Let’s face it, if you want to really get your brand noticed by millions of people you’re eventually going to have to build an app. Smartphone sales are rising quickly and the first thing anyone does when they buy their phone is fill it with applications. You probably thought it would cost thousands of dollars to build your own app but thanks to Mobile Roadie you can build one at a reasonable price.
Mobile Roadie was already available for the iPhone and they are now also building apps for the Android. In seconds you can begin building your own personalized application. They let you build your app through an easy to use CMS system where you can add tons of features. You can add music, photos, a fan wall, a news section and various other add-ons. Another cool feature is push notifications for the iPhone. Even if iPhone users aren’t currently logged into your app they can still get instant notifications about upcoming events or breaking news. Mobile Roadie will also handle the App Store approval process and send your app to the Android Market.
Pricing includes a $499 set up cost and a monthly fee of $29. If you buy apps for both the iPhone and the Android they will give you a 20% off discount. One drawback about this service is that your app won’t be completely unique. Sure you can tweak the appearance to what you like but it will probably look similar to a bunch of other apps on the market. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as you will want to put something out there that people are already familiar with. Still Mobile Roadie is the best way for anyone to create their own app at a reasonable price. They give you all the tools necessary to get your app in front of millions of people and that will surely benefit your brand.
