I really like Raptr’s service; it helps me stay connected to all my friends list when I’m on the computer and lets me see who all is playing what. For people not in the know, Raptr is a social platform that tracks different gaming stats and helps keep you connected to friends. Raptr has been adding around 750,000 new users each month and recently passed six million users which is quite impressive. They’ve also secured money from investors that will help them grow, add new features, and overall build up their gaming community. Many major outlets use the information Raptr collects to see what gamers are playing and how the latest trends are panning out.
“We’re excited to be backed by DAG Ventures, Tenaya Capital, and Accel Partners as we continue to grow Raptr into the preeminent gaming community worldwide,” said Dennis Fong, CEO of Raptr. “Along with the user growth of our application, we’re also now reaching over a million unique visitors a day on our website, and have expanded our presence into the mobile arena.”
Raptr is available on Windows and mobile phones, but a Mac version is sadly not available, or not anymore, after they pulled it years ago due to not having much of a gaming scene on the Mac. Hopefully since gaming seems to be growing in popularity on Mac computers, and they have all this money to spend, they can create Mac users another application to use. I’m excited for the future of the company and hope they continue to expand and develop new uses for their client.
