Mobile Roadie Releases iPad Preview Tool

Los Angeles-based Mobile Roadie is further enhancing its software tools, which help companies and brands create their own, mobile apps without programming, with the release of a new iPad software tool. The firm said this week that it has launched Mobile Roadie Connect for iPad, a tool which allows its users to preview and test out their applications on the iPad, before releasing that app. The firm said the new tool will decrease the chance of "mess-ups" before an app is submitted to go live. Mobile Roadie develops software--used by many brands, artists, celebrities, and companies--to create honed, interactive apps for smartphone and the iPad, which do not require programming to create. The firm's investors include Ashton Kutcher.
