Case Study: Android Surge

Case Study: Android Surge

This year we put an emphasis on Android. First with the Picturizr Android version launched in March, which saw a 5x increase in user traffic over iOS. Second, we launched FaceSmash for Android in May and saw a 3x increase in user traffic. We attribute the surge in traffic due to Android now having a larger user penetration over iOS as well as the large young demographic that have Android smartphones over iOS devices.

Leveraging our successful Picturizr photo manipulation platform we created a fun social game allowing friends to challenge each other through a face smashing mobile app.  The app allows you to take a photo and using the touch screen combined with the shake gesture of the iPhone to launch punches causing various image distortion effects.

ISBX Interviews Eddie Marks of Inedible Software

We love mobile apps.  We really do, and not just because it helps put food on the table, but because we truly believe it is an expanding market with limitless potential.  We are known for iphone app development… We've developed resource apps for law firms, engineering calculator apps, ecard apps, survey apps, television show apps, apps that make fart sounds, apps for celebrities, apps for big box retail brands, apps as a business tool for enterprises, and even apps that allow you put funny hats on people.  And yet, with all the apps we’ve produced, we’re occasionally blown away by a couple of developers that manage to trump our efforts, with just a single app.
