Charlotte Startup ‘Mimri’ Begins Development for Android Version of Social Media Application

 

CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 1, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Mimri, a video social media platform currently in it’s BETA, has recently finalized the first version of its iOS application and is accelerating development on it’s Android version of the application due to unexpected demand.

While the official Android release will trail the iOS release, it shouldn’t be far behind and will be getting design iterations as a result of the data gained from the iOS version so that it launches with the benefits of a refined system.

“The game-plan for Mimri has always been to have a cross-platform application, [however] the amount of time and work that you need to develop an app of this scope from scratch on either system is staggering… [new] technologies and platforms typically require a few major iterations before they become a truly compelling product and hit their stride, for us to get to the 2nd and 3rd iteration requires that [we] get a working version on the market as soon as we can… [We’ve] done this by focusing on iOS, but now that we’re collecting data we have the luxury to focus on cross-platform compatibility,” said Brian Evans, the founder and CEO of Mimri.

Amid recent reports that the combined market share for the Android OS has exceeded that of Apple’s iOS which pioneered the industry, the push to complete the Android version is perfectly timed.

“[We] were surprised to find demand for an Android version of our application greatly exceeded what we originally anticipated. While we’ve already made progress on the Android version of the app, we’re now focusing heavily on making sure that we move the development forward as rapidly as possible.”

Different media outlets, research studies, and even companies have offered analyses purporting to show how the market share between iOS and Android has shifted over the past few years, but regardless of the differences among these reports stands the unshakeable consensus that Android has been growing at a staggering speed.

Mr. Evans goes on to explain, “Regardless [of] the exact size of each platform, it’s not exactly groundbreaking news that, when combined, the two platforms compose nearly 100% of the smartphone market. If we were to select only one of the two, we could easily find ourselves throwing away half of our potential user-base.”

Mimri, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, currently boasts a development team of six Android Developers but is accepting applications for additional developers to join their team. “You can’t predict the future, but our confidence in the success of this product is exceedingly high. If you’re an Android developer who can add value to our team and reinforce the passionate culture of our company, we’re interested in talking to you.”
