Mob4Hire's innovative method of simplifying application testing is attractive to us on several fronts
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) March 30, 2009
Mob4Hire is pleased to announce that it has signed a marketing deal with Gamelion in order to better facilitate the worldwide testing of mobile applications. Gamelion will enter their approximately 4800 handset/carrier combinations into the database of Mob4hire, bringing their total global handset testing marketplace to over 8000 handsets, which will help mobile application developers better test their applications in the European marketplace.
Stephen King, CEO, Mob4Hire states, "We are thrilled to be partnering with this high quality mobile player and it certainly strengthens our position in Europe in terms of scope and breadth. Gamelion has some of the biggest players in the industry on their customer list and one of the largest handset parks in Europe."
Award winning, Mob4Hire has created a bidding platform to help mobile developers traverse the myriad of handsets, platforms and networks that comprise the mobile industry today. Developers can easily contact testers from all over the world in order to ensure the quality and functionality of their applications. Gamelion's handsets and strong technical staff will triple Mob4Hire's MobPro testers, which are comprised of professional testers all over the world.
"Mob4Hire's innovative method of simplifying application testing is attractive to us on several fronts," adds Anton Gauffin, CEO of Gamelion. "Mob4Hire acts as a marketing arm for our mobile testing services while increasing our return on investment with this large, but depreciating capital asset, but the real winner will be the mobile developer who will be able to access quality testing services faster and less expensively."
