We just wanted to take a quick moment and congratulate SongPop for their amazing debut this year! They were recently named by Facebook as the #1 game in 2012 among some very stiff competition. Since launching the game in 2012, FreshPlanet has amassed more than 60 million users and secured the honor of the #5 game downloaded in the Apple App Store this year.
We’re happy that FreshPlanet choose Adobe Gaming technologies, including Adobe AIR, to deliver this wildly popular game. For more on SongPop, check out our previous blog post, which links to their full Adobe Success Story.
We’ll be showcasing lots of other great games in future posts as well as some holiday-themed ones to get you in the spirit. Stay tuned!
Originally created by The Recording Academy and its ad agency of record, TBWA\Chiat\Day, and now available in the Intel AppUp center, the MusicMapper is an Adobe AIR application that allows users to tag songs and stories to physical locations. By displaying these tags on the Music Is Life Is Music microsite, people can experience each other’s musical journeys in a unique and intimate way while celebrating the songs that have had significance in one’s life and the places connected to those songs.
The app has great traction already and is helping build excitement leading up to this Sunday’s Grammy Awards show. And like all good social apps, its value extends past Sunday’s event, as music fans are encouraged to share stories and interact with each other on an ongoing basis.
For developers, MusicMapper is another example of how Adobe’s InMarket program enables apps to reach millions of users through a variety of app stores across devices. Using InMarket, developers have one centralized portal for publishing, managing and monetizing apps across multiple app stores.
