As developers you can upload your apk(installable) on our platform. In turn you will get an embeddable app widget on which your users can experience(run) your app.
You can embed this widget on any web page.
Thus giving your users an actual app experience would really create a stir. Even your user could embed your app widget on their blogs, personal websites or on facebook, thus becoming free distributors of your app.
If the app widget is taking a lot of space on your blog, we have a surf it button which you can embed onto your page. On clicking the surf it button, the app widget will pop-up giving your users a chance to experience your app.
App-surfer currently supports
We will support other features in the near future:
AppSurfer does not support:
App sharability process is broken and very tedious in todays scenario. In the current scenario,
If you note closely, this is more complicated than a simple web-link indirection. The user has to download the app from the market FIRST before trying it. The complications reduce the further sharing of your app.
App surfer solves this process very elegantly. It allows the developer to embed the app-surfer widget or the surf it button on any web page. The app can be tried there itself and shared instantly. Thus making app sharability easier and effective, which results in more visibility and more downloads.(For details of how to use appsurfer widget and surf it button refer to question 1.)
When you use appsurfer to showcase your app, you get a unique universal web link for your app. Using that web link you can access your app from all devices from iphones, tablets, ipads, desktops, windows phones etc. Thus you get a greater social reach all together.
The actual take away from this is that even non android users can promote your application by trying them on their devices and sharing them. So your social reach increases by leaps and bounds.
Google maps are licenced by Google. AppSurfer can’t use that library without express permission from Google. We are working on getting our platform to be compatible with Google’s guidelines, after which AppSurfer will have Google maps support.
