App Builder AppMakr Acquired by Infinite Monkey
Singapore-based Do-It-Yourself Mobile App publishing platform Infinite Monkey (which, I don't care what anybody says, is the best name of a company ever) announced recently that it has acquired its biggest competitor AppMakr.
With the acquisition, Infinite Monkeys now serves over half a million consumers, small businesses and community groups in 60+ countries. AppMakr was developed by Socialize, which was in turn acquired by ShareThis in March 2013.
Infinite Monkeys, which offers a similar Drag-and-Drop Mobile App Builder, will continue to support all Free-Plan customers of the AppMakr platform. Any customer who previously signed up for AppMakr’s $79/month ad-free plan will be offered a 2-months free upgrade promotion to migrate their apps to the Infinite Monkeys platform, which is available at just $9/month. All customer support lines and forums will be managed by the support team at Infinite Monkeys.
“We have always had a lot of respect for AppMakr and the incredibly loyal following they have," said Jay Shapiro, co-founder and CEO of Infinite Monkeys. "We were delighted to work with ShareThis to create a workable solution that lets everyone win. This is just another example of why ShareThis is one of the best social marketing companies out there for small businesses. They’ve shown their commitment to the customers today, for sure.”
