AppTracker Deluxe, a unique, innovative mode of tracking App Store sales
Yelverton, Devon, United Kingdom – Handyman Interactive today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of AppTracker Deluxe 1.1, an update to their price tracking app for iOS devices. AppTracker Deluxe allows users to search for and start tracking the price of their favourite App Store applications. Different to most sales apps, AppTracker lets the user specifically search for an app and allows them to input a target price. Not only does AppTracker then double up as a directory of all the apps the user finds interesting, showing price fluctuations too, but also enables the user to receive a push notification should an app reach its target price.
In today’s market, websites and apps trying to provide the consumer with App Store deals, are abundant. However, we often found that they only provided specific applications, and more often than not, for a very limited time. Therefore, the consumer had very little choice in which deals they found and were very unlikely to catch a deal they were actually interested in. It was with this problem in mind that Handyman Interactive began work on AppTracker.
AppTracker Deluxe allows users to search for their favourite apps on the App Store and then set a target price at which they are happy to purchase the app. Our on-the-go servers constantly check the app store prices against the user’s target prices, waiting for a change. If the price is reached or even surpassed, our server sends a push notification to the user, alerting them to the change. From within our app the user can then buy the application through the App Store.
We love the idea of the user starting to track several apps on-the-go, with their mobile, forgetting all about them and continuing with their life; while one by one they decrease in price amongst the various developer sales pleasantly surprising the user when they’re alerted. We encourage the building of a small library of apps which interest the user, and so have provided features to help make the user experience easier and simpler, including sorting options for their tracking list and colour coding.
With the just released AppTracker 1.1 we completely redesigned the application adding in our own custom user interface, making the app even clearer than before. It also added even more user features, such as social media integration, App Store windows built directly into the app and a tutorial.
