It allows the bookmark of a list of favorite mobile destinations and favorite app brands. It’s basically a mobile favorites playlist. Where new favorite apps are discovered by comparing similar playlists. When a new app is added, our app creates a notification to inform anyone with a similar list of apps. This helps with new apps discovery.&nbsp;<br>A few persons try out a new app to see if it has traction.
