IMAMLocal

IMAMLocal is a mobile app developer that has recently created a local browser-based mobile app store for a media company, and is interested in additional partnerships. The software relies on "save to home screen" native functionality to allow icons to be placed on the home screens of mobile phones without going through the app store process.  In addition to icon placement both in the store, and the ability to market it for top of phone placement alone, the store’s merchants get a mobile web site and app that is seven pages deep. Functionality includes click-to-call and click-to-get directions from current location and push notifications, which show up as bubbles on top of the phone screen. With no advanced skills, merchants can update their web APP and mobile website 24/7 via their own business panel. Case study on WHTM ABC27TV that pioneered this use and sells packages starting at $4,000 a year is here.
