San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 09, 2011
DoubleDutch™, the industry’s only provider of cloud-based, geo-social mobile applications for enterprises and employees, today announced the availability of HYVE Public™ through the iTunes Store. HYVE Public is a free mobile app that allows any iPhone user to share what they are working on and to connect with other professionals working on similar activities.
Based on a design principal of “tapping not typing,” HYVE Public integrates geo-tagging functionality to let users check-in to customers, projects, and locations. This enables them to share their work activities, achievements, and goals with the entire HYVE Public community. Each user has a record associated with their profile of all the customers, projects, and places they have interacted with. HYVE Public also includes:
- In-app gaming mechanisms for an engaging user experience such as earning badges and points
- A competitive leaderboard that tracks how users are doing against friends as well as the entire user network
- Full integration with Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter for easily broadcasting work achievements out to additional networks
- Personalized analytics that show graphical breakdowns of a user’s productivity and time spent on various projects and customers
“The workplace remains the final frontier for social media. HYVE Public aims to shine some light on all the great things that folks are getting done at work, and to help people connect around projects, career goals places, and customers,” says DoubleDutch CEO Lawrence Coburn. “We see lots of companies purchasing private productivity apps in the HYVE enterprise suite of social and mobile apps, specifically focused on collaboration and workflow applications like social CRM. But with HYVE Public, now everyone can participate in a professional public network built around work successes and goals.”
The first version of HYVE Public is available to download and use free of charge today at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hyve-public/id456292658?ls=1&mt=8.
