Managing mobile apps has become big, billion-dollar business, and a number of startups are rolling up their sleeves to be part of it. One is AppGratis, which closed a Series A round in mid-January and claims upwards of $1 million in monthly revenue. Its hook is a simple one: help users find mobile applications they want and need more easily in an increasingly crowded field of apps and app stores. The company works with more than 6,000 developers.
