Build a BlackBerry app in minutes with JoeMobi
JoeMobi gives anyone with a WordPress blog a customized BlackBerry app in three easy steps!
Android users and sites built on the open-source Drupal CMS will soon be able to use JoeMobi too.
Toronto, Ontario – August 19, 2011 – The 54 million bloggers using WordPress as their CMS can now build their very own customized BlackBerry app within minutes using JoeMobi.
JoeMobi gives bloggers a customized BlackBerry app that their readers can download to their device and use to read and interact with their blog. The blogger simply downloads the free plugin to their WordPress site from the official WordPress plugin directory, logs on to joemobi.com, registers their site’s URL, and chooses the logo and background colours for the app.
“Having their very own, branded BlackBerry app was completely unattainable for the vast majority of bloggers before JoeMobi,” says Harry Scanlan, Director of Mobile Technology and partner at SpeakFeel, the mobile marketing agency and product development firm that built the app. “Now WordPress users can have their very own native app with control over the app’s look and feel.”
Web site owners can copy and paste the code to their site, making it simple for their readers to download the app to their BlackBerry device. JoeMobi also allows users to post responses and comments to blog posts directly from the app.
“Of the 284 million people who view WordPress blogs every month, there will be communities that are more likely to be BlackBerry users, such as sites that deal with finance, fantasy sports or corporate content” says Kelly Brooks, President of SpeakFeel. “This allows bloggers to get prime real estate on their readers’ smartphones.”
JoeMobi is in beta and available for free now to build BlackBerry apps. Soon, Android users and sites built on the open-source Drupal CMS will be able to use JoeMobi too.
“This is just the beginning for JoeMobi,” says Noel Webb, Vice President and Chairman of SpeakFeel. “There are more widgets planned, including ones that will support advertising so that bloggers can increase their revenue stream.”
JoeMobi is yet another in a series of products built by SpeakFeel over the past year – both for consumers and for corporate clients.
