Tech Company Releases Mobile App for Men, Teams Up with Popular Fan Pages for Promo Contest(August 10, 2011)
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 10, 2011
Want a wingman in your pocket? Theres an app for that. Bro Lifeline is loaded with fake background sounds, pick-up lines, pep talks, and excuses that are all designed to help guys out. Moreover, the app has a built-in sharing capability that lets users easily send the content via email or SMS.
Fake Background Sounds
The fake background noises feature of Bro Lifeline simulates sounds of different locations, such as being stuck in traffic, in a train station, in the bathroom, having car trouble, and more. This also encourages users to let their buddies download the app, so that his friends can help him get out of an awkward phone call. If he happens to be in a place that hes not supposed to, he can just let one his friends play one of the sounds using his phone so that the unwanted (but necessary call) can be taken care of.
Those with an iPhone 3GS model or earlier can actually enjoy the Fake Background feature using their handset alone. iPhone models prior to the iPhone 4 allow the app to play the background noise while the user is on a call, effectively creating a completely different environment during the conversation.
Pick Up Lines
Bro Lifeline is loaded with pick up lines from four categories: funny, sweet, safe, and dirty. Users can simply select a category, and generate pick up lines with a tap of a button, or by shaking their phone. They can even text or email the lines to their friends.
The pep talk feature of Bro Lifeline is made for guys (or guys who have friends) that are going through a breakup, cant talk to a girl, or getting married. By tapping a button or shaking their phone, users will be able to generate words of encouragement to help him (or his friends) get through difficult situations.
The app can also generate excuses and alibis for certain sticky situations, including getting out of a speeding ticket, being late or absent for work, and avoiding a bad date.
Partnerships with Fan Pages
According to John Nicasio, CEO of TechiXoft, the inspiration for the app is Barney Stinson, a fictional character in the popular sitcom How I Met Your Mother. Motivated by Stinsons antics as a wingman or bro to his male friends in the show, the developers at TechiXoft decided to create an app that would serve as a wingman.
In line with this, TechiXoft has partnered up popular How I Met Your Mother fan pages on Facebook, including Barney Stinsons Only Rule, Bro Code Inc, Mr. Awesome and That moment you slap your friend in the face because they don't like HIMYM. We knew that Bro Lifeline will really speak to the fans of the show, so we decided to team up with How I Met Your Mother fan pages so that we can reach out to Barney Stinson fanatics said Nicasio. The company decided to target them specifically because these are individuals who will appreciate the app the most.
Nicasio commended their online partners stating that, The guys who run these fan pages have done a great job in engaging their fans. They truly understand the purpose of social media, which is one of the reasons why we decided to team up with them.
To further promote Bro Lifeline, TechiXoft is giving away a prize package consisting of three books authored by Barney Stinson. In a contest called The Ultimate Bro Giveaway, one lucky person will take home The Bro Code, Bro on the Go, and The Playbook simply by liking the TechiXoft Facebook page. However, entrants can also increase their chances of winning by downloading and rating the Bro Lifeline app on their smartphone.
