Description: Mobile apps don’t have a natural existence on the Web. To experience a mobile app, one has to download it on their mobile device, which requires effort and patience. Even after one discovers a great mobile app, there is no easy way to share it with friends. For instance, even if ‘you like’ an android app while playing it and your friends see it on your Facebook wall, they would still need to download it on their Android device (if they own one) to experience it. This process is broken and exactly what AppSurfer solves for. AppSurfer will bring Android experience to the web accessible from anywhere. That is, you can try android apps on the web itself before actually downloading to the device.
