Singapore-based startup MobileApps.com, which launched its mobile app discovery platform to some fanfare last year, recently decided to call it quits and re-focus on ‘rich media ads’.
The company had raised $400,000 in seed funding from Tokyo-based mobile company I-FREEK.
This morning, founder and CEO Alvin Koay published a press release, announcing that MobileApps.com has now effectively been terminated and that the domain name was put up for sale for the relatively high price of $1 million (a deal would also include the domain name MobileAds.com, to be fair).
According to this report, Koay acquired the domain for $10,000 back when Apple launched its App Store – you do the math.
Do you think MobileApps and MobileAds.com are worth $1 million, combined?
