Browser and mobile app publishing network Conduit has announced support for iPad app creation on the Conduit Mobile platform, as well as some new social features that will allow users to connect more deeply from within the app itself.
Conduit is the largest global network of browser and mobile app publishers with over 260,000 members and their 230 million users. Conduit Mobile allows publishers to create one mobile app that is suitable for all major smartphone devices and now also for iPads.
When creating a mobile app on the platform, an optimized iPad version is automatically created as well. These Conduit-powered apps will feature enhanced graphics suited for the relevant Apple device. Customized styling for iPads, including integration of different graphics for the iPad’s higher resolution, will help publishers create unique and one-of-a-kind tablet apps.
The newly available social features will help in promoting Conduit-powered apps by allowing users to share app content on their Facebook walls and via email. Additionally, when app users share content on Facebook, the post will include a link to the app page.
“Our mission is to provide our publishers with engagement tools for every platform on which their users spend time,” says Conduit president Adam Boyden. “Tablet usage is growing exponentially, it was only natural that we be able to extend the power of the Conduit Mobile platform to the iPad. The addition of tablet support and the recent addition of website solutions via the acquisition of Wibiya, provide our publishers with an unmatched set of resources for acquiring and engaging their users.”
Last month Conduit announced the acquisition of leading web application solutions provider Wibiya, extending Conduit's offering from browsers and mobile devices to publishers’ websites. The Conduit Mobile platform is free to use. Customers can also monetize apps through an integrated targeted advertising module.
