February 7, 2012 in Lifestyle
[prMac.com] New York, New York - Apalon, the company behind the #1 customization tool on the App Store, is happy to share with the world the news on the impressive performance its flagship application has been showing. Pimp Your Screen, the app that makes every iOS device screen worth its impeccable setting, is now ranking in the TOP25 overall charts in many countries including US, Canada, UK, Germany, France and more. It has been featured by Apple as one of the best selling apps in App Store Rewind 2011.
As an additional proof of its ultimate success, the app has been recently acknowledged as the Best Wallpaper App 2011 according to the Best App Ever Awards held by the 148Apps network. This reputable contest gathered over one and a half million votes from users all over the world, and becoming a winner in one of the categories has been a true honor for the Apalon team.
Jeff Scott, Editor and Founder of 148Apps Network stated: "The Best App Ever Awards were started four years ago to spot and highlight the iOS apps that users admire most. The applications are nominated and voted on by the users worldwide, which ensures the fairer system than simple downloads count. The winners are the apps that people really use and love. Pimp Your Screen is a perfect example of an app loved in its category. "
When Apalon first came up with the idea of Pimp Your Screen, they had the kind of tool in mind that would give users a handful of unique content easily accessible right on their devices. The team of professional designers worked day and night to craft every image and satisfy even the pickiest user. Right after launch users could enjoy App Shelves, Icon Skins, Neon Combos and Home Screens. Due to the careful selection of images and high ecstatic standards set by Apalon, what pleased users' eye in the app always looked great on the screen of their device. The new content keeps coming every single day, allowing endless customization possibilities on a daily basis.
Subsequently, the application was upgraded with the new features and constantly improved. Pimp Your Screen has been enhanced with Lock Screen Maker and Home Screen Maker. With the Lock Screen Maker it's easy to create unique Lock Screens that will be displayed right after a user hits the Home Button when the device is locked. The Home Screen Maker makes it easy to create custom App Shelves and Icon Skins on one of the Home Screen images available in this module. Users can also apply shelves and skins to their own photos to make their wallpapers truly unique.
Apart from that, there are wide sharing possibilities including posting to Facebook, Twitter, emailing or even gifting the app.
"Users love Pimp Your Screen. And it's the best proof that we have succeeded with the idea of bringing new ways of customization to iOS devices. We also keep up with he latest trends and only the best content becomes part of the app. I would like to thank everyone from 148Apps as well, for running such a great contest and letting users discover great apps on the App Store." - said Peter Melnikov, VP of Apalon.
