Cowgirl App is an app review site founded by Pamela Poole and Samantha Villenave.
Pam is a tech blogger (with work on ReadWrite, GigaOm and HuffPo) and a translator. She reviews iOS apps. Sam is a writer and artist who brings exposure to the visual art community through Art+Talk Hangouts on Air and the monthly #FirstFridayArtWalk on Google+. She covers Android and iPad apps.
They started this project because (in their words):
- There aren’t (m)any app review sites written by women. It’s past time. We like apps too! I mean, just read about moms and mobile.
- We didn’t have a place where we could talk about the apps we love.
- We spend a lot of time trying to introduce non-geeky (girl)friends who are still using their smartphones like dumbphones to the joys of mobile tech, and trying to entice the dumbphone users to join us in the 21st century.
- And because of two old ladies overheard on a bus… OL1: “Ever since the Internet, I don’t understand a thing. Not a thing!” OL2: “Neither do I.” We don’t want that to be you.
So we thought we’d share. That’s what girls do, after all.
