A Decade in the Market, Semaphore Mobile Building from the Start, Updating, and APPsolutely Upgrading the Industry

It’s a given now that there’s an “app for that,” with millions on the market, but a decade ago when the first products were introduced few were in the know.  Dallas-based Semaphore Mobile was there and on the board at the start with a well-known piece connecting shoppers to vendors, job seekers to employers and more. In the last 1o years thousands of companies have entered the market to produce and provide – Semaphore Mobile tops in the Metroplex with close to 400 iPhone and nearly 300 Android products completed.

“Mobile applications are much more complicated and the excitement of what we create, and how we can meet our clients’ needs grows with every app,” said Eric Silverthorn, Semaphore Mobile’s founder and president.  “Our team is intuitive, talented, and sharp and our clients expect, are receiving, tools that meet the market’s influx of new and upgraded phones, tablets, and accessories.  We’ve been building from the start, a dozen apps up the day the App Store opened, and we continue to thrive.”

There were 500 apps available on the App Store in its premiere summer, today that number is over two million, and for Android users there are nearly another four million but Semaphore’s production calendar stays busy with organic customers and those who come back for more.

“The constant iteration in the life of an app is something we work with all the time and we’re proud of the relationship we have with our customers, glad always to help their product remain cued,” said Silverthorn.

Semaphore’s products includes apps included those for health care, entertainment, E-commerce, browser applications, mobile network monitoring tools, points of interest GPS/triangulation location, GSM remote command, control of industrial equipment, and security software message encryption.

“At Semaphore Mobile, we’ve adjusted our business as tech has changed and as the needs of our clients has changed,” said Silverthorn.  “Our breath of experience allows our clients to believe in us and a decade later we are doing our best work.”

Happy Anniversary App Store – Semaphore Mobile, There from the Start, Wishes the Best

This month marks a decade since the Apple Store opened and Dallas-area based mobile app developer Semaphore Mobile has been there from the start.  With a dozen apps loaded from the go, and nearly 400 since – along with almost 300 Android system apps, the Dallas-based company isn’t slowing down anytime soon.

“It’s been a great 10 years and we look forward to continuing the service and success we have in the future,” said Semaphore Mobile’s founder and President, Eric Silverthorn, whose development team is locally based, more than 20-percent of the company’s business from organizations who first ventured with overseas groups.  “Everyday this business changes and we are growing right along with it.  Our experience, and the value of our developers, managers, and admin team, is something our clients can count on.”

Millions have found an “app for that,” and Silverthorn – his team at Semaphore Mobile one of the mobile app industry’s development forerunners, long before the Apple tree was planted.

In 2002, a Liberia-based client of Semaphore Mobile requested the ability for security and productivity tools.  With Blackberry and Nokia at the helm of the market, Semaphore Mobile created a format that focused on the provision of mobile application software solutions to enterprise customers.  The product line expanded to include the prototyping and development of industrial control systems that interconnect to mobile networks, and Semaphore Mobile’s products allowed users to transmit and receive data in remote environments – services which continue today.

With the 2008 announcement that Apple would be hosting software applications used on iPhone and iTouch devices, it was a natural transition for Semaphore Mobile to enter the mobile app development arena.

There were 500 apps available on the App Store in its premiere summer, today that number is over two million, and for Android users there are nearly another four million.  That’s a lot of competition, and the Dallas mobile development field has grown – with many companies that come – and go – in a blink.  The Semaphore Mobile App development team has survived, and grown stronger.

“It was seamless for us to take the  internal communication tools we’d been building for years and develop them for the masses, for industry, for entertainment, for social communications, and really in an unlimited realm for public market,” said Silverthorn.  “Day one on the App Store we loaded a Craigslist App and from there we’ve built hundreds for dozens of industries and interests.  The possibilities are as varied as the need and the creative concepts that cross our desks.”

Throughout the country and indeed in North Texas, entrepreneurship has flourished and continues to do so with co-working spaces, online commerce, and businesses small and large being introduced it seems weekly.  For Semaphore Mobile, that community has provided opportunity, and for the community, Semaphore Mobile provides fulfillment.

“We work both with established businesses and startups, assisting with developing mobile applications and backend systems,” said Silverthorn, an entrepreneur who understands the mind, needs, and dreams of his clientele.

Semaphore Mobile’s mobile application development has supported entertainment, health care, browser, e-commerce, mobile network monitoring tools, points of interest GPS/triangulation location, GSM remote command and control of industrial equipment, security software message encryption, and more.

“We have clients who’ve come back to us for updates and upgrades, for second and third new applications,” said Silverthorn.  “The idea that there’s an ‘App for that’ is real, and despite the millions out there, at Semaphore Mobile, we aren’t slowing down and our creativity, and ability to help our clients succeed, builds with every opportunity.”

Happy Birthday App Store – Semaphore Mobile looks forward to another decade, and those that follow.
