FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Raw Apps Launches Free "Tweet to Download" Viral Unlock Service for Digital Publishers
Miami, July 28th 2012 - Raw Apps announced today the launch of a new social payment system called BuckTweets which allows digital publishers to offer their content in exchange for a tweet or post to Facebook.
Tweet and post to unlock services like BuckTweets convert social recommendations into social currency. By offering users access to their digital files in exchange for a recommendation either through Twitter or Facebook, publishers can now increase their social presence among a targetted demographic in an organic manner.
"It's a win win for the publisher and their audience" says Antonio Otalvaro, founder of Raw Apps the development team behind BuckTweets. "Content owners love it for the viral marketing benefits and their audience loves it because it's a productive way to express their support at no cost."
BuckTweets was originally developed for the company's own internal use as a way to promote their digital content. "We received a lot of inquiries from other publishers who were interested in using our system so we simply decided to add an interface and roll out to the public as a free service" added Otalvaro.
BuckTweets is already undergoing several upgrades which will allow users to login and review analytics related to the Tweet to Download buttons they've generated. The company is also working on a library for Android and iOS developers who are interested in allowing their users to level up or access more content through Tweet to Unlock mechanisms.
To create a BuckTweet button publishers can go to :

If you didn’t already know, one of the really cool things about the Andriod platform is it’s openness and ability to download and install 3rd party applications. In this post I’ll explain two of the methods you can use to go about installing independent apk’s to your own device.
A. Directly from your phone
The first and easiest would be to go directly to RawApps.com on your Andriod phone. You’ll automatically be rerouted to a mobile friendly version of the our site and land on the “Apk Download” section. Select the application you want to download and click on “Download Now”. From there the download and installation process will happen automatically. It’s that simple!
Before you download:
In order to install 3rd party apps to your phone you’ll have to change the settings on your device to “Allow Unknown Sources”. This process will allow you to install content on your phone that does not come directly from the Android Market.
When your .apk has finished downloading you’ll receive a notification in your status bar. Slide the notification tray down and tap on the item that has the name of the file you’ve just downloaded and the installation will begin automatically.
B. From your computer
If you are reading this post or accessing our download library from a regular desktop, get your phone ready! Each one of the apk download pages has a QR code that correspondends to that application’s unique download ID. Scan the QR code with your phone and it will bring up the download URL on your mobile device. Tap on the URL and the apk will automatically start downloading to your mobile. (You can also scan the QR code below).
Once the apk has finished downloading, slide your notification tray down and tap on the name of the file you’ve just downloaded. From there your application will install automatically.
Remember that installing 3rd party apps using this second method will also require you to change your phone’s settings to “Allow Uknown Sources”.
C. Transfer from your PC to Mobile
I’m not even going to get into this one! There are plenty of posts throughout the web that detail this process. Regardless, it’s extremely cumbersome! I highly recommend using one of the other methods above.
