APPICS is an innovative new smartphone social media app that is designed to make it possible for social media fiends to earn something from all the time they spend on their digital networking, by allowing them to earn cryptocurrency tokens for creating, sharing and engaging with different kinds of content.

The APPICS social media app makes use of the Steem blockchain system to let the creators of social media content claim 65% of all the revenue generated from their output, with 25% going to other engaged users and 10% reinvested into the app's development and evolution.

By rewarding social media users with cryptocurrency tokens, the APPICS project makes use of nascent cryptocurrency infrastructure to gamify the simple act of using social media, with the ultimate aim being the use of incentives to create a vibrant and active social media space.
