New Site Helps iPhone And iPod Touch App Developers And Publishers Generate More Publicity

Mobile app Developers and Publishers looking for exposure can now do so with a new website that allows them to giveaway their iPhone/iPod Touch apps by way of a promotional giveaway. App Giveaway (www.appgiveaway.com), allows Publishers and Developers to feature their apps on the website in return for promo codes which they receive from the Apple Store – and maximise potential revenue. The website has been created as a way of helping both mobile Developers/Publishers promote their apps whilst at the same time giving something back to the users of the iPhone/iPod Touch devices.

App Giveaway, (www.appgiveaway.com) went live this week and does exactly what it says on the tin – it features iPhone and iPod Touch apps that are ready to be distributed to the online community. What makes the site unique is that it’s free for all to participate and all we ask for in return are promo codes which we can distribute to our online users, thereby maximising exposure and potential revenue in the future from direct links and referrals.

Application Developers and Publishers that are already receiving exposure on the App Giveaway website include Game Systems with their iPhone application “T.A.N.K. Arena Battle” and an app called “Earth Quake Watch” developed by an aspiring 11 year old.

The idea developed after Apple agreed to provide developers 50 promo codes each: “I heard Apple was providing Developers upto 50 iPhone promo codes for new apps and/or updated apps featured in the Apple Store. I thought, ‘That’s it, why don’t I provide Developers and Publishers a central platform where they can giveaway their promo codes whilst promoting their app much more effectively?’ Then I thought I might as well include categories, too, as this will give visitors a much more convenient way of looking for apps.”Al says.

George Sutty of G.A.M.E.S. says “I am very excited to work with AppGiveaway to help me promote my game. After talking to other iPhone developers, it’s very clear, that without the right exposure, the odds of getting noticed among the other 40,000+ iPhone applications are pretty slim. It is hard enough to get a review noticed, and that’s assuming you can get the review written in the first place. The giveaway is such an easy way for a developer to get noticed”.

The site also maximizes exposure by serving as a useful app directory, because all iPhone and iPod Touch apps are categorized in a sidebar. Categories include Books, Business, Entertainment, Finance, Games, and many more.

Al has big plans for the site: “I want the www.appgiveaway.com website to be the biggest promoter of iPhone and iPod Touch applications. I also want to provide a service for people to feature and visit useful apps. I believe the app giveaway website will have a profound effect on the way we find, download and forward useful apps in the future. We also have plans to launch an iPhone app version of the app giveaway website very soon”

App Giveaway also features articles. Al says: “I’m a big fan of writing, so I would like to write a few words related to mobile applications on the website.”

iShoes And iBags Apps Expand Availability Of Fashion-Related Content In Popular Apple App Store

Mobile App Studio, developer of premium mobile applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch, announced today the release of the iShoes and iBags fashion apps on the Apple App Store. Following the successful launch of Apple’s iPhone mobile platform last year, there are now over 30 million iPhones and iPod Touches in use today. Users of these devices can download applications to their phones that fit their interests and needs. 

“There are over 35,000 apps available now on the Apple App Store, but one thing we’ve noticed is that very few of these apps are targeting women,” said Carleen Ghio, co-founder of the Mobile App Studio. “As the iPhone market continues to expand, we wanted to ensure that fashion and shopping-related apps aimed at the female market are available on the Apple App Store to interest new users.” 

The iShoes and iBags applications give users the ability to entertain themselves by casually browsing shoes and handbags f r o m their phones, leading to the discovery of new products and brands that interest them. They can also narrow their search to their favorite brands or a specific type of shoe or handbag when they have specific shopping needs. Users can add any products they see to their Favorites list, and then email this list to themselves or their friends. 

