Dentyne on Facebook

Brand: Dentyne First off- sorry for the hiatus. The new year has brought lots of new opportunities (and also, less time) so our little growing Appsplosive site got put on the backburner until life was situated. But! We’re baaaaaack Okay, okay. I admit it. This app isn’t THAT amazing, but I had to include it...
MTV on Facebook

MTV on Facebook

Brand: MTV The MTV one was actually really fun to do- I’m a big fan of apps where you can stick your face in someone’s body and look pretty ridiculous. When you first check out the MTV Facebook fan page, click on the “MTV Me!” tab to get started. When you opt in, you’ll see...
JCPenney on Facebook

JCPenney on Facebook

Brand: JCPenney JCPenney has decided to jump on the Facebook application bandwagon- but instead of putting out an intricate app, they’ve simply taken the experience that people want from JCPenney, and translated that onto their Facebook fan page.

Wunderlist Multi-Platform Task Manager

Wunderlist Multi-Platform Task Manager

Brand: 6WunderKinder Application: Wunderlist Wunderlist has been a lifesaver. I didn’t throw myself full on into using this application when I first found it- namely because it didn’t have an available iPhone app and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to use a program that I couldn’t sync while I was out and about. Recently,...

We’re always “liking” fan pages and (maybe we don’t admit it)...
