WOODLAND HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--One of the leading networks of forum communities on the Internet, CrowdGather, Inc. (OTCQB:CRWG), today announced the official release of its improved iOS mobile app for the Company’s largest forum community, Yuku.com.
CrowdGather initially launched the app in July of 2012 as a complimentary application for users. Over the past year, the Company solicited feedback from users and worked closely with its partner, Tapatalk, to improve moderation and user messaging tools, among many other features. CrowdGather will begin charging on a per download basis for the updated app, but all users who downloaded the app prior to the new release will be able to update the app for free in Apple’s app store. Although the vast majority of mobile users are accessing CrowdGather’s content through iOS based mobile devices, the Company plans to release an improved Android version in the coming weeks.
CrowdGather is also focusing on expanding its relationship with Tapatalk, a leader in mobile app development for forums, to rollout mobile apps for the Company’s largest branded forums like RapMusic.com, and for other hosted communities like Lefora.com and Freeforums.org. CrowdGather is seeing increased mobile traffic across its network, and continues to plan on ensuring the best possible user experience while working to achieve additional revenue sources. Whether through app download fees, app native ads, or mobile non-app ad delivery, CrowdGather are pursuing multiple monetization opportunities.
