Sweb Apps Gives the Gift of Free iPhone Applications to Non-Profits This Holiday Season

iPhone App Creation Platform Lets Non-Profits Easily and Instantly Communicate With Members, Volunteers and Donors on the Go

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwire - December 7, 2009) - Sweb Apps (, the Web site that lets anyone build a great-looking, highly-functional mobile application for their business, today announced that they will defer all set-up fees for non-profit organizations through June 30, 2010. Now non-profits will be able to customize a professional-quality iPhone application to promote their organization in just 30 minutes -- even if they don't have a technical background to create one on their own.

"Sweb Apps is very focused on giving back. With the economic uncertainty we have all faced this year, this is our way of giving to organizations that struggle with budgets," said Magaly Chocano, CEO and Founder of Sweb Apps. "By creating a mobile application with Sweb Apps, non-profits, charities, religious institutions and other organizations can easily and instantly communicate with their members, donors and volunteers, updating them on the latest news, details on events, information on how to get involved."

"We wanted a new way to reach our audience, and maintain and build a new listener-base without spending a fortune," said Bryan Race, WRAF Station Manager of Tacoma Falls Christian Radio. "Sweb Apps helped us accomplish our goals, and we are able to see in real-time how our listeners are interacting with our app, and what buttons are the most effective through the App Tracker."

Building an app with Sweb Apps is simple, and takes just a few easy steps. First, the user selects their industry or type of business, either by choosing a template from specific categories or customizing one on their own. Next, they select the buttons they would like their app to include and submit the desired information. Once these steps are completed, the application is submitted to SwebApps, and the system uploads the app to the iTunes store. The creator is notified once their app appears in the store, and they are then able to share the news with their customers. One their application is live, users can access a Content Management System, giving them the ability to edit, cancel or add updates in real time.

Sweb Apps has become a favorite of small and big businesses alike, and since launching in August 2009, the company has seen a 400% sales increase. The company recently introduced a new Rich Internet Application function that makes it the first and only Web site to let users view their landing page in real-time as they are building their iPhone application. The feature also gives users more control of their branding by allowing them to customize their app with buttons and background images, all on one screen.

Sweb Apps has four, six, and eight button packages. If they choose to use the App Tracker option, non-profit organizations are only required to pay a fee of $25 a month for the service. More information about Sweb Apps is available at (
