Meldium App Trends, September 2014


A new month means a new edition of Meldium App Trends! Let's go right to the data:

Our most popular four apps retain their lead, with a slight improvement in popularity for AWS and Gmail, and slight declines for Twitter and Mailchimp. The biggest winners this month are four very different apps:

  • Lucidchart lets you generate diagrams of all types in your browser, from UML to circuits to wireframes.
  • Code School is an awesome way to learn to code online. We previously featured Envy Labs, the makers of Code School, in an edition of The Web Setup - glad to see them gaining in popularity on Meldium.
  • DoorDash delivers high-quality restaurant food straight to you. As of this writing, they're available in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and Boston - give it a try and get your first delivery free.
  • Gengo is a translation service powered by people, with over 12,000 translators available to help you localize your content.

Each month we highlight apps that are new to Meldium - sometimes they are brand new startups, other times established businesses for which we've recently added SSO support. Just like our trending apps, we see a wide variety in the newcomers list:

  • Distelli gives you a single place to deploy code to AWS, Rackspace, Linode, and other cloud providers.
  • Namify sells branded goods to help your organization make an impact at your next conference or meetup.
  • NextDayFlyers can handle all sorts of online printing needs: from posters, to business cards, to custom calendars.
  • Aptible is a recently-launched private cloud that meets HIPAA security standards.

Finally, in our monthly spotlight we look at the most popular social apps on Meldium. I probably don't have to explain what any of these are, but we see that Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram all dominate the list. Interestingly, Pinterest is the only one of these apps gaining in popularity on Meldium.
