Well, app.net achieved it’s funding goal and I’m proud to say I was within the first 1000 to back the service (user 890). If you haven’t joined, head over to join.app.net before 11:59pm PDT today to be one of the first in, an alpha tester.
app.net is much publicised so I won’t add more here. Head over to Dalton Caldwell’s blog to read more.
The app.net service is already buzzing with great conversation and content. Native iOS and Android apps are in development by independent developers (users of app.net) as are some great web apps and mobile web apps. check out the preliminary list of what’s being worked on here: https://github.com/appdotnet/api-spec/wiki/Directory-of-third-party-devs-and-apps
app.net promises to be about delivering a product for the user, the customer NOT the advertisers. That is a breath of fresh air.
