Express Mobile's CDER™ Platform Integrates AOL Open APIs for Mobile Developers

Content Owners Can Now Integrate AOL Web Services as Mash-Ups for Rich Mobile Applications

NOVATO, CA--(Marketwire - February 17, 2009) - Express Mobile announces the integration of AOL's open APIs into the Express Mobile publishing platform, CDER™. The platform leverages open systems and enables non-programmers to easily create compelling mobile experiences and expose services like advertising, map directions, streaming video, instant messaging, chat, music, points-of-interest, local weather, entertainment events and news feeds.

Now users can experience great content and immersive experiences -- music, videos, pictures, news -- direct from their favorite artists. Artists and other content providers can publish directly to their listeners and fans, interact directly with their fan base and get feedback all through a simple download. Artists are back in control of their own works and can publish them to the mobile phone at the push of a switch. For those who manage Artists' name and Brand, control has now returned to the brand itself.

"AOL has a strong commitment to enabling mobile developers through open APIs and platforms. We are extremely pleased to work with Express Mobile in their integration of AOL's open APIs into the Express Mobile CDER platform," said Jai Jaisimha, Vice President, AOL Mobile. "The combination of AOL services and the capabilities of the CDER's WYSIWYG web services authoring capability promises to bring great consumer solutions to mobile phones."

"AOL has a comprehensive set of services and APIs that are very attractive to mobile developers and we are delighted to participate in enabling these capabilities across disparate device environments," said Steve Rempell, Express Mobile's CEO and Chief Technologist. "We anticipate content owners and application designers will use the platform and the integrated AOL Open Services APIs to rapidly develop mobile applications across operators and fragmented devices."

AOL offers open APIs for a number of its products and services including AIM, AOL Mail, Bebo, MapQuest, Truveo, and Winamp. For more information, visit the AOL Developer Network site at http://dev.aol.com
