NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Applico, a mobile app company for Fortune 500 firms and consumer brands, today announced the launch of its Connected Services Division. The new department will specialize in mobile apps for devices beyond smartphones such as tablets, Internet-connected televisions, cars and other electronic devices.
“The Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month demonstrated that many opportunities for mobile apps exist on other devices in addition to the smartphone,” said Alex Moazed, CEO and President of Applico. “In the coming year, we expect to see a myriad of new tablets, TVs, cars and even household appliances all capable of running an app. Applico Connected Services will focus on helping our clients strategize, design, and develop apps that cater specifically to these products.”
Since its launch in 2009, Applico has quickly risen to become a leader in mobile app creation for smartphones and tablets. The company has won awards for its strategic and creative solutions on the iPhone/iPad, Android, and BlackBerry. While Applico has continued its success in the smartphone sector, it has expanded into creating apps for the iPad and Android tablets since their introduction last year.
“The explosion of app platforms for connected devices creates huge opportunities for our clients and the company,” Moazed continued. "Our Connected Services Division dedicates resources to become familiar with new platforms so that our clients can have the flexibility and strategic advantage to expand their mobile strategy. When our clients want to introduce their app on a car manufacturer's mobile app platform, our Connected Services Division will be the best in class to do so."
In the coming year, Applico expects the Connected Services Division to be focused most heavily on tablets, cars and TVs, particularly given the recent focus at CES and expectation of new products in the first half of the year.
Applico specializes in the strategy, design, and development of mobile applications for all major operating systems and platforms including iPhone, Android, RIM, Symbian and Windows Mobile 7. To date, Applico has developed mobile solutions for leading companies and consumer brands including AT&T, General Motors, Pearson Publishing, Equinox and Rodale.