The email option is key because it gives users the option to review their selected products later f r o m their home computer, as browsing retailer websites and making purchases via mobile devices is not as easy as it is f r o m a normal web browser. The focus on a single fashion product in each application, combined with simple navigation and browsing options, also makes the apps well suited for small mobile devices. There is even an offline mode available that allows users to download a set of shoes or handbags in advance and then browse them when on an airplane or out of range. 

iShoes and iBags bring over 50,000 shoes and 20,000 handbags to the iPhone. The applications search hundreds of brands sold by over 100 retailers via ShopStyle.com. The products on display are constantly updated, allowing users to keep up with the latest styles available each season.  iShoes and iBags are available as a free download on the Apple App Store.

Wix.Com – An Online Web Design Platform That Lets Non-Tech Savvy Musicians Create Dynamic Flash Website

How are up-and-coming bands marketing themselves more effectively than signed artists–and putting the final nail in the record company coffin in the process?

The answer: new online web design platforms like Wix.com that let non-tech savvy musicians create dynamic flash website and MySpace pages (for free) that not only rival, but exceed the quality of professionally made websites.

As I’m sure you know, record companies have been taking it on the chin the past few years with music sales drying up. But their saving grace has been their powerful marketing arms, which for top artists has always been the best way to achieve market penetration. No longer.

Web 2.0 has leveled the playing field. Musicians can send e-flyers with embedded music about upcoming gigs, create customizable widgets for their MySpace page, and create band Flash websites that match the artistic value of their music.

The result: young and up-and-coming bands are now marketing themselves more effectively than big name artists. That’s why in just a few months nearly 200,000 musicians have already signed up with Wix.com web design platform.

About Wix

www.wix.com is a free, DIY and easy-to use Web design platform. Wix is the only web publishing platform that allows users to create stunning and completely original Flash websites. Founded in September 2006 and launched in open beta in April 2008, Wix was born out of the founders’ frustration with creating dynamic looking Websites that didn’t involve coding or programming. Wix has received $8.5 million funding from Bessemer Venture Partners and Mangrove Capital Partners. and is headquartered in New York and offices in Tel Aviv. www.wix.com.

2008’s Most Popular Web 2.0 Sites

Today we are living in web 2.0 times more than ever before. PR, press coverage, buzz, evangelism, lobbying, who knows who, who blogs who, who talks about who, mainstream media and beyond – all of those words found in the dictionary of almost every new web site that coins itself as web 2.0, but as the global economy crisis is raising upon us promising to leave us working in a very depressed business environment with little to no liquidation events at all for the next years the real question is: who the real winners in today’s web 2.0 space are based on real people using their web properties since 2005 the web 2.0 term was coined for first time. Since then we have witnessed hundreds of millions of US dollars poured into different web 2.0 sites, applications and technologies and perhaps now is the time to find out which of those web sites have worked things out. We took the time necessary to discover today’s most popular web 2.0 sites based on real traffic and site usage and Not on buzz or size of funding. Sites are ranked based on the estimated traffic figures. After spending years in assessing web 2.0 sites applying tens of different from economical and technological to media criteria in an effort to evaluate them we came up to the conclusion that there is only one criterion worth our attention and it is the real people that use a given site, the traffic, the site usage, etc., based on which the web site can successfully be monetized. Of course, there are a few exceptions from the general rule like sites with extremely valuable technologies and no traffic at all, but as we said, they are exceptions. Ad networks, web networks, hosted networks and group of sites that use consolidated traffic numbers as their own or such ones that rely on the traffic of other sites to boost their own figures (ex.: various ad networks, Quantcast, WordPress etc.) are not taken into consideration and the sites from within those respective networks and groups have been ranked separately. International traffic is of course taken into consideration. Add ons, social network apps and widgets usage is not taken into consideration. Sub-domains as well as international TLDs part of the principal business of the main domain/web site are included. Media sites including such covering the web 2.0 space have also been included. Old buys from the dot com era are not considered and ranked accordingly.

Disclaimer: some data based on which the sites below are ranked may not be complete or correct due to lack of public data available for the traffic of respective sites. Please also note that the data taken into consideration for the ranking may have meanwhile changed and might possibly be no longer the same at the time you are reading the list. Data has been gathered during the months of July, August, September and December 2008.

