Share Article

Bordeaux-based mobile internet start-up Mobiles Republic has developed an innovative widget solution for mobile phones which provides an intuitive and fast user experience and opens up an opportunity for mobile phones to become one of the most powerful and profitable media platform.

The founders are industry experts with a strong network and previous founding experience. In addition, we are convinced that mobile internet services are a trend with huge potential.

Mobiles Republic's mXplora ™ is the first widget solution that enables all relevant players in the mobile and internet industry to advertise directly on the phone. With its design and underlying technology, the mobile client is faster, more convenient in usage and more profitable for all involved players.

"With mXplora™, we are able to provide users with more customized information in less time than on existing solutions for mobile handhelds, and we cover largely even low-end and mid-tier phones" says Gilles Raymond, CEO of Mobiles Republic. "At the same time, what makes our widget client very attractive for media, carriers, operators, manufacturers and content providers is that it enables all of these players to maximise their advertising revenues much quicker and more visibly than on current mobile websites or other existing widget applications."

Mobiles Republic's widget engine is either pre-installed on mobile phones or available for download over the air. It allows the user to browse through content and services provided by major triple A publishers and media brands that have chosen mXplora™ to address the mobile audience.

"We really believe in Mobiles Republic's team and its revolutionary concept" says Cédric Koehler, Investment Manager at Creathor Venture. "The founders are industry experts with a strong network and previous founding experience. In addition, we are convinced that mobile internet services are a trend with huge potential."
