Wowio launches new mobile version of its eBook distribution platform
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif.– May 28, 2014 — Wowio, Inc., a digital media company with a patented process for inserting ads into eBooks, a mobile eBook distribution platform, and a proprietary mobile ad network, today announced that it is launching a new mobile version of its eBook distribution platform with over 350,000 titles from IngramBooks. The app will be available this week on the Android operating system through GooglePlay and will be released soon on Windows Mobile and the iOS mobile platforms in the next quarter.
We have been developing our mobile app for quite some time with our business partners Akyumen Technologies and we are excited about launching this new expansion of our business model with such a large library of fantastic titles,” said Brian Altounian, Wowio’s President and CEO. “With the explosive growth of mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones across multiple wireless carriers, we believe that mobile represents the largest growth sector for digital publishing,” he said. “We wanted to establish a new way to reach a broad audience and the titles provided by IngramBooks represent the most sought-after books that will appeal to readers in the highly coveted 18-44 age range. This will set the stage for when we launch the second iteration of our mobile app that will take advantage of our patent and provide free, ad-supported eBooks for our readers later this year.”
By utilizing this patent, Wowio, whose common stock was recently approved for trading on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board, has created an additional way to expand revenue streams for all stakeholders while making published content accessible to a global market. The company is engaged in digital media creation and content distribution and committed to developing, producing and distributing entertainment properties across the digital media landscape.
