Company Name : AppDupe
Description : Mobile & Web App Clone Marketplace
Company Overview : AppDupe is a mobile and web app clone marketplace. RocketInternet is so cozy because, they implement a clone of a business that is successful in some part of the world and market it to a different region or target a niche. The reason they do that and get funded heavily is that, the idea does not need rigorous testing and n number of pivots to attain the perfect business flow. It is already available somewhere, they just need to copy a working startup or company.
AppDupe does that same with the most popular web and mobile apps. We have some in our arsenal now, but in a few months’ time, anyone will be able to buy a turnkey AppDupe script and launch any of the most successful mobile apps out there, exactly like RocketInternet, and make millions.
It is not even a low hanging fruit, someone has already plucked it, washed and sliced it for them. Trying to raise funding for that venture, talk about a walk in the park.

I am an avid tech enthusiast and researcher. I am addicted to content showcases like Upworthy and 9Gag, a lot of us are. When I was talking to the GM of a social media company, that handles a national political party’s online campaign. It was in Chennai, on a sunny Friday afternoon. He was wishing if there was a website like Upworthy that he can launch and have all the campaign content go viral in minutes, due to the compulsive viral features of the website.
That is when I took it up as an experiment and started coding that weekend and came up with Noteworthy – an Upworthy clone in every way, design & featurewise.
Incredibly he bought it off me, for a good deal of money. That is when it hit me. People have ideas about how things should happen. Some will say Facebook should have never implemented the Timeline design or Instagram should not have sold off or should have started a SAAS for enterprises like Yammer for creative agencies etc.
I knew what I was going to do then. I was going to build clones of all the major mobile and web apps out there so that anyone who wanted to launch a clone of a successful business, either tailored to their region or language or target it to a particular niche, will be able to do so not in months, but in minutes.
