SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Widgetbox™, the leader in audience engagement through web and mobile technologies, today announced the launch of Widgetbox Mobile, a mobile app service that allows businesses of all sizes to easily make and distribute a feature-rich mobile app in minutes without writing any code.

"One of the key features of our mobile web apps is that they are built with HTML5, providing an attractive alternate to traditional mobile app development while still providing users with the rich look and feel of native applications and allowing for distribution options beyond the app stores," said Giles Goodwin, co-founder and chief technology officer, Widgetbox.

"Given my recent experience at AdMob, I am very optimistic about the potential for deep customer engagement on mobile devices. I joined the Widgetbox Board of Directors because I believe Widgetbox is a leader in developing mobile customer experiences that are deeply engaging and effective, as well as being easy to develop for businesses of all types, which is a powerful value proposition in today's mobile market," said Ali Diab, former vice president of product management at AdMob.

Widgetbox Mobile is powered by the Widgetbox Engagement Platform™, the innovative technology platform that has successfully delivered over 20 billion impressions to over a 100 million monthly viewers. The Widgetbox Engagement Platform™ also powers Widgetbox's other product offerings including ClickTurn real-time rich media ads and web widgets.

"Widgetbox's Engagement Platform helps us both win new business and reduce the cost, time, and complexity associated with deploying highly-engaging applications," said Ekapat Chareonlarp, director of program development at IDG Communications.
