TenPearls was the perfect partner to help me take my concept to completion affordably with rapid turnaround times
Herndon, VA (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
TenPearls, a global application development outsourcing company focused on mobile, software and game development, announced the launch of version 1.0 of Gabbaga, a location-based mobile app for 2DLW, a start-up based out of the Washington DC Metro area.
Gabbaga helps users connect with each other based on their location. With Gabbaga, iPhone users simply check-in and select a radius, anywhere from one-quarter of a mile to 500 miles. The user is then assigned a random ID to anonymously post their messages or respond to other messages posted by users within the selected radius. Once the user signs out, their posts and replies are deleted from the server.
The location-based app, which is free to download and works off of Wi-Fi or any 3G or 4G network, allows hyper-links so users can promote and advertise themselves however they want. A restaurant owner, for example, could turn a slow evening into a packed house by linking to specials for any possible patrons in their radius. Similarly, a homeowner could use Gabbaga to find a friendly neighbor to shovel their driveway.
“In my line of work I’m always thinking about security and how to keep my information private,” said Dan Williams, founder of Gabbaga by night, and an active Marine during the day. “My thought was to create an application that would allow me to interact with everyone around me without sharing any personal information. Once I had the idea, I wanted to be agile about it, and launch version 1.0 as quickly as possible to test the market. TenPearls was the perfect partner to help me take my concept to completion affordably with rapid turnaround times.”
“It is greatly satisfying to be able to help a start-up bootstrap the first version of their product,” said Imran Aftab, President of TenPearls. “The great interest Gabbaga is seeing from consumers and enterprises is reflective of Dan’s commitment towards his product. TenPearls is building a number of highly scalable, location-based mobile apps for clients, and Gabbaga is an exciting addition to our portfolio.”
TenPearls has been retained by 2DLW to develop Gabbaga Version 2.0, a greatly enhanced and usable version of the location-based app. Version 2.0 is already in development for the iPhone and iPad. 2DLW also has plans to launch the Android version based on popular demand from users.
