Push IO, a startup that offers a cloud-based mobile feature platform for developers has announced the acquisition of mobile app framework TapLynx from NewsGator. TapLynx will be re-released by Push IO this month with a series of new features. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
TapLynx, which was developed by NewsGator, allows users with limited coding knowledge to easily develop iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch Apps. Beyond just developing and publishing these apps, TapLynx allows users to monetize these apps through sponsorships, ads and download fees.
Push IO will be adding TapLynx’s service to its own fleet of mobile services that include push
notifications, in-app purchasing, data aggregation, and content delivery. Push IO says it will be adding both iAd support and in-app purchasing this month to TapLynx.
Push IO is the industrial strength mobile services provider. The company’s platform powers the most demanding applications for sports leagues, news broadcasters, and enterprises. The company has shipped more than five billion notifications to millions of users. Push IO was founded in 2009, is based in Boulder, Colorado and is self-financed and profitable.
