In the Future, People Won't Search for Apps; Apps Will Find PeopleNew "Mobile Brain" From MEDL Mobile Connects Apps to Users and Solves the "Discovery" Problem in Current Mobile App Ecosystem (November 15, 2011)
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/11 -- MEDL Mobile Holdings Inc. (OTCBB: MEDL) (OTCQB: MEDL), a leader in mobile apps development, announced today the creation of a breakthrough "Mobile Brain" technology that, unlike other recommendation engines or app discovery tools, requires no registration and allows apps to start finding users the moment they download their first app from MEDL Mobile's apps library. The patent-pending "Mobile Brain" technology solves the app discovery problem for overwhelmed users by building a "mobile lifestyle" profile for each user, which grows smarter with every use, and works without users having to do anything. A beta version of the "Mobile Brain" is already currently running behind several of MEDL's apps.
"The mobile apps space is overwhelming for users and app developers alike," said Andrew Maltin, co-founder and CEO of MEDL Mobile. "It's almost impossible for people to find apps and apps to find people, until now. The Mobile Brain starts working with the very first app download and is unlike any other technology in the mobile apps marketplace. We believe the Mobile Brain will completely transform the app discovery process."
With 600,000-plus apps in Apple's App Store and 300,000-plus apps in the Android Marketplace, discovery is a major issue both for users looking for compelling apps and app developers trying to find their target audience. This is one of the reasons why a study by Localytics indicated that only one out of every four mobile apps downloaded are used after the initial download. The Mobile Brain analyzes the user's app references, usage habits, likes, dislikes and a variety of other factors to develop the user's "mobile lifestyle" profile. Based on this profile, the Mobile Brain pushes relevant apps to the user, getting smarter with each interaction. The Mobile Brain helps users find apps they will love and use without them proactively doing anything other than download their first MEDL mobile app.
MEDL Mobile's "Mobile Brain" provides a system and method for characterizing and quantifying a person's interests using a computing algorithm to assign certain lifestyle characteristics and a numerical value to the importance of a particular lifestyle trait. The Mobile Brain evaluates the usage history of every mobile app by each individual user to evaluate the user's interests. The engine then uses the data to develop a dynamic digital portrait of the user in order to recommend other applications.
The company is now conducting a private beta of the MEDL API, the technology that powers the Mobile Brain. Developers interested in submitting their apps for consideration in the private beta can visit www.medlmobile.com/alliance or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
