LOS ANGELES, April 16, 2009 — Following the successful launch of MEDL Mobile's web-based App Incubator (appincubator.com), the company announces the launch of an App Incubator iPhone app. Using this new app, anyone with a concept for a mobile application can submit the idea directly to MEDL Mobile — anytime, anywhere.
As previously announced, the company has committed $2.5 million to the development of said applications across multiple mobile devices, such as the iPhone, Blackberry and Android.
"We've been blown away by the creativity of our 'developer' community," said Andrew Maltin, MEDL Mobile CEO. "In the few days since the app went live, we have received literally thousands of submissions — and lots of them are very good."
Each submission to the App Incubator is rated according to five criteria — Originality, Functionality, Simplicity, Revenue Potential and Fun. Apps that pass MEDL's scoring criteria go into development. All development and marketing costs are funded by MEDL Mobile and 25% of any profits go back to the originator of the idea. With some applications earning thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars a day, the App Incubator will allow people with great ideas for mobile applications to profit from their creativity.
Maltin also added, "We expect to build hundreds of these apps in the coming months. Our goal is to make many people lots of money and bring a whole new influx of creativity to the mobile marketplace."
MEDL Mobile also develops custom applications for third parties, advertising agencies and consumer brands.
