MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 08/03/10 -- ZapEvent, a provider of web-based event tools, today announced the availability of Zap Apps, a service that enables consumers to find information for a variety of events such as marathons, art festivals and more directly on their mobile phones. Users will be able to access data such as dates, locations, maps, schedules, contact info, social media feeds and more.
As part of a partnership with Mobile On Services, ZapEvent.com will leverage the company's BuildAnApp platform to mobilize content about events and its online registration service and make it available via apps optimized for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile smartphones. In addition, ZapEvent.com will also offer a mobile browser version accessible with most mobile phones. Information might include maps, schedule information, contact information, social media feeds including Facebook and Twitter, news and results.
"The apps that we can create for our customers with BuildAnApp are a great complement to the services that we already offer. Now in addition to managing the registration for our customers' events, we can also provide them with a mobile app including all of the important data about their event that can be easily downloaded by their participants," said Jeff Wedren, president of ZapEvent.
"Zap Apps is a perfect example of the power of the BuildAnApp.com experience," said Scott Pearson, vice president of marketing for Mobile On Services. "Event organizers and other organizations looking to mobilize content can now provide apps for a variety of smartphone platforms and mobile handsets."