Today’s most popular Web 2.0 sites based on the traffic they get as measured during the months of July, August and September 2008.

Priority is given to direct traffic measurement methods wherever applicable. Panel data as well as toolbar traffic figures are not taken into cosndieration. Traffic details as taken from Quantcast, Google Analytics*, Nielsen Site Audit, Nielsen NetRatings, comScore Media Metrix, internal server log files*, Compete and Alexa. Press release, public relation and buzz traffic and usage figures as they have appeared in the mainstream and specialized media are given with lower priority unless supported by direct traffic measurement methods.

Web 2.0 sites having less than 1M unique visitors per month even though popular in one way or another are not subject of this list and are not taken into consideration. We know for at least 100 other considered really good web 2.0 sites, apps and technologies of today, but since they are getting less than 1M uniuqes per month they were not able to make our list. However, sites being almost there (850K-950K/mo) and believed to be in position to reach the 1M monthly mark in the next months are also included at the bottom of the list. Those sites are marked with “<“, which means close to 1M, but not yet there. No hard feelings :).

If we’ve omitted one site or another that you know is getting at least 1M uniques per month and you are not seeing it above, drop us a note at info[at]web2innovations.com and we’ll have it included. Please note that the site proposed should be having steady traffic for at least 3 months prior submission to the list above. Sites like, for example: Powerset and Cuil, may not qualify for inclusion due to their temporary traffic leaps caused by buzz they have gotten, a criterion we try to offset. For other corrections and omissions please write at same email address. Requests for corrections of the traffic figures the sites are ranked on can only be justified by providing us with the accurate traffic numbers from reliable direct measurement sources (Quantified at Quantcast, Google Analytics, Nielsen Site Audit, Nielsen NetRatings, comScore Media Metrix, internal server log files, other third party traffic measurement services that use the direct method. No panel data, no Alexa, no Compete etc. will be taken into consideration).

LOTO’s bilingual engine goes to work for China’s media

LOTO Online, a Beijing-based Internet technology company, is expanding to provide bilingual web platform services to China’s major media outlets, such as People’s Daily Online and CCTV.com. LOTO‘s proprietary and unique patented technologies help its clients achieve 3 main goals: (1) increase the amount of original content the clients are able to provide; (2) allow the clients to be the first to publish in English, content that was previously available only in Chinese; and (3) enlarge their circulation amongst foreign readers at home and abroad. Utilizing LOTO’s platform, China’s media can now be originator of its news in English and be the first to publish in English, breaking news which was previously reported only in Chinese. This boost in foreign circulation allows readers all over the world to now get first-hand news, printed in English, from the original Chinese sources.

Recently, People’s Daily Online was swift to report first-hand on the incident related to Microsoft Windows Genuine Advantage, also referred to as the “Black Screen.” People’s Daily Online published a series of English articles that were cited by over 30 English media providers and English content websites. The New York Times Online published an article referencing the original piece published by People’s Daily Online, providing links to the article and also a Chinese blog covering the incident. The People’s Daily articles were also cited by Australian news blog, Bigblog, the Malaysian online media, Daylife.com, the US news website, Congoo.com and the US online news community, Topix.com.

“Now, with this rapid dissemination of news, the viewpoints of China’s netizens and authorities are able to be reflected in foreign Internet circulations almost immediately,” Johnson Jiang, LOTO founder and CEO, said.

LOTO increases translated content and information available to English readers all over the world. This results in greater access to original sources of information that come from different perspectives. A whole new path has emerged for Chinese ideas, opinions, and news to reach the rest of the world. Following the 2008 Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Games and the upcoming Shanghai World Expo and Guangzhou Asian Games (both in 2010), LOTO’s bilingual engine stands to be a powerful online resource for netizens all over the world. It will offer a new perspective on China’s news, culture, traditions and history.

