Thwapr iPhone App Available in a White Label Version for BrandsWhite Label App Option Enables Mobile Video Sharing for Brands With Fast Time to Market and Reduced Costs (April 18, 2011)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 04/18/11 -- Thwapr, Inc. (OTCBB: THWI), a leading social mobile video sharing service, announced availability of its iPhone mobile video sharing app in a white label version for brand marketers.
Thwapr's iPhone app makes it easy and quick to capture video moments or upload them from the Camera Roll in order to share with friends and family or more broadly to social networks. Users can capture and share geo-tagged video with up to 30 minutes of recording time to more than 300 compatible mobile devices. Users can also subscribe to brand videos, receive and view these in the app, and post favorite content to Twitter and Facebook.
Thwapr is providing a white label version of its app in response to interest from brand marketers for a customized mobile video sharing experience. Building such an app from scratch is too costly, complicated and time consuming for most brands. Thwapr's solution offers a cost-effective approach, leveraging a robust platform. Brands can integrate visual identity into the iPhone app in order to create a branded video capture and share app experience coupled with a branded experience for mobile devices to receive video content.
The iPhone app platform is ideal for marketers to start with as Apple generates 83% of app revenue worldwide according to IHS Screen Digest (Feb 2011) with an installed base of more than 100 million mobile devices (source: Apple 2010). A branded mobile video app keeps fans and followers captivated to receive and share rich media while building a following and extending video reach into Facebook and Twitter. Sample use cases for the white label app version include: a broadcaster that creates contests for viewers so they can shoot their own video and publish the best material for live broadcast; a sports team that wants to let fans capture their favorite moments and share back with the team; essentially a unique two-way experience where brands can deliver media to fans, and fans can share brand content with each other and back to their favorite brand.
The white label app version is commercially provided with a customization fee to create a branded experience, a tiered monthly fee for usage based on mobile video views (with a six month minimum contract), and an estimated time to launch of four weeks. Pricing options are structured so that the solution can be affordable to small and mid-sized businesses as well as larger brands.
