PRODUCTS

appscore

appscore is a quality score which drives discovery, distribution and incentives for developers' apps. It is the core of what appbackr does. We use a machine-learning model to score every app on major platforms including Android, iOS, Chrome, BlackBerry, and Windows Mobile. It's our product used by consumers, developers and partners.

appscore is the foundation of Xchange which provides incentives and rewards to developers based on a ratio between the appscore and its current market performance. Based on this ratio, developers receive incentives to port apps and to promote their apps on partner sites operated by carriers, OEMs and other third parties.

Xchange

Xchange provides a platform to developers to receive offers from stores and platforms to port their apps. Based on the appbackr appscore, the higher the app scores, the greater the incentives to port. Developers also can promote their app on carriers and OEMs based on the score of the app. appscore looks at reviews, stars, app traction and other factors to score every app on iOS and GooglePlay from 0-10. The higher the number, the better the app and the better the reward.

Marketplace

Marketplace has helped developers crowdfund over 1 million dollars to develop and market their new apps. Developers build a distribution network around their app campaign page through online email, social media and blogging and offline communication.
