Here is the 2nd edition of Trak.in AppWire, a place where we feature mobile apps that have been recently launched by Indians and for the Indians. Since we published Trak.in AppWire last week, we got quite a few mails asking for their apps to be featured. However, we would like to point out few criteria’s based on which we make our decision to feature an app.

First and foremost, the app has be new – It should not be more than 10 days old on the market. Yes, it is fine if it has been launched on one platform earlier and you are launching on another newly.

Secondly, as we feature not more than 5-6 apps in one edition, we have discretion of choosing the best ones which we think that our readers might like.

Trak.in AppWire’s aim is to make sure that our readers are made aware of newly launched apps that they may find appealing.
