Hyper Local Application made with ease:
Smartphone and tablet adoption is exploding and fuelling the use of mobile applications and a mobile lifestyle globally.
While the thought of creating a custom mobile app can be overwhelming and tumultuous, there’s an easy-to-use platform that is rethinking innovation in the app world and redefining mobile communities.
TownWizard is a mobile app platform that has inspired over 150 apps in seven countries in the past year. Designed for local entrepreneurs and organizations on a budget, and for those with limited technical knowledge, TownWizard provides all the know-how customers need to build a hyper-local iPhone and Android app–at a fraction of the cost and time. Estimated custom app development costs range from $20,000 to $250,000, a king’s ransom compared to TownWizard’s one-time set-up cost of $795 and a monthly fee of $249.
Founded in 2010 in Florida by an entrepreneur pursuing a hobby, TownWizard was created for aspiring entrepreneurs to develop hyper-local mobile guides. Complete with strong community-building functionality and a companion website, TownWizard customers share their knowledge of the local scene and build a loyal following that advertisers demand. Over the past year, TownWizard has blossomed into a global phenomenon in the app world, serving a myriad of different purposes.
Google recently revealed that one-third of all mobile searches involve some aspect of local news and information. Google, together with countless unconnected mobile options for dining (Yelp, UrbanSpoon), Social / Check-Ins (Twitter, Facebook, FourSquare), News/Info (Yellow Pages, Weather Channel) and Deals (Groupon, LivingSocial) make navigating local life nearly impossible. While the tech industry typically focuses on large metropolitan cities, TownWizard’s hyper-local mobile guides provide authentic, not automated, information from hometown experts for residents to connect daily and for town visitors to receive immediate access to the local flavor.
TownWizard’s low-cost, easy-to-use platform has also attracted small business owners, large companies and other business users looking to build a custom app to stay competitive connect their audiences and expand their brand experience. From large luxury resorts to publishing companies with hundreds of employees, to local events organizers, TownWizard has helped redefine the mobile community beyond geographic boundaries.
With the proliferation of wireless technologies, TownWizard is expected to grow 50% in 12 months to over 200 locations and double its global reach in 12 months to 14 countries.Anthony Munns
