Mobile Roadie, a provider of a dead simple mobile app building platform for iPhone and Android apps, recently announced a new "Pro" version of the platform that allows for even more customization and functionality.
The platform offers a beautiful interface to design apps, allowing full customization of menu layouts, colors, buttons, and fonts. The new Pro version also supports multiple categories of content, a global search for users and newly designed landscape views, just to name a few.
The new platform has already been used by some big names to create some pretty impressive apps. Three examples include the Wynn Las Vegas, indie electro label Ninja Tune and music and lifestyle publication The FADER. "We are very picky and controlling when it comes to brand integrity," says Andy Cohn, EVP and Group Publisher of FADER Media, Inc. "Every single part of our user's engagement has to experience The FADER brand and culture." The FADER is also offering exclusive content available to view when people download their app.
In total, Mobile Roadie's app platform already boasts over 500 live apps, which have had over 21M songs and 1.8M videos streamed. The platform has 1.6M total users that have purchased over $100,000 in music through iTunes as well. Pricing starts at $499 to setup and $29 per month. Building apps requires no tech knowledge, can be done in about 30 minutes, and includes technology updates throughout the year, adding new features and functionality.
"In 2009 we launched the first self-service platform to create mobile apps, and today we are taking that a step further with deeper customization and content options," says CEO Michael Schneider. "With Pro, brands have complete control and can include as much content as they wish, all within the same easy-to-use interface that they've come to expect from Mobile Roadie."
