With Bitcasa, users can easily backup and consolidate all of their files and media into one Infinite Drive. The Bitcasa Infinite Drive acts like an external drive that users are already familiar with, except that it never runs out of space and is accessible from anywhere and any device.  @Bitcasa

Referly makes it easy for anyone to recommend products they love, and when those recommendations result in a sale they get paid. Earned money for sharing your expertise online has never been easier.   @referly

Bugsnag is the best way to find and fix crashes in your web  and mobile apps. Crashes always happen, even in the best developer's code.

Word Carnivale is a new iOS social game that pits you against your friends in Best-of-Three contests to find the most high scoring words--with the added dimension of balloon letters that pop off the screen as you find words.   Word Carnivale isn’t about trying to find obscure words--it’s all about about speed and the strategy of getting new letters to form new combinations.    @PlayScreen
