One of the leading networks of forum communities on the Internet, CrowdGather, Inc. (OTCQB:CRWG), announced today that it has recently launched a mobile application for the Company’s largest hosted platform, Yuku.com. The new app was completed in partnership with the well-known mobile app development firm Tapatalk, which specializes in online forums. The new Yuku.com app is currently available in the Apple App Store as an ad-supported free version for iOS users, and the Company is working quickly toward an Android launch soon, as well as an ad-free version of the app, which will be available for a nominal fee.
“We are excited to launch the first mobile app for the Yuku platform,” said Sanjay Sabnani, CrowdGather’s Chairman and CEO. “As part of our strategy to better serve our communities, we are focused on ensuring our users can easily access their favorite forums on their mobile devices. Per Google’s analytics, we estimate we have over 10 to 15% of our total monthly page views from users on mobile devices accessing all of our hosted platforms and a few of our largest branded sites. Since the majority of those users, particularly on Yuku, are using Apple, Inc. devices, we launched the app in iOS first, and we are beginning to build our mobile advertising platform. Unlike traditional web browsers available on mobile devices, mobile apps provide an ability to better engage customers through customized ads, such as branded interstitials or concentrated geo-targeting.
“Additionally, with the advent of our ability to launch this app,” Sabnani continued, “we are also rolling out a new responsive design user interface for the Yuku platform, which looks great on mobile devices as well as on laptop and desktop computers. We continue to work hard toward developing and improving Yuku, and look forward to deploying new software features in the coming months.”
