Good afternoon to you all. I am very proud to announce the launch of the AGORACOM iPhone App – and it is wicked! First, as you can see from the screen shot above, our development team did a great job of creating an elegant and functional interface.
Second and most importantly, it provides small cap investors with powerful information in the palm of their hands. No matter where you are, you are never out of touch with the small-cap world thanks to the following amazing features:
- Headlines - The best small-cap headlines of the day are posted every morning and as they happen throughout the day. We even break it down by industry, including the best news out of the Chinese small and mid-cap space.
- Videos - AGORACOM Small Cap Videos have been watched over 300,000 times and are now available right on your iPhone. Why do small-cap investors love our videos? Every morning we produce AGORACOM Small Cap TV, AGORACOM Small Cap Gold and Resources TV and Chinese Small-Cap TV to provide investors with a daily, fast-paced cutting edge show delivering the best small-cap news of the day.
- Blogs and Tweets – We share some pretty powerful information via our multiple blogs and twitter accounts, so for those of you that follow us, you aren’t skipping a beat. For those of you that haven’t caught on to blogs and tweets yet, the information is nicely and conveniently compiled in the palm of your hand.
- AGORACOM Mobile – Feel the need to read and/or post to your favourite HUBS on AGORACOM. Click on AGORACOM Mobile and go straight to the log-in page to get you started. For those of you that aren’t AGORACOM members, you can surf anonymously, or log-in using your Facebook account (more about that in another announcement)
Overall, we’re really happy with the first version of our app and you can expect us to keep adding new features over the coming months and years.
WHY MOBILE? …. WHY AN IPHONE APP? …. WHERE TO?
In case you are asking yourself about the importance of mobile and, specifically, an iPhone app, look for answers no further than our announcement earlier this year that Mobile Devices Drive 16,000 Visits To AGORACOM in August. The iPhone accounted for 75% of all mobile visits (yeah, that surprised us too)
Also, people now spend as much time on mobiles as reading on newspapers and magazines. We’re extremely confident that mobile is going to dwarf newspapers and magazines going forward for the simple reason that your phone gives you information as it happens, not the day after.
Moreover, look for a Blackberry App (to compliment our existing Blackberry content partnership) and Android app to follow in Q1 2011. Unfortunately, much to the chagrin of 4 AGORACOM Members, (Cylinder and AlsoFromSudbury) we won’t be developing a Palm App … we calculated it would be cheaper to simply buy each one of them an iPhone
In the meantime, please download our iPhone App and provide us with your feedback, as well as, feature requests for our next upgrade.
