Oregon, October 23, 2007 – Today James Whitley and Rob Monster announced the launch of GoLife Mobile, a corporation creating an innovative cross-device mobile applications platform that will significantly accelerate global consumer application development and adoption.
GoLife Mobile’s extensible system will enable users to rapidly deploy everyday lifestyle widgets on virtually any mobile device world-wide. Users will experience an entirely new level of interaction with their environment which seamlessly blends together the mobile, virtual and physical worlds thus creating a customizable Life Operating System™.
“Mobile lifestyle applications are the next frontier of the technology era. GoLife is the first to develop a platform that enables even non-programmers to create mobile applications which make the Internet both mobile and personal,” said James Whitley, CEO of GoLife Mobile Corporation. “For example, using our system your mobile device could: notify you when somebody who matches your online dating profile is within your vicinity at the bar, tell you what their favorite drink is, enable you to custom mix a cocktail for them, pay for the drink, have it served, and queue up their favorite song on the jukebox. And that is just one simple scenario. The possibilities are limitless.”
Mounir Shita, Founder and President of Technology for GoLife Mobile Corporation explains, “Our patent-pending technologies will encourage the rapid creation of compelling socially-linked lifestyle
applications by developers. GoLife Mobile’s data-driven platform is user-centric, graphically oriented, community driven and integrated with popular social networking platforms.”
Most carriers today have different plans for voice and data, but the marketplace is changing according to an Analysys research report. "Mobile data will take up rapidly in the next few years, fueled by an increasing adoption of an open approach to the mobile internet, flat-rate data pricing and ongoing deployment of HSPA (high-speed packet access)," said report co-author Dr Yanli Suo- Saunders.
“With over 3 billion mobile devices world-wide, the mobile application space represents a tremendous opportunity. However, mainstream consumers are not likely to purchase a $499 phone with a monthly data plan. GoLife Mobile fills the void and brings useful applications to the global masses.” said Rob Monster, Chairman of GoLife Mobile Corporation and Managing Director of Monster Venture Partners, an early stage venture capital firm based in Seattle. GoLife will also GOLIFE MOBILE CORPORATION GOLIFE MOBILE CORPORATION PAGE 2 leverage Monster Venture Partners’ network of best-of-breed content and distribution channels such as Demoxi and the Internet Real Estate Group which is the parent company of a portfolio of domain names such as software.com, phone.com, and sweepstakes.com.
