Want an outlet where you can connect with other mobile phone developers and application junkies around the world? Well, there's an app for that. Or more appropriately, there's AppBoy.

"AppBoy was developed to help developers get their apps discovered and to help users navigate through the thousands of available apps to find the ones they like," said Thorren Koopmans, the director of operations for the online startup.It is a unique platform that showcases apps from across all major platforms, not just one. So users can see how the variety of content ranges between the iPhone, Blackberry, and Android handsets. Additionally, there are incentives for people whose apps become a hit on AppBoy.

Developers will share in the website's profits for apps that are sold through it, and anyone who creates an app that people are asking for will be awarded $250. "We already have a great value proposition for both developers and end users, but we're just getting started. There are big updates coming that are going to make AppBoy that much better," added Koopmans.

AppBoy is still in beta form but is already highly functional.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
