AppTap is a venture-backed social discovery and advertising start-up reinventing the way apps are discovered. We are the leading network for app advertising and recommendations, connecting millions of consumers with targeted, relevant apps across our partners, including Sprint, AOL and USA TODAY.
With over 600,000 apps available in the app stores today, app developers are struggling to rise above the noise. With $60B in app revenues projected, app developers need an advertising platform to market their apps and build their businesses. AppTap is that platform.
