Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) May 19, 2011
JR Ridinger, President & CEO of Market America (http://www.marketamerica.com) & SHOP.COM (http://www.shop.com), Internet marketing and product brokerage companies, announced today that it has launched its first iPhone application for Taiwan, MT Mobile. In addition Market America has announced the enhancement of its m-commerce mobile application, MA Mobile, by adding bar code scanning and customized coupon deals to both the Apple App Store and Android Marketplace, making the shopping experience that much more enjoyable.
The Taiwan application (MT Mobile) offers anything from viewing in-depth product information of the company's products and increased Cashback offerings, social sharing, to even local movie and transportation information. The centerpiece of the application is a unique geo-location mapping system of Taiwan stores partnered with the company that offer Cashback on in store purchases, in addition to what is offered on its Taiwan website, markettaiwan.com.tw, (http://www.markettaiwan.com.tw).
“These new additions put Market America at the forefront of the mobile shopping world,” Said Steve Ashley, Vice President of Internet Marketing and m-Commerce. “Between this and what we have in our mobile development queue for Market America and SHOP.COM, we have merely scratched the surface,” Said Ashley.
As for its current application, Market America Mobile, the company has added two major enhancements. With over 3,000 partner stores and tens of thousands of special offers and coupons on the application, finding a specific deal relative to your wants and needs can be difficult to locate on a mobile device. The company has eased that concern by now offering customers the ability to opt into specific store deals and coupons. The process is simple. Pick the stores you want to receive special offers from (you can modify your selections at any time) and twice a day Market America will check its database and send you a notification when new deals are available for the stores you chose. Once you click to view the offer, the application will open and load your coupon book so that you can swipe through all your store offers. It is like having a daily coupon book only filled with stores you shop at!
In addition, the application has launched a bar code scanning service that brings back lightning-fast results. You will either get an exact match from multiple stores so you can price shop or, if the product is not in the companies search; they will send back related items.
“As we continue to strive to create the best shopping app around, I am constantly excited about what we are developing,” Said Kevin Curley, Co-manager of Mobile Development.
“We have some amazing new features coming, and a great team to implement them,” Said Curley.
