"With On The Run Tech, we've created a platform to serve consumers wherever they go, bridging the gap between mobile commerce and physical goods with personalized convenience. This means a suite of native applications for iOS, Android and Windows that allow them to share content and imagery both online and offline, through physical keepsakes," said Josh Brooks, founder and CEO of On The Run Tech.
