

App of the Month: TPC Youth

October’s App of the Month is there to help your kids tap into the rhythm of their soul. Literally. And while looking pretty gangsta in the process. An impossible feat, skeptics might say, but The Pulse Collective disagrees. TPC Youth is a training program designed to give young dancers tap training in the spirit of UK’s number one tap team, The Pulse Collective. With a more experimental approach and a bigger focus on expression, they deliver moves with even more swag than conventional tap dancing.

It seems you’ve all been slaying your hydra and making your offerings, because surely, this must be a gift straight from Applympus. Finally you can publish to your own App Store account! So, a while ago we opened up for publishing apps to your own account on Google Play. This unlocked the possibility to make money on your app, not to mention people would know who was behind it. No doubt a welcome change, but far from perfect with heavy-hitting App Store left out of the equation.
