We’re announcing a new type of post on Web.AppStorm today: Quick Look. These short application overviews will give you a description, a few screenshots, and basic information about a particular piece of software. They’re sponsored, so developers pay a small fee to have their app featured in a Quick Look post.
At the end of each post we’ll have a poll for readers to vote in. If you like what you see, you can vote for us to write a full (completely unbiased) review of the software in question.
It’s a great way to find out about new applications you haven’t come across before and a great way for developers to get the word out about their new app. We’ll have a few of these posts appearing soon so you’ll be able to see how they work.
Quick Look posts will be in addition to our regular publishing schedule here at AppStorm. So you’ll continue getting the same great reviews, roundups and guides, plus you’ll now get Quick Looks at new and interesting apps!
We’re very excited by the prospect of showcasing more apps, finding AppStorm a new revenue source to help us grow, and giving developers a promotional tool to market their work. We’d love to hear your feedback on this addition, so feel free to leave a comment or send us an email.

Based on feedback from our wonderful readers, we’ve decided to slightly change our content formatting and broaden some of the subjects we’ll cover. As already shown, we’ll also begin providing screencasts along-side applicable posts, such as how-tos and reviews, when possible.
More info. on the content changes after the jump.
Generally when we do a giveaway, the winners are announced the following week. Last week’s Myows giveaway was so popular we had to close the comments in just 24 hours! In addition to that, Myows generously gave away 100 paid accounts, which would’ve made for an interesting giveaway announcement (that’s a lot of names!). So, to cap off this week, I’ll be doing something a little different.
While pondering ideas to cap off the week, I thought it would be a good chance to take a look back at the popular posts over the last couple weeks as well as some of the upcoming posts and contests. Also, I would never leave you guys without a tasty morsel of contesty-goodness if I could help it — so read on to see what goodies you can grab from CodeCanyon.
For some, the New Year has already begun. For others, it’s only a few hours away. Not only are we starting a new decade but Web.AppStorm has very recently transitioned to a new editor. For Web.AppStorm, 2010 is going to be a very new year and a fantastic one at that!
As we say goodbye to 2009, it’s a good opportunity to reflect on the progress Web.AppStorm has made as well as where it should be going in the new year. Thank you all for your continued support this year. Moving into 2010 I would like to ensure we are providing the content you all are craving. For this reason, I’d like to outline a few things I’d like to do in 2010 and also get some feedback.
In the last three years our Envato Marketplaces (FlashDen, ThemeForest, GraphicRiver, AudioJungle and VideoHive) have grown like gangbusters, with big communities, huge libraries of files and lots of activity. So when we set out to redesign them earlier this year everyone on the team knew it was going to be big. What we didn’t realise was HOW big it would eventually get! Today it gives me great pleasure to show you …
