ZOMM Named as CTIA Emerging Technology Awards Finalist in Two Categories
ORLANDO (March 22, 2011) – ZOMM, LLC (zomm.com), 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. To sign up as a beta tester, visit zomm.com/beta.
“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 zomm.com/beta.
