Our third meetup was dedicated to user acquisition strategies for your mobile startup. With hundreds of thousands of apps competing for the user attention in the mobile stores it is a tough challenge to make your app user base grow: how to share it with the world, how and where to find a sustainable source of customers.
David Truong and Martin Shen shared their experience on the customer acquisition and growth. You can check their presentation under the cut.
Our next meetup will be in one month so please join the community on Meetup.com to stay updated!

Today we are announcing Goro, an Android library for organizing your asynchronous tasks in queues.
When developing Android apps, we often want to ensure that certain operations are executed in the correct order.