LOTO’s emergence onto the news scene has revolutionized global searching. Previously, news searches using popular engines such as Google and Yahoo would often return only a few search results originating from China’s media. The bulk of results are usually translated articles published by foreign media. LOTO bypasses this step.

“The issue was that much of the searching was, and still is, done using English keywords, while news reported by China’s media, for the most part, was in Chinese. This created a huge gap between information sought after and information actually accessed. But now, with LOTO’s platform, emerges a solution to the problem of worldwide access to information,” Jiang said.

LOTO’s unique technology has removed language barriers between people across the globe. The first and only one of its kind, LOTO’s bilingual engine is based on a human-machine interactive translation system, dynamic translation memory technology and vast, continuously growing databases of keywords, including one dedicated to Chinese news. For the first time ever, netizens are given the ability to search for news outside their native country using only English keywords to return dozens of relevant news reports that have been published by original media outlets such as People’s Daily Online and CCTV.com.

LinkedWords.com – the consolidated traffic for the entire 2008 is expected to be in the 10 Million range

Launched back in the middle of 2006 LinkedWords has essentially proven over the past years to be very effective vehicle in helping web sites get contextually linked on a content area level so that Internet users and smart robots discover their information in context. Since then the contextual platform has rapidly grown from 30,000 uniques per month back in its early days during 2006 to over 1 million unique visitors per month these past months of 2008.

The successful formula seems to be simple yet very effective: the higher the number of small to mid level sites’ content areas contextually linked in LW’s platform – the higher the number of contextually targeted unique visitors shared among those web sites linked in.

Both Google Analytics and Quantcast measured traffic are now reporting for over 1,000,000 unique visitors per month.

Some interesting facts in regard to the site’s traffic and usage to note are:

1) The 400,000 unique visitors’ mark per month was surpassed for first time in April 2007;

2) For the entire 2007 LW ended up with more than 4,500,000 unique visitors to its contextual platform;

3) For the period of 12 months between Apr 2007 and Apr 2008 LW ended up with more than 7,700,000 unique visitors to its contextual platform;

4) The highest number of monthly visitors so far was encountered during the month of April 2008 when the platform had more than 1,300,000 uniques;

This year (2008) was however not all glorious for LinkedWords. During the month of April ’08 their platform has experienced an unprecedented growth in the traffic reaching over 1.3M unique visitors, which resulted in a failure on one of the servers in their cluster causing major downtime. The impacted period was from Friday, April 25 to Friday, May 16, 2008. Millions of unique visitors to LW were said to have been affected. It took them more than 4 months to completely recover both their platform and their reach.

Despite the major downtime that took place during the entire month of May ’08 and had later affected the traffic for a period of several months starting from May and ending on August ’08 considerably slowing it down the anticipated consolidated traffic for the entire 2008 is expected to be in the 10M range, which is double increase from 2007.

How can Web communications address major world problems with something like the efficiency of a biological brain?

The World Mind Network, and its affiliate Friends Beyond Borders, is offering a $5000 Prize for the best Collaborative Mind Map addressing the current financial crisis initiated by the successive failures of financial giants Merrill Lynch, Lehman Brothers, and the AIG Insurance Group.

You don’t need to know how to spell Macroeconomics to know that many factors have led to the current crisis. But traditional industry and academic methods to track these have lacked the complexity and subtlety required to comprehend all of these aspects and their interactions.

Mind Mapping software, which allows users to develop new concepts quickly by brainstorming in non-linear ways, has been around for decades. But collaborative Mind Mapping, epitomized by programs like MindMeister, is fairly recent. It combines the power of social networking and web 2.0 tools with traditional Mind Mapping software to create something like a Human Supercomputer.

The WMN’s contest ends on December 31, and the prize will be awarded on January 15, 2009.

The newly revised World Mind Network website, at worldmindnetwork.net, gives visitors a virtual Time Machine ride from pre-history up to the Middle Ages and beyond.

