Windows 8 Now Featuring FlipToast Metro, a Cutting-Edge Social Experience

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2012) - W3i (, a leader in monetization and user acquisition services for freemium apps, announces that FlipToast, one of the few social apps available for Windows 8, now has its own dedicated tile on Windows 8.

Prior to distribution through Windows 8 FlipToast grew to nearly a million, highly engaged, monthly active PC and Mac users. As Windows 8 rolls out, MAU's are expected to quadruple. "Taking FlipToast from conception to nearly a million users and now being the first social app in the Windows 8 Marketplace has been surreal for me. We're super excited to be partnering with Microsoft to help users socialize their metro experience!" exclaims Shivani Khanna, Product Manager, W3i.

FlipToast is an engaging social app with a unique solution -- an always-on connection to users' social network. The FlipToast app allows users to access their social network -- Facebook, Twitter, YouTube -- without being in the browser. Users can chat, drag-and-drop photos, invite and recommend games to friends while playing those games and more.

FlipToast is the first app to use a system Windows 8 calls "contracts" that allows any two apps to communicate enabling FlipToast to share links or videos from other apps.
