Social Networking is not solely the realm of Facebook and Twitter. There are networks that are more niche-based, personal networks that reflect smaller, more focused communities than you might find on those well branded sites.
Appcatch was launched in June of 2012 as the first exclusively free marketplace for Android, iOS, and HTML5 apps and since its inception the site has become home to a variety of networks that launch from its Social Networking category.
Networks can be as defined and focused as a classroom, a Kiwanis chapter, or even a circle of friends.
Blended Family was one of the first social networking apps on appcatch.com and the app represents a niche, but one that is vast and far reaching. A blended family is the modern term for step families and represents nearly twenty million households across the country.
Blended Family reaches its constituency through a weekly radio show called "Blended Family Today." The program is fed through the app via a "Listen Live" button. Users of the app can submit step family related questions or comments to be discussed during the show.
The app also offers free podcasts, coupons for family work shops, and links to connect with the group through the more traditional social networks at Facebook and Twitter.
When the team behind appcatch.com first developed its DIY app builder at appsbar.com, they had no idea the free app building tool would become a social network of its own. Over 160,000 users have logged on to date and produced more than 10 million app launches.
That group stays connected through various blogs and forums, discussing their app experiences and brainstorming new ideas for mobile applications.
Appcatch initially served as free app market for users of the DIY app builder appsbar.com before expanding to include all app developers who wish to see their apps in the world-wide distribution channel. By making appcatch open to all app developers and app lovers, the company has furthered its goal of truly democratizing the app building and app user experience.
As you have probably guessed, the Social Networking category on appcatch.com is diverse and covers everything from religion to politics, athletic clubs, and art showcases. It is truly a great cross section of ideas and ingenuity, the ideals that are at the heart of appcatch.com's success.
