Software development company BigForge announces the launch of LocalBeacon, a new product enabling users to build iPhone applications and deploy them in as little as 20 minutes. With LocalBeacon, users can rapidly create branded iPhone experiences featuring their own content to connect with their audiences.
"At BigForge, our main focus is developing software that helps people and organizations rapidly publish content on mobile devices. With LocalBeacon, both individuals and companies will now be able to do so and instantly reach their intended audiences," says Bruce Levine of BigForge.
LocalBeacon helps businesses and individual users publish content with their own branded experience on the iPhone. The content runs in a native iPhone application that has full access to all features of the iPhone, including adding contacts and GPS. Users simply enter content on BigForge’s LocalBeacon portal, and it gets published immediately to your end users.
LocalBeacon users can create an iPhone application in one of two ways. The first method to publishing your content is utilizing QuickDeploy, which uses a pre-built app installed by the user, but accessed as if it was his or her own application. Alternatively, LocalBeacon users have the option of having their own customized application built and deployed on the App Store, a great option for those who want to charge for their content or want the extra visibility. With both methods, users can manage multiple applications from their LocalBeacon portal and can also create categories and subcategories to let those using the application navigate and browse content easily and intuitively.
With LocalBeacon, publishers can embed audio clips and reference YouTube videos from their items. Items with addresses can also be mapped with the full Google Maps and location integration.
Using QuickDeploy, users can have an iPhone app uploaded and set for publication in as little as 20 minutes; with the custom-built app, BigForge will manage the application deployment process, which may take several weeks. Users of the custom app can use QuickDeploy until the application is accepted.
