North­eastern Uni­ver­sity busi­ness stu­dent Sean Castro’s web­site show­casing soon-​​to-​​be-​​released mobile apps is valu­able to both con­sumers and developers.

When Sean Casto walks across the stage for grad­u­a­tion on May 3, the North­eastern busi­ness stu­dent will walk straight into a self-​​generated career.

A serial entre­pre­neur, Casto’s latest com­pany,PreApps, is pio­neering a new model of mar­keting for the mobile appli­ca­tion com­mu­nity that gives devel­opers a chance to rise above the flood of the roughly 30,000 new apps hit­ting the market each month.

Users can pre­view upcoming mobile apps, rate them, sign up as beta testers or join a list­serv to be noti­fied of any changes – including when a par­tic­ular app is going to be released through Apple’s App Store or Google Play.
