Company Summary

Search works if you know what you're looking for, but what if you don't know what you're looking for? Mapsaurus displays the similarities between apps to build an interactive map of the app market. We make it intuitive, fun, and easy to explore the app world in the direction of your tastes. We launched our beta product a month ago, and with no advertising, we have seen over 35,000 downloads and delivered over 22,000 downloads of other apps.
