NEW YORK, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- appsbar – appsbar.com, the free-to-use resource for creating and publishing Smartphone apps, neared its one-year anniversary with the announcement that it has grown to a community of more than 90,000 do-it-yourself app builders who helped the tool become the largest Google Play development community in the world. In less than one year, appsbar has become the leading resource to build and publish Android Apps, iPhone Apps and Windows Mobile Apps, and the community has helped small businesses, musicians, and even the least tech-savvy among us get more than 9 million launches of the apps they built themselves, said appsbar founder Scott Hirsch. "Let's face it, appsbar is awesome. The app world was truly ready for this first all-free way to build and publish tablet and Smartphone-ready apps," Hirsch said. "In just twelve months our community has proved that apps can be device agnostic, robust, and easy to make. With our communities' on-going support, we're going to keep developing and refining the best tool for building the best free apps." appsbar users have built and published an astounding 11,000 Android apps, driving appsbar to become the single largest Android developer featured in Google Play since appsbar launched in April 2011, when it immediately became the preferred tool for developing Android apps that are published to Google Play and shared across Android phones. While appsbar has steadily grown since it was first introduced, it has seen the most incredible activity in the first few months of 2012, with an astounding 78 percent growth. appsbar continues to make waves across Google Play by delivering the power for anyone to make an app as way to engage customers, fans, and friends. The company is matching Google's growing dominance in the app world, which is driven by its popularity among developers and consumers who both resoundingly welcome free-to-make and free-to-download apps.
