Chicago (PRWEB) July 07, 2011
Red Foundry announces the launch of the official I Can Has Cheezburger? iPhone app, created with Red Foundry’s one-on-one mobile training program, IGNITE. Using Red Foundry’s (http://redfoundry.com) revolutionary mobile app development platform that enables anyone to build mobile apps without coding, the official I Can Has Cheezburger? (http://www.icanhascheezburger.com) mobile app is available from the App Store now. The app allows iPhone users to enjoy all the lolz on the Cheezburger Network’s I Can Has Cheezburger family of sites and easily share their favorite photos and videos, via Facebook, Twitter, and email with family and friends.
Red Foundry’s IGNITE program is a ten-day process where organizations receive one-on-one professional support, either virtually or in-person, to create a working prototype of their desired app. Through the program, the Cheezburger team learned how to effectively use Red Foundry’s comprehensive mobile suite of tools and incorporate their preferred functions into the app, such as iAds, integrated analytics and content management. Red Foundry also worked with Cheezburger to ensure they had a functional app by the end of the process and that members of the company were confident in their ability to easily alter or enhance the app in the future.
“We were looking for an app platform that would allow our awesome Cheezburger fans to view and share popular memes in a fun way on their mobile phones,” said Todd Sawicki, chief revenue officer of Cheezburger Network. “Unlike other solutions that offered generic templates, we selected Red Foundry’s IGNITE program and platform because they could help us connect with our users through an app with a vibrant design that provides detailed analytics – all without spending thousands of dollars. Ultimately, Red Foundry provided the support we wanted and taught us how to manage our app functionality at a cost-effective price and in a matter of days.”
Taking several key features from their already iconic website, Cheezburger collaborated with the Red Foundry team to create a visually stunning and easy-to-use mobile app, so fans can quickly download the app and view the latest photos and videos from more than 45 popular humor sites, including I Can Has Cheezburger?, The Daily What, and Know Your Meme. In addition, Cheezburger’s app is the first app built on the Red Foundry platform to use iAds, a revenue generating feature that displays advertisement information without redirecting away from the app. iAds were launched by Apple in early April 2011, and they are just one of the many additional functionality options available on the platform.
“The Red Foundry development platform and IGNITE program deliver mobile app solutions for companies and individuals at an unprecedented time to market, all while enabling maximum creative freedom,” said Jim Heising, CEO and founder of Red Foundry. “Cheezburger was looking for more than a beautiful mobile app, they wanted a business solution that would allow them to interact with their users through push notifications and API connections, such as Facebook and Twitter, and measure their success with intelligent analytics. All of these options are available on the Red Foundry platform, and at a fraction of the cost and time. We look forward to working with other creative companies that are looking for dynamic app solutions.”
All users can customize and enhance their app with Red Foundry’s unique mobile suite of tools. These tools include intelligent analytics, push notifications, API connections, user-generated content, and Red Foundry’s markup language (RFML) that is intuitive for anyone with basic HTML or XML knowledge.
