AdDuplex, the cross promotion network for Windows and Windows Phone apps and games who bring us lots of interesting insights into Windows Phone usage via their statistics, has just released a new and very interesting Universal Windows App they’re calling AppRaisin (a clever play on “appraisin’g”, get it?)
The app, available now on both desktop Windows 10 and Windows 10 mobile, “helps Windows enthusiasts stay on top of the latest releases, major updates and special offerings”, works in a way similar to sites like Digg, Reddit, or Hacker News. That is, developers and enthusiasts post the latest app news, and the wider community can upvote items on the chart. Ranking is based on a number of factors, including time, so that the freshest news rises to the top while older items move their way down the list.
The first version of AppRaisin is shipping with the basics, making it easy to submit, rate and share app news, but there are lots more features in the planning stages, including “social stuff” like user pages, comments, and more.
Here at WinBeta we’re always on the lookout for new and newly updated apps, and are looking forward to giving AppRaisin a try.