Many things which occurred in the distant past are still occurring now, and if they are viewable or hearable over the Net, one can enjoy an experience very much like travelling forward in time. Thus, the site has links to an audio feed of the background microwave radiation generated by the Big Bang, live pictures of the sun, webcams showing gorillas, pandas, and bees, and even live video of archaic human lifestyles like monks praying in a monastery.

The site is used in schools in Japan, Macedonia, Kenya, Bhutan, Bolivia, and Holland.

The site has other features which embody its theme of the Internet as ‘World Brain’: a section called ‘Wisdom of the Elders’ which links to short videos of living and dead sages from Carl Jung to Nellie Red Owl; a listing of prestigious online scientific experiments which welcome participation by anyone with a PC, and a group of blogs and forums from Third World countries not normally encountered in the higher ranks of the Blogosphere. There is an index of Fair Trade artisans from Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

The World Mind Network recently completed a project with the Sambaza Group and Friends Beyond Borders in East Africa, which allows cellphone users with unused minutes to ‘donate’ them to a Multimedia ICT education center in Kenya, which can use them as a kind of legal tender (http://www.africahelpguide.com/article.cfm/id/319009)

Next in the works is the ‘Rare Languages Institute’. For all its wonders, the Internet has a certain homogenizing effect on human culture, and one aspect of this is the tendency to standardize English as a lingua franca. The WMN is setting up a series of blogs and social networks on which members can ONLY communicate in Ewa, Manx, Shoshoni, Maltese, West Javanese, and other fascinating but threatened languages.

The founders welcome new proposals which relate to the main theme: How can Web communications address major world problems with something like the efficiency of a biological brain? Contact them at friendsbeyondborders@gmail.com or call Evelyn Machiraju, Peter Woolf or John Toomey at US(626) 230-8862.

Litmos Is An On-Demand Platform To Easily Deliver Training Online

Much like our athletes in Beijing, New Zealand tech companies continue to punch well above their weight on the world stage. You only have to think of success stories like Navman, Xero and Virtual Spectator to appreciate what happens when you take a healthy dose of Kiwi spirit, ingenuity and sheer hard-work and apply it to the software market. LITMOS is the heir apparent to the title “New Zealand’s next big software success”. Currently filming the TV reality show Start-Up TV, is turning heads on the global IT stage. In a nutshell, LITMOS is an on-line training company that seems to have successfully found a way to not only simplify the on-line training environment, but to do so in such a way that engages the end-user and trainer. Most attempts to transfer training on-line stumble because they require huge resources to manage, are impersonal and fiendishly complicated to use. LITMOS has changed all that with a simple interface that does not require additional software installations to run (as a trainer you upload your content and LITMOS takes care of the rest) and that engages users with an interactive experience that fully utilises the web 2.0 environment. LITMOS

Their approach has earned them the opportunity to star in a Start-Up reality show to screen on TVNZ profiling New Zealand start up companies in which start-ups are pitched one against the other to help identify and support the next big thing in the New Zealand software world. The winning company is rewarded with unprecedented public exposure for a new start up, but also the chance to pitch for a global market launch in Silicon Valley, USA.

From an initial line up of over 100 hopefuls, LITMOS has made it through to the final rounds and is in with a chance to go for the big prize. Already it has signed up new customers with Telnet, Safe Access New Zealand, and Learning Takeaway utilising their services, but they will only know if that is enough to impress the judges on September 11th when they make the final decisions.

LITMOS founder and CEO, Rich Chetwynd: “It’s an exciting time for LITMOS. Participating in the TV show has forced the pace, made us accelerate the market validation stages of our development, and given us the kick we needed to push on. We’ve known from the outset that our idea was a good one, and had an intuitive feel for what would be needed to make on-line training a serious alternative to face to face training. Being in the programme has forced us to address a lot of the execution issues that turn the good idea into a good business. We’ve had access to fabulous advice from our mentors and have really focused our thinking along the way. Regardless of whether we win the top prize, the work that we have done to get this far has put us in a great position to achieve our market place success.”

