GetApp.com is a business software marketplace [1] which lists online software categorized by industry, business need, operating system, deployment method and geography.[2][3] Users can search for business applications or use the various software recommendation tools made available by the site. The site also offers peer reviews of software, interviews with software company CEOs, a monthly Top 25 ranking of popular online software for small businesses,[4] as well as an interactive online software Q&A section where business users can ask questions and receive expert advice. GetApp.com claims to be vendor-independent and platform-neutral (i.e. it does not recommend specific vendors or technology platforms above others).

Software vendors and application providers can register and list their applications on GetApp.com, and receive pre-qualified traffic and leads according to their specific target market criteria from prospective software buyers. As of November 2011, over 1,400 software vendors worldwide were using GetApp.com to promote over 4500 applications to business buyers.

GetApp.com was launched in January 2010 and is headquartered in Barcelona, Spain.[5] It is wholly owned by Nubera e-Business SL, a company decidated to building online distribution channels for web-based business applications. GetApp.com has received venture capital funding in September 2011 from Nauta Capital [2]
