Our publisher tools make it easy to allow your readers to rate any place you post about, and help you build a community by bringing your readers together around your blog using social media. Our publisher plugin for Blogger and WordPress makes it easy to grow readership and earn affiliate revenue with your paypal account.

If you are a web site developer creating a web site why not make it easy to bundle check-in and rewards with your next venue web site development project? By bundling our web plugin with our business services you have a simple, mobile enabled, check-in and rewards system to add value to your next web site project. We pay referral fees for every business services signup.

It's simple.

RateCred is the social game that lets you rate any place and then share with your friends using Twitter to earn cred and offers. We recognize that your opinion is valuable, so why shouldnt you recieve recognition for your expertise? That's why leaders in the game get special awards and recognition for being a thought leader, what we call "cred". RateCred makes it easy to share opinions about your likes and dislikes for any place you go. If you have a Twitter account you already are signed up for RateCred.

Our application is currently available for free on android market, the Sencha Touch effort is intended to at least provide iPhone support and at best to converge our mobile client platform.

Any advice, critique, or comments are greatly appreciated.
