MySpace gets cooler
For the first time, the Gallery will be promoted and fully available to MySpace users, meaning that all consumer facing Application Gallery components will be live:
- The MySpace.com home page will feature an Application Gallery icon at the top of the page, so users can easily be directed to the Gallery.
- Users will have one-click access to the Application Gallery from their home page through their individual ‘Control Panels’.
- The Application Gallery splash page will be launched with featured apps in an effort to further promote applications and support developers.
Since the public beta launch of the Application Gallery in March, many MySpace users have already began enjoying and engaging with applications during the site’s beta phase. With more than 1,000 approved applications available, in a variety of growing categories ranging from music, politics and causes, quizzes and polls, video and more, the MySpace Application Gallery has provided more than 2.1MM installs to the MySpace community.
All approved applications will have their own profile page, similar to MySpace user pages, so users can easily “friend” any approved MySpace application. The Application Gallery will be accessible to all international MySpace users in their native language.
