Add Gamification and Messaging to Your App

Many successful apps allow users to interact, compete or build social relationships. Features like an in-app chat, a friend system or leaderboards help to increase app retention and engagement rates. This applies for games as well as apps. The SocialView makes it easy to add such features. It takes advantage of ready-made services and also offers e.g. user profiles & authentication, cloud storage and much more.
