Introducing AppRaisin – a new discovery service for Windows apps

AdDuplex is all about empowering indie Windows developers and today we are happy to unveil the next step in our quest to do just that. Please welcome AppRaisin – a mobile-first service aimed at solving the biggest problem in modern app stores – app discovery. AppRaisin helps Windows enthusiasts stay on top of the latest releases, major updates and special offerings, while, at the same time, helping independent developers like yourself get much needed exposure to potential customers.

Users decide what news rise to the top by “raising” the apps they like and ignoring the noise. This way enthusiasts get to make sure that top of the crop apps get the attention they deserve and less active users get a curated list of just the best app news.

The system works similar to other social news sites like Digg, Reddit, Hacker News or Product Hunt – developers and enthusiasts post latest app news while wider community votes on them to raise the most noteworthy items up the chart. The rank of each item is based on multiple parameters including time – meaning that fresher news raise to the top while older favorites gradually slide down. This way users get a constantly fresh, curated list of new apps and important updates and your indie apps and games get a chance to rise above the corporate behemoths occupying official store charts.

Today we are releasing the first public version of the app on both Windows 10 Desktop and Mobile (it’s a Universal Windows App). This release includes basic functionality enabling news submission, rating, sharing and more. A bunch of new features is underway, including more social stuff like user pages, comments and other, but the very core that should bring back the joy of discovering great new apps and games is already there.

You can also follow us on Twitter at @AppRaisinHQ like us on Facebook or subscribe to our newsletter at to get the latest gems discovered on AppRaisin and news about the app itself.
And, please, help us spread the word by sharing AppRaisin with your friends on social media and offline. Thank you very much!
