Bedminster, NJ and Los Gatos, CA -- Rocket Mobile, Inc., a leading developer of wireless software solutions and technologies, is contributing to the Verizon Wireless national launch of over-the-air downloadable applications with the release of a compelling suite of productivity applications that help mobile professionals track expenses while traveling, carry out currency conversions and more.
The Rocket Mobile applications include MobileExpense(tm), which tracks a comprehensive list of expense items such as airline tickets, car rentals, meals, and cab fares. Users can quickly enter most expenses with just a few clicks. In addition, users can email their completed expense report to any Internet email account, directly from their mobile phone, minimizing the hassle of this trying task upon return to the office. The go2R Directory application is a "real world" search engine that makes it easy to find directory listings of destinations and businesses. MobileConverterTM enables on-the-go currency and measurement conversions.
"We are thrilled to see the nation's largest carrier, Verizon Wireless, take a leadership role with its national launch of downloadable applications. Starting this week, Rocket Mobile will have several applications available to Verizon Wireless consumers," said Wayne Yurtin, president and CEO of Rocket Mobile, Inc.
"Rocket Mobile continues to develop outstanding productivity applications that we think will add significant value to our customers," said John Stratton, vice president and chief marketing officer of Verizon Wireless. "Rocket Mobile's applications are easy to use and well positioned to fill the needs of our users."
Each productivity application published by Rocket Mobile for Verizon Wireless runs on QUALCOMM's Binary Runtime Environment for WirelessTM (BREWTM), an advanced platform which allows users to download the applications over the air. Verizon Wireless subscribers using a BREW-enabled wireless phone that is compatible with the application will be able to select, purchase and download productivity applications published by Rocket Mobile.
