The Washington area is quickly becoming a leading hotspot for mobile innovation.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 27, 2010
Custom mobile app developer PointAbout Inc., innovation event series Disruptathon, and entrepreneur hotspot 1410Q are hosting an app-making seminar at the Apple store in Clarendon, Virginia on May 6 to help local businesses learn how to make iPhone apps at a fraction of the normal cost and time.
PointAbout will be showing the local business community how to make iPhone apps for less than $300 by using http://www.AppMakr.com -- a new DIY app-making service. Since its launch in January, more than 5,600 apps have been built using AppMakr.
The event is sponsored by Apple, PointAbout's AppMakr, Disruptathon and 1410Q, an innovation hotspot located in Washington, D.C.
"Apple has provided us with an opportunity to show the local business community what AppMakr is capable of," said Daniel Odio, co-founder and COO of PointAbout. "We invite people to come in and learn about iPhone applications and how mobile can provide you a new way to reach your existing and prospective customer bases. Apps used to cost tens of thousands of dollars and months to create, but with AppMakr you can make an app in minutes for under $300."
"The Washington area is quickly becoming a leading hotspot for mobile innovation,” said Pete Erickson, founder of innovation discovery series Disruptathon. “It is great to see events like this one at Apple's Clarendon store where the regional business community can discover the benefits of leading technologies such as PointAbout's AppMakr platform."
The event will take place at the Clarendon, Virginia Apple store located at 2700 Clarendon Boulevard, Arlington, VA on May 6 at 7 p.m.
