The Google Apps Marketplace – 1 year and 300 apps later
The Google Apps Marketplace – 1 year and 300 apps laterWednesday, March 09, 2011 at 8:00 AMToday the Google Apps Marketplace turns one! In the past year, we’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with many of the best developers on the web, working to make it easy for you to extend Google Apps with great apps for your businesses or school. Our selection has grown from 50 to over 300 apps, and includes great apps for CRM, project management, customer support, finance, email marketing, and more. You’ve told us we’re on to something…what else have we learned? In a nutshell:
- Web app adoption is accelerating across every business function and need
- You value web apps that work together — what we call integrated apps
- It’s harder than ever to evaluate and select the right app, given the number of new apps coming to market, and their increasing specialization
With these learnings firmly in mind, we’re more excited than ever about our mission with Apps Marketplace, and are working on features to make it even easier for you to discover, evaluate and deploy web apps that integrate out of the box. Beyond single sign-on and quick access through our universal navigation bar, our best Marketplace apps synchronize data and offer integrated features designed to keep you and your users productive as you move closer to 100% web.
