Welcome to AppKaiju!
AppKaiju is a friendly monster that searches the web for the best apps!
The site finds all of the goodies with crawlers that reside on 7 servers spread across the globe. They're named after Seven Dwarfs from Snow White, by their apparent personalities. Doc is the most reliable, while Dopey is constantly getting into trouble. Grumpy throws random tantrums and errors at me. Together they are shepherded by AppKaiju's primary logic; forever seeking new apps for Apple platforms around the clock. The crawlers were also written in Python.
When the site was originally conceived, it was intended to be funded by app sale commissions; like similar sites before it. Halfway through development Apple announced that they would be ending the commissions on apps. I was already pretty far in the hole, having paid for all of the servers for a full year. I figured I might as well finish what I started. The site now depends on ad revenue and support from the community! If you love AppKaiju please support it to help pay for these servers!
