Horn Group Launches iPhone App to Put Essential Information Right in the Hands of Clients, Prospects and Employees

Agency's Interactive Design Team Demonstrates Capabilities to Build a Mobile Presence for Clients and Their Brands

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 12, 2010) -  Horn Group, Inc., a top digital communications firm, today announced the availability of its very own mobile application for iPhone. Horn Group is the first agency of its kind to design an iPhone application that puts important agency news, information and contacts in the hands of its clients, prospects and employees. The application, available for download in the iTunes App Store, was designed and built entirely in house by Horn Group ID -- the agency's award-winning interactive design team. 

There is considerable interest among clients - and in the industry at large -- in being on the most popular mobile platforms. The introduction of Horn Group's first iPhone application showcases the new mobile capabilities of its interactive design practice Horn Group ID. For companies interested in establishing a presence in the App Store, Horn Group can quickly and affordably build applications like its own -- ideal for sales, marketing and employee communications. 

"Having a mobile presence is becoming as important as having a website. You have to be on the computer that people carry in their pockets," said Michael Mancuso, vice president of creative strategy at Horn Group. "But it's not enough to simply tweak your website for viewing on a small screen. Horn Group ID has hands-on experience designing mobile applications and we're very excited to introduce our first iPhone app today." 

Horn Group's iPhone application aggregates agency news, industry insights, and a handy directory of its entire staff ideal for clients and employees. Agency capabilities and a complete client portfolio make the application useful for prospects wanting to discover the firm from the convenience of their handset. Its next iteration will include push notifications, more social features, case studies from Horn Group's design and PR portfolios, and native Apple iPad support.
