Why AppHero Raised $1.8 Million

On today’s Morning Media Menu, Social Times staff writer Devon Glenn talked about why AppHero raised $1.8 million for its app discovery service.

Here’s more about the service: “AppHero looks at things like your age, gender, and location as well as likes and shares.  Right now, the app doesn’t read your status updates, although Satok told TechCrunch that this is in the works. The system continues to fine-tune your recommendations with each app that you download. As with Pandora and Netflix, you can train AppHero to give you better results by clicking the “not interested” button if you don’t like the apps it recommends.”

On the show, Glenn also discussed an award-winning architecture project that converted a Wal-Mart into a library.
