Robert Scoble caught up with our very own Co-founder and Creative Director, Brock Batten, at the Smash Summit in San Francisco. Robert has recently joined the Mobile Roadie family with his very own app, and wanted to take a moment to talk with Brock about the app and do a little live demo for his video channel on YouTube.
One of the major features, as Brock points out, is that any changes you make in the back end information for a Mobile Roadie app gets updated instantly. The idea is to focus on the user experience and create as robust an experience as possible. Using Facebook and Twitter integration in the apps enables our customers to have their users spread the app virally.
Cost was also discussed, and the realization is that to build an app from scratch could cost upwards of $20,000, which is a turn-off for many who would like an app. Using software as a service, Mobile Roadie eliminates this problem.
Robert mentions during the video that he’s happy with the back end CMS system that allows him to easily log in and make changes. His app is also integrated with his YouTube and Twitter accounts, as well as providing the Fan Wall, which fans can use as a type of chat room as well.
It seems that Robert Scoble, long-time tech blogger and lover of all things tech, has found his app home with Mobile Roadie. If it’s good enough for him, what are you waiting for? $500 set-up fee and $30 a month for the CMS services … it just doesn’t get any better than that.
