Mobile application developer JACAPPS has rolled out a new initiative -- "App Everywhere." The program utilizes the growing array of new devices -- including APPLE Watch, GOOGLE Chromecast, smart TVs, and in-car dashboards to provide radio brands with the ability to connect with listeners wherever they are and whenever they want.
"We saw the growing trend at CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW this past JANUARY. It is essential that radio stations make it easier for consumers to connect with their content throughout the digital ecosystem," JACOBS MEDIA CEO FRED JACOBS commented. "Consumers aren't buying radios, but they are purchasing smart TV, smartwatches, and other gadgets driven by apps. The radio industry needs to be there, too."
JACAPPS is now developing apps for these new platforms, and will produce APPLE Watch applications for an early FALL release to coincide with APPLE's WatchOS2 update.
"These new devices provide radio with an opportunity to maintain and grow its already amazing reach," JACAPPS COO BOB KERNEN added. "While the smartphone has revolutionized our lives, we are focused on developing apps in cars, on wrists, and in living rooms. Our experience as the House Developer for FORD has demonstrated the power of distribution, and this expansion is just the beginning."
"We think it is important for our clients' content to be where the audiences are," notes JACOBS, "And that's what 'App Everywhere' is all about."
