theIRapp™ Introduces First Mobile Solution for Providing Live, Streaming Media across Investor Relations Apps Launch of Version 5.0 Includes Expanded Homepage, Customizable Content Folders and Sub-folders, Registration Option and New Content Management System
NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- theIRapp™ today launched Version 5.0 of its mobile native app technology platform for iPhone, iPad and Android devices. In response to requests from its subscribers and the professional investment community, the new version of theIRapp allows companies to live stream audio and video content including conference calls, webinars, live events and presentations via theIRapp.
Version 5.0 also introduces an expanded homepage, the ability to organize content into customized folders and subfolders, and an option to require a log-in and registration. A new content management system (CMS) interface is being introduced that enhances the current app analytics available for a company to measure app usage and engagement as well as give companies greater control over the content categories and organization of their IR app.
Jeff Corbin, founder of theIRapp, said, "The ability to stream live content through theIRapp demonstrates the real power of the native app as a communications platform, and something not available through a mobile optimized website. Given the fact that the mobile device possesses audio, video and telecommunications, theIRapp now provides companies with an ecosystem through which to bring companies together in real time with their targeted audiences, especially investors."
Corbin added: "theIRapp has an extensive product development pipeline that takes us through 2014. As promised, we will continue to roll out new functionality and enhance our platform on at least a quarterly basis. This is our commitment to being the leading native app communications technology platform on the market for both public and private companies."
Additional updates launched today include the grouping of different content types (video, audio, or documents) into single folders within the app, and the inclusion of an optional policy (privacy, confidentiality, etc.) for the end user to agree with prior to viewing a company's content.
