ZOMM Announces Mobile Android Application at CTIA Wireless 2011

ZOMM Named as CTIA Emerging Technology Awards Finalist in Two Categories

ORLANDO (March 22, 2011) – ZOMM, LLC (, a global technology company and developer of the world’s first Wireless Leash for cell phones, introduces its first mobile application. Available for all Android-powered smartphones, the myZOMM mobile app allows a more seamless user experience by being able to set up and manage all of the ZOMM features from the user’s mobile phone.

“Developing mobile applications was a natural next step for ZOMM, and we are excited to share the myZOMM mobile app at CTIA,” said Henry Penix, CEO of ZOMM, LLC. “The introduction of the myZOMM mobile app as well as being named as a CTIA Emerging Technology Award finalist continues to affirm ZOMM’s position as a leader in the global technology space.”

The myZOMM mobile app provides users a mobile platform to set up and adjust the device preferences, such as naming the ZOMM, muting the device, programming/changing the alert distance and programming/changing the emergency contact number. An added feature allows for an alert to be sent from the myZOMM mobile app directly to the ZOMM Wireless Leash. If the user has misplaced the device, keys, or other item to which the ZOMM is attached, they can now find them by initiating ZOMM’s alarm from their mobile phone. The app also provides the capability to program custom profiles allowing owners to choose if the ZOMM vibrates, flashes, sounds an alarm, or a combination, when the Bluetooth connection is broken.

CTIA Emerging Technology Awards Finalist

ZOMM has been named a finalist in the Mobile CE: Fashion & Lifestyle Products and Mobile CE: Accessories categories in the CTIA Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards. CTIA’s sixth annual E-Tech Awards program recognizes products in 14 categories. More than 80 prominent media and industry analysts judged the 300-plus entries submitted for the E-Tech Awards program. Products are judged on innovation, functionality, technological importance/impact, implementation and overall “wow” factor.

Using Bluetooth® technology, the keychain-sized ZOMM prevents users from losing or misplacing their mobile phone by vibrating, flashing lights and sounding an alarm when they separate from their phone. With added features of call notification, a fully functional speakerphone with a noise-canceling microphone for safe hands-free communication while driving and a personal safety device for emergencies, the ZOMM is the ultimate multi-functional accessory for any Bluetooth-enabled phone.

Created for ZOMM users, the myZOMM mobile app is available now in Beta form and available for a free download at

Latest ZOMM Happenings

As usual, things have been super busy in the ZOMM headquarters this fall.  We’ve been busy traveling to conferences like Opencamp and shows like CTIA’s Mobile Focus in order to spread the word about ZOMM.

That’s not all we’ve been doing to spread the word, though. Zac, the Z in ZOMM and our web designer, has been hard at work designing, updating and tweaking our website. Though every stage has looked great, we think the version up now is especially user-friendly. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Another way we’ve been spreading the word of ZOMM is through a national television commercial! The beautiful Cali Lewis serves as our spokesperson in the 30-second spot. Maybe you’ve seen it? It’s been running on FoxNews, Biography and G4 Channels. Make sure to let us know if you see it in your area! If you just can’t wait to see it on TV, visit our YouTube channel to see the commercial, and lots of other awesome ZOMM videos.

Have a great week everyone!
