TiVo, Starbucks, JP Morgan Chase and SafeMart Leverage Apple iPhone

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2011) - During this generation of iPods, iPads, and iPhones, companies are innovating to leverage their products on new platforms that never existed before the digital age. Companies like Starbucks and JP Morgan Chase create the products that define our daily and long-term lives, whether it's a simple cup of coffee or a complex financial investment for the future. Every new gadget that comes out gives other smart companies more than just another market. Digital inventions add another dimension to products we are already using.

"New technologies have changed our lives," said Chris Johnson, the CEO of SafeMart, which has been recognized by Inc magazine as one of the Inc 5000 fastest growing private companies in the country. "Smart phones have transformed what we do and how we do it every day."

Mobile device users have become accustomed to controlling much of their lives when they pick up their cell phone or tablet. TiVo has created an app that turns your smart phone into your remote control; Starbucks customers can now pay at stores by scanning their phones; people who bank with JP Morgan Chase can deposit checks using the camera on their iPhone; and SafeMart customers can control their home and keep their family safe on the same device that houses their favorite songs.

"People already use a computer, cell phone, or other mobile device to check the weather, manage bank accounts, and keep up with the latest news," Johnson said. "We make it just as easy for people to stay connected to what really matters most: your home and family."

The SafeMart app allows people to arm or disarm their own home security system from their mobile devices, provides real-time alerts by email and text message, and lets users know their home is secure no matter where they are.

TiVo, Starbucks, JP Morgan Chase and SafeMart are a handful of the businesses that have taken innovation from Cupertino and used it to add another dimension to their business. Meanwhile, the stream of new inventions and uses for them has changed the way we live our lives.
