The Gang became aware of the introduction of the brand new WCCO iPad app and we just had to talk with the CEO of one of this State’s premiere mobile development organizations, DoApp, who built that app for WCCO. DoApp is much more than just an app developer (e.g., Mobile Local News strategy with: iPhone & Android apps; integrations to media company news systems; and now a mobile ad platform) and Wade Beavers talks about this as well as revealing his thoughts on building for Android tablets and what that’s like (which is worth listening to for its own sake!).
Discussed during the show:
- The launch of three local news apps for the iPad in one week: St. Paul Pioneer Press, StarTribune & WCCO
- Lots of Android tablets (shown at CES…not yet all shipped) and Ars Technica explains Android Fragmentation
The Minnov8 Gang will off the next two Friday’s and back on Friday, September 2nd with an all new show!
