|Description||Mobile App Search|
Xyo is a Berlin-based app search startup providing its users and partners with smart app search and advertising. While apps have become the gateway to mobile internet, users are forced to navigate app stores that behave like old directories of the 1990s. The effect is that only a few hundred apps find sizeable audiences and the vast majority stay undiscovered. Xyo aims to change this by taking app search out of the rigid stores, teaming up with partners from the mobile industry and serving intelligent, contextual app results to users.
Xyo was founded in October 2010 by Matthaus Krzykowski, Zoe Adamovicz and Marcin Rudolf. The service is available for Android, iOS and Windows Phone on xyo.net and on the company partners’ portals, app stores and devices.
Xyo is backed by Rick Thompson’s Signia Venture Partners, Gameforge founder and Flaregames CEO Klaas Kersting and SoundCloud co-founder Eric Wahlforss.
