Wmode to Launch AppCarousel at Open Mobile Summit

Brands, Media Companies, and Enterprises Can Now Showcase the Apps They Care About to the People That Care About Them

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 27, 2011) - Wmode announces the launch of AppCarousel, the new paradigm for the merchandising and discovery of mobile apps.

Consumers have difficulty finding relevant quality apps because they have to browse through huge app stores. AppCarousel enables them to easily view and access groups of apps and content targeted to their specific interests or from the brands and organizations they trust. This is achieved by creating visually engaging 3D app carousels they can view on any smartphone, tablet, or desktop. These carousels can easily be shared, leveraging the power of personal recommendation and social networking to aid in app discovery.

AppCarousel is working with brands, publishers, software companies, developers, enterprises, wireless carriers and device manufacturers. It enables them to showcase the digital content they want to get in front of their customers by distributing branded carousels that are easy to spin up, customize, and target as part of their strategic marketing programs.

"Wmode has a long history of providing solutions for distributing mobile content. As the digital media industry continues to grow at an unbounded pace, AppCarousel is a natural progression of our business," said Emanuel Bertolin, Chief Executive Officer of Wmode Inc. "The ability for organizations to easily curate and share relevant content with their audience was an obvious gap in the app economy."

Wmode's Head of Market Development, Terry Hughes, has been appointed as Managing Director of AppCarousel Inc., which is based in San Francisco.

Terry Hughes, Managing Director of AppCarousel, commented, "What excites us about AppCarousel is the strong validation we have received from the biggest to smallest players in the app ecosystem. They tell us that although they have strong brands and rich content to distribute to their users across all platforms, it gets lost in the maze of fragmented content stores. For them it comes down to two things; better merchandizing and easier discovery. AppCarousel is well positioned to help on both fronts."
