NEW YORK, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- theIRapp™, the mobile technology IR app building platform, today launched FOLIO, an app designed specifically for investors and analysts. theIRappFOLIO allows investors who cover numerous companies to only have to download one app that contains all of the IR apps that the investor follows.
theIRappFOLIO was introduced today in Apple's App Store and Google Play as a free app for download. FOLIO is organized so that an investor can see all of his or her IR apps in one place, organize them by industry and have a continuous feed of new content issued by the companies. This stream of content feature is called the "Ticker" and allows for the aggregation of specific company generated content such as conference calls, videos, presentations, press releases, annual reports, SEC filings and more.
Jeff Corbin, founder of theIRapp said "during the past six months, dozens of companies have subscribed to theIRapp and have embraced the importance of having their investor relations content available to their investors in one place on the mobile device. They understand that a native app environment allows for easy access to company generated information that presently can only be obtained through the desktop and the company's IR section of its corporate website."
He continued, "In speaking with our subscribers as well as the buy-side and sell-side, we determined that there was a need to create a single IR app solution so investors do not need to download numerous IR apps. At the same time, we didn't want to lose the individuality and independence of each company's IR app. FOLIO accomplishes this."
Corbin concluded, "theIRappFOLIO is the beginning of the creation of an investor relations content mobile ecosystem through which investors now have access to all of the important information they need to keep apprised of the qualitative performance of the companies that exist in their portfolio. The native app environment is critical for companies to be able to push information to their investors and interact with them through rapidly evolving mobile technology. theIRapp intends to continue to develop its platform to ensure the most robust communications experience between public company and investor."
theIRapp recently launched Version 4.0 of its platform allowing for the download of all content for offline viewing and listening. Through FOLIO, investors can now download content such as audio conference calls, videos and presentations of all the companies they follow so that they can listen to or view them whenever they want (even when they are not in a WiFi or cellular zone). This feature removes the need for the investor to be relegated to the desktop. This important functionality is not available through HTML5 or responsive design optimized mobile websites. Version 4.0 builds upon previous versions of theIRapp that include the following functionality also now available through FOLIO:
- Push notifications/alerts when new information is added to a company's IR app
- Downloadable content for offline viewing
- Ability to add events to calendars
- Audio and Video Multimedia (including earnings conference calls)
- Unlimited content modules for proprietary company generated information including presentations, annual reports, SEC filings, press releases, etc.
- Content sharing via social media and email
- Horizontal/landscape viewing of content
