appssavvy founder and CEO Chris Cunningham said:

It is tremendously exciting and gratifying to start a company with a unique offering in the rapidly growing social-media space and steer that success to the levels we’ve accomplished in such a short period of time. Tripling in size is a direct result of the opportunity and demand to bring together developers and publishers of social-media applications, whether they are on Facebook or other social networks, and increasingly on the iPhone, with brands and agencies.