Whether LITMOS does indeed win first prize will be determined by the panel of judges that include some of the top names in the NZ software industry – Richard MacManus (ReadWriteWeb); Tim Norton (PlanHQ); and Andrew Hamilton (The ICEHOUSE). The progress of the competing entries will be tracked during the filming of the TV show, with the winner announced when Start-Up TV is due to go to air on TV One in October. One thing’s for sure, LITMOS is yet another bright example of exactly the kind of world leading initiatives that young Kiwi software firms are capable of. The success of and their contempories will play a critical role in defining the shape of the New Zealand economy into the future. LITMOS

New web 2.0 site allows students to publish, protect, share, and earn from their High School and College papers

New website allows students to publish, protect, share, and earn from their High School and College papers. Students spend countless hours researching and writing, it has always been done for education and a degree. Now that effort is being turned in to spending money.

The launch of a new Student community website allows students to publish their papers, while maintaining full ownership of their work.

Until now, students wrote a paper or essay, turned it in for grading, it sat on their computer hard drive until that hard drive crashed. Students would say “Well, it stinks, but I got the grade, and I graduated”. Now students can archive their work, share it with other students, and earn some serious gas money.

The writing that High School and College students do can now act as an annuity that pays them for life. “The work students do is more than busy work, it’s valuable research that can be used by students and teachers alike year after year” says Co-Founder of PayPerz.com, Richard Wohl. “Our student community allows students to archive their work, not only is the service free, but they get paid a share of the advertising revenue generated by their work”.

Modeled after some very successful self-publishing websites, PayPerz.com is specifically geared to College and High School Students. “Covering hundreds of subjects and growing daily, our indexed and searchable database is written to make the most of search engine technology, as more students participate in PayPerz.com, the amount of information will give our website an incredible amount of unpublished, unique content.” One technology advantage over other similar sites, PayPerz.com allows users to upload directly from a Word Documents, no retyping needed. Although an advances text editor is available to edit or add to existing documents. PayPerz.com also allows students to add unlimited pictures and video to their research. The site still in beta testing is open to all High School and College students in the United States.

PayPerz.com protects students from being plagiarized by quickly indexing their work, this allows the tools currently in use by Universities around the country to ensure content turned in is unique.

Currently PayPerz.com is working with cost-per-action advertisers in order to protect it’s partners from click fraud. PayPerz.com and it’s student publishers only get paid when a click leads to an action. This helps PayPerz to ensure it keeps its advertisers happy, it discourages community members from clicking for the sake of clicking. The real value of the site is in the un-indexed research and information it will provide.

Once out of Beta, PayPerz.com will be paying it’s top student publisher a $5000 cash prize, now that’s some serious college spending money.

Push-To-Talk Over Wi-Fi for Motorola Warehouse Devices

Radicomm, Inc., a Motorola PartnerSelect ISV (Independent Software Vendor), has released QuickTalk, a voice communication system for rugged mobile scanning devices like the Motorola MC9090 and MC70. Using QuickTalk, stockroom managers and other supervisors can talk to any worker in their warehouse, factory, or distribution center with the push of a button. All voice communication takes place over the worker’s scanning device, but because of QuickTalk‘s seamless design the worker never has to leave his current application to talk back.

“Other vendors tend to only target supervisor PDAs like the MC70. Of course we support those devices too, but running QuickTalk seamlessly on an MC9090 is where Radicomm really separates itself from the competition,” explains Brad Radaker, founder and CEO of Radicomm.

QuickTalk is a complete warehouse communication system that not only allows supervisors to call out to their workers, but also allows workers to directly contact their supervisors if that’s what the company desires. Using the QuickTalk Administrator program, organizations can create Role Visibility Relationships to define who is allowed to contact whom within each site. Site Trust Relationships may also be created to enable managers in one site to contact their counterparts in another site.

A fully functional 30 day trial of QuickTalk is available from the Radicomm web site at www.radicomm.com. For more information please call 1-888-919-9931 or email sales@radicomm.com.
