SEATTLE, June 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- theIRapp™ (www.theIRapp.com), the only investor relations app building solution that allows publicly traded companies to optimize their IR content for iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices, today launched Version 2.0 with features that further engage shareholders and attract potential investors.
theIRapp™ Version 2.0 was launched during the National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI) 2012 Annual conference in Seattle Washington among a crowd of industry leaders who recognize the importance of investor relations mobile engagement and who are looking for a turnkey IR app building solution.
theIRapp™ allows a company to optimize its IR content so critical information is easy to view and interact with on mobile devices. By simply providing its ticker symbol and corporate logo, a public company can have its own highly-customized mobile app ready in only a few weeks at considerably reduced time, cost and effort. theIRapp™ removes the need for a company to hire an app developer or utilize internal IT or web development resources.

- Push notifications alerting investors when new information is available
- Investor sign-up for company information
- Investor email opt-in
- Information sharing via social media channels and email

"Publicly traded companies are now recognizing the importance of providing investors with information that they can easily obtain and view on their mobile devices," said Jeff Corbin, co-founder of theIRapp™. "An increasing number of forward-looking companies, such as Nestles, BP, Unilever and Walmart, have launched their own IR apps. Version 2.0 of theIRapp™ takes mobile investor relations to a completely new level. Now, any company can distribute its press releases, corporate materials, presentations, videos, audiocast conference calls and any other communications content to a significantly larger audience of current and potential investors. And, this can be done at a fraction of the cost a company would have to pay to develop an IR app on their own."
Corbin added, "theIRapp™ is focused exclusively on helping publicly traded companies with their investor relations mobile strategy. As mobile devices proliferate and change the way investors interact with companies, theIRapp™ will allow companies to stay ahead of the curve in how information is shared with investors anytime and anywhere. We will continue to build upon and enhance theIRapp™ to meet the evolving needs of publicly traded companies and their investors."
theIRapp™ has taken the lead in marketshare in the IR app space with companies such as SodaStream, Unilife, BioLineRx and MagneGas, among others, having subscribed to theIRapp™ platform that is now live on the App Store and Google Play (formerly Android Market).
