Cincinatti, Ohio Topples New York City, NY as the Bedbug CapitalApple iPhone App Allows Users to Check for Infestations and Submit Sightings in Real-Time Based on Geolocation (July 18, 2011)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 07/18/11 -- With bedbug infestations on the rise, Apps Genius Corp. (OTCBB: APGS) (www.appsgenius.com), the developer and publisher of social games and software applications, recently updated its Bed Bug Alert app for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch with a new list of the top ten US cities with bedbug outbreaks. The Bed Bug Alert app is currently available for $1.99 from the Apple Store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bed-bug-alert/id397206377).
According to the various tracking and reporting methods used to identify bedbug outbreaks, Cincinnati, Ohio now is the most bedbug infested city in the United States, a position long time held by New York City.
Featured by The New York Times and USA Today, Apps Genius' Bed Bug Alert app provides the public with easy-to-access updates on bedbug infestations in their area based on the users' geographic location or via maps of bedbug infestations in ten major U.S. cities. Users can also contribute to the Bed Bug Alert's database of infestations, providing new bedbug locations for other users to avoid.
"Apps Genius will continuously monitor news outlets and other sources of bedbug infestations, and update Bed Bug Alert with new locations where sightings are occurring and have occurred. I never go to any hotel, movie theater or other public place without first checking it out on Bed Bug Alert. I am happy to say that I have remained Bed Bug Free and plan to remain that way," said Adam Kotkin, CEO of Apps Genius.
