Another fantastic example of how sports teams are using mobile apps to connect with their fans.
(PRWEB) December 10, 2014
AppMakr, a leading DIY mobile app builder, today announced that the Glentoran is the company’s “App Of The Week” for November 23rd - 29th.
Each week, AppMakr features one app from the thousands published using our app building tool, called The Machine. This app was selected because it demonstrates the quality of content, design and relevancy that mobile apps can bring to groups trying to make a difference in their community.
With more than 1 Billion smartphones now active in the world, 84% of those users are spending at least 1 hr each day on their smartphones, the base on potential mobile fans for the Glentoran is massive and growing quickly by the day. It was this potential that motivated AppMakr to create an easy drag-and-drop app builder platform that enables anyone to create an app like the Glentoran for free and without the knowledge of coding.
The Glentoran and thousands of sports teams, small to large businesses, schools, blogs, and community groups have selected the AppMakr DIY app maker platform to create and launch their mobile app for Android, iPhone and over 5,000 different models of HTML5 compatible smartphones.
In a recent interview about building the Glentoran app, Andrew Glennie, developer and owner of the app, told AppMakr the following about their experience entering the app economy:
AppMakr: What motivates you to go mobile?
Andrew: The fans are the motivation for creating the app and they want the latest club information wherever they are, so to be able to provide that, it's imperative to create a mobile app.
AppMakr: How did you find AppMakr?
Andrew: We were simply researching how much and how difficult it would be to create a mobile app then came across Appmakr using google search... Created a 'prototype' and got feedback from some friends and took it from there.
AppMakr: What impact do you think it would have on your community with this mobile app you’ve built?
Andrew: The app has been a hit so far with Google play paid downloads funding the costs. We are the only Irish league club with a mobile app, and the instant access to information has been a welcome addition to the club’s communication strategy.
