New York, NY (PRWEB) September 27, 2010
The potential of the internet has finally come of age, thanks to the “keep it simple” philosophy of New Zealand software developer Dave Pugh, the brains behind the web’s first speed dialer.
“I couldn’t believe that we are still stuck with long, laborious URLs to access websites, when the possibility is there to have a simple one word ‘speed dial’ that can get potential customers to a site in an instant” says Dave.
Designed primarily with smartphones and non-typists in mind, the NDial app allows anyone to simply type in a word, say “coke” or “burgers” and go directly to the Coca-Cola or MacDonalds website. Alternatively, they can simply use their smartphone barcode reader to scan a two dimensional bar code and go direct to the website.
“No need to type in www, or even the .com – just one word, and voila, the NDial app takes you straight to the target website.”
NDial is optimised for Android and iPhone, and can also be run from a desktop app. The app is free and can be downloaded from Ndial.com.
Each NDial word comes with a set of images that can be used for online or print advertising. These images have a standard design ensuring the word is instantly recognized as a NDial word.
Pugh believes NDial has massive potential for corporates, marketing teams, advertising and branding agencies and anyone who wants to “own a word” and link it to any site they wish.
“Any corporation that values the words associated with its brand, products and services should be grabbing the chance to buy those words as soon as they can,” he comments.
