i-Free Innovations’ CandyApps Delivers Fresh New Apps Daily To Android Users

(St. Petersburg, Russia) – June 14, 2012 – i-Free Innovations, a Russian mobile applications and games developer and publisher, today introduced CandyApps for Android, a free to download discovery and recommendation platform that makes the process of discovering Android apps easier, faster and more accurate.  Featuring a proprietary app rating system that takes into account an app’s release date, current user ratings, and an extensive tagging system, CandyApps helps to discover not only the newest and most relevant apps, but also a wide array of other content such as videos, reviews, screenshots and user comments for each app, all of which is retrieved from Google Play. 

CandyApps is available for free via Google Play at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ifree.candyapps

Updated every two hours, CandyApps displays the newest and most popular Android apps right on the user’s Smartphone (lower rated or older apps are visible by scrolling down or to the right respectively) and continually monitors for discounts and price drops, ensuring users will always know the best time to make a purchase. If searching for apps that matter the most to them, users can easily add filters to search for a particular category or tag to bring up more relevant results. 

With more than 30 app “collections” where all apps are hand-picked, reviewed, and classified in categories by CandyApps editors, CandyApps allows users to get the most from their Smartphones in a large variety of topics - from best racing games and camera apps, to apps for music enthusiasts, etc., all without users having to waste time looking for the apps themselves.  CandyApps also offers users a comprehensive “Reviews” section which reveals app reviews from experts and editors, news about the Android world and other interesting stuff for Android fans. 

Other great features include:

-          Favorites menu: users can see all of their favorite applications and reviews.

-          Download buttons: accessible throughout the app so users can download the application directly from Google Play.-

-          Share button: allows users to share their downloaded applications with friends via Facebook, gmail, SMS, Twitter and others.

-          Price drop info: the apps “sales” section represents recent price-drops and will always keep users updated on upcoming discounts ahead of time. 

-          Android widgets: helps keep users updated of new apps, reviews, price drops, etc.

“When you combine the strength of our proprietary app rating system and our editorial team sorting, reviewing and comparing hundreds of apps on a daily basis, users can trust that only the best apps will appear in their search results,” said Kirill Petrov, Managing Director, i-Free Innovations.  “This makes CandyApps the ultimate way to find apps in one easy-to-use Android app catalog.”
