Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 03, 2012

Xtify, the leading provider of mobile engagement technology, today, at the Retail RAMP conference, announced the launch of Xtify Retail Services, a retailer-focused marketing platform and managed services offering. The hybrid offering enables retailers to more effectively engage, measure, and understand their mobile customers.

Xtify helps a number of top retailers influence purchase intent and brand engagement by allowing marketers to message customers based on personal preferences, marketer-defined segments, application usage behavior, and real-time location triggers - even when that retailer’s app itself is not open. The Xtify platform has an open architecture for easy integration into existing retailer systems.

With Xtify Retail Services, Xtify further simplifies mobile engagement by helping retailers:
    Repurpose existing marketing materials from other digital and mobile channels    Load retailer locations, and those of competitors, into the Xtify system for active campaign use in conjunction with other targeting criteria    Upload marketing lists and segments so they are available for message delivery    Personalize messaging by integrating retailer CRM systems, point of sale systems, and coupon fulfillment platforms for 1:1 messaging, delivered via push notification    Attribute in-store, online, and mobile conversions to push notification campaigns via easy-to-integrate campaign performance beacons    Monitor campaign performance and generate retailer-specific user, campaign, and channel-level analytics    Perform system integration project management and quality assurance reviews

“The technology and resource demands on today’s retail marketers are multiplying every day - managing the message across multiple digital, mobile and print channels is a challenge to plan, and almost overwhelming, to execute,” said Josh Schiffman, SVP Strategy and Operations at Xtify. “Xtify’s Retail Services simplify the task of cost effectively reaching the retail brands’ most loyal customers - those that downloaded the retailer’s app to engage with the brand.”

“Xtify’s existing retail customers have told us that sending the right message to their most loyal customers drives significant customer satisfaction and importantly, quantifiable ROI. Helping our retail partners get the most out of their smartphone and tablet application channel is our mission,” said Josh Schiffman.

Boomie vs Pirates First Live Gameplay Video is Released by Appiteks

Edwardsville, IL (PRWEB) September 28, 2012

Appiteks Chief Operating Officer Chris Luck announced today that the company has created a video that takes customers by the hand and walks them step-by-step through its first game, Boomie vs Pirates.

“What this does is give gamers and those considering the game a good feel for it,” Luck said. “We know that these days, people are more visual than ever, so to keep our customers from having to pour through countless pages of instructions, we’ve created a video that walks them right through the game.”

Luck explained that although Boomie vs Pirates is easy to play without written instructions, he believes adding the video will make the playing experience that much more enjoyable.

“The more that you can help your customers out, the better off you will be as a company,” Luck said. “We never want anyone to be confused on how the game we develop work or have to wonder what the point of the game is.”

The chief operating officer noted that the video serves as an additional outlet for current customers and potential customers to have more hands-on before they buy the game and even after they purchase it.

“We know for a fact that our game is an awesome game to play, but what better way to ensure that everyone who tries the game knows the inner workings of it than by providing a step-by-step video,” Luck questioned. “Everything we do, we do it with excellence and this video is nothing short of excellent.”

Luck stressed that Appiteks is determined to win over customers with superior customer service and developing the quality of iOS games that aren’t available at other companies.

“We’re ready to totally dominate the industry,” Luck said. “The games that we develop are awesome and the video that walks people through the games are awesome too.”

New WoW Mists of Pandaria Dailies and Events Guide Helps Players Reach...

(PRWEB) October 03, 2012

Once players reach level 90 in World of Warcraft, one of the most popular activities (especially when playing solo) is the completion of daily quests.

Daily quests are one aspect of World of Warcraft familiar to all players. Whether they are casual or hardcore, poor or rich, a PvPer or a Raider, all players have to do at least some daily quests in order to unlock enchants for their shoulders.

However, there is more to it than just earning new enchants. Completion of hundreds if not thousands of daily quests are also necessary in order to unlock achievements and earn other useful items like mounts, pets, and new recipes.

The problem most players have with daily quests is that they can be downright boring. For the first week or two of a new expansion they can be entertaining, but players tend to get bored after completing the same quest for the fiftieth time.

Dugi's Ultimate WoW Guide seeks to change this with their Mists of Pandaria update to their Dailies and Events guide. This guide is based on Dugi's famous leveling software that directs players to NPCs for quest pick-up, to objectives to complete the quest, and then back to the NPCs for completion. The Dailies and Events guide uses this same software but updates the path for dailies and events.

With this guide, players will be able to turn it on for a specific faction or just to earn gold through the completion of daily quests. Upon doing that, the guide directs players to the rest. Early reviews of this software guide are favorable.

In addition to helping players out with daily quests, this new guide also helps players with WoW Mists of Pandaria events such as Hallow's End. Players who want to get back to dungeons or PvP can use Dugi's Guide for events in order to unlock extra achievements in a short amount of time.

Angry Yeti: Protect the Endangered Yetis & Have Fun

Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) October 02, 2012

Brink 3D Studios, has officially put the mobile gaming industry on notice: mobile games that do not offer Angry Yeti’s intriguing gameplay will soon be as outdated as typewriters are today.
The game takes place in the Tibetan mountains where a group of Yetis was out playing. Suddenly, a team of researchers saw the Yetis and captured them. An Angry Yeti, known as Moody, was sleeping nearby and was not captured. Help Moody become a hero and rescue his friends.

The objective of the game is to catch the vehicle that has his friends captured and rescue them, one by one. As Moody rolls he can collect snow and grow in size. Each time the player presses the roll button, the Yeti rolls faster. If the Yeti has become too big and slow, the player can choose to drop some snow off by pressing the relative button. By collecting an animal or an item he gets points; bigger animals, more points.

Angry Yeti is a casual game created with the Unity 3D game engine offering highly polished graphics. The developers incorporated feedback from gamers in Canada and Mexico, thus allowing the creation of a game that is simple to play and offers a repayable experience.
Download Angry Yeti via the Appstore for Apple mobile devices with iOS 3.1.3 or higher and via the Google Play Store for Android mobile devices with Android 2.2 or higher and an armv7 processor.

Brink 3D is a mobile software development company, based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The company was founded in 2012 with the specific goal of creating advanced GIS applications and games for Android, iOS, Windows Phone 8 and the OUYA TV gaming console.
