Appsfire Releases Slick Update to 5 Star App That Finds the Best iOS Applications; Perfect for Black Friday Gifts

Fast, Elegant Experience and Quality Recommendations Light the Way to iPhone and iPad Apps Worth Downloading While Saving Time and Money

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and PARIS and TEL AVIV, ISRAEL -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 -- Downloaded almost 7M times, Appsfire, the leading recommendation engine for mobile apps, today unveiled a slick and entirely groundbreaking update, making the new Appsfire the fastest, most engaging and extremely addictive way to find the best apps whether on discount, or not. Free and easy-to-use, the upgraded Appsfire has a visually rich display with new social ways to keep on top of the trends, share app lists with friends, and review real opinions aggregated from posts on Facebook and Twitter.

Rebuilt from the ground up to be the most advanced and powerful recommendation engine, Appsfire dynamically sorts through all of the hundreds of thousands of iOS apps in the App Store for the best ones.

"Appsfire is now even more delightful and easy to use and people are telling us they really like how fast it is to search for new favorite apps. The unique, elegant, social and gorgeous upgraded Appsfire tells you if an app is truly first-rate before you press the install button," said Ouriel Ohayon, Appsfire co-founder. "Appsfire definitely saves people time and money."

Application Overwhelm

While over 25 billion apps have been installed to date on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad devices -- well over 75 apps per device -- it is time consuming to explore over 700,000-plus iOS applications (1 million ever created) in the App Store for quality software that fits your individual needs and interests. Even when you know what you want, it is tough to decipher which application is the best one in a category.

Ohayon added, "People around the world tell us how addictive and simple Appsfire is to use. They love the speed, value the clear-cut recommendations that help them make decisions and they are having fun with the social aspects of the new release."

Downloaded this app and I haven't stopped using it yet. It's definitely the most useful app -- September 26, 2012

How Appsfire works:
When you launch Appsfire for the first time, the mobile application prompts you to share your interests, set personal criteria for the types of applications you are interested in, and indicate your price tolerance. Appsfire automatically tailors your experience and presents top-quality apps that are relevant to you.

Appsfire shows a continuously computed quality score of 1-100 based on a wide range of parameters gathered both inside and outside the App Store, such as professional review sites, Twitter, and Facebook.

Every aspect of the app has been optimized to save time. The new, blazing-fast Appsfire search engine instantly guesses what you are to looking for (name of an app, a category or even a need); e.g. when you type AN, up pops Angry Birds.

Availability and Cost:
Appsfire is a free application now available in the Apple App Store for download onto iPhones and iPads. Appsfire is offered in 13 different languages.

About Appsfire
Appsfire is a premium, mobile, discovery and marketing platform for iOS and Android platforms. Downloaded almost 7 million times, the elegant and personal recommendation engine helps consumers find applications that match their needs. The Appsfire platform powers app discovery through a variety of third party premium mobile apps and web services. The original concept of Appsfire was born in early 2010 out of a simple point of frustration: sharing and finding apps simply wasn't practical.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
WebRTC adoption has generated a wave of creative uses of communications and collaboration through websites, sales apps, customer care and business applications.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Graham Holt, Executive Vice President of Daitan Group, will cover implementation examples that have enabled ea...
The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace.
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.
