This week marks the conclusion to Season 3 of App Talk with Upptic! Instead of having a guest this week, we’re taking a moment to reach out to you, our listeners, and highlight the latest from Upptic – such as our new Web3 Community Growth services and partnership with Arrivant.

P.S. we’re hiring!

But don’t worry, we wouldn’t leave you without the latest industry insights and a couple neat apps! In this week’s episode we also discuss the latest news regarding Bored Ape, Square Enix, Activision Blizzard, Facebook, YouTube, and Apple. There’s a lot going on!

And, as always, we close with a couple of our favorite apps.

If you have a topic you think we should cover, or you’d like to be a guest yourself, reach out to us at or via @Upptic on Twitter.

Thank you for listening to us this season! See you in a few weeks!
