Athlone start-up is offering its apps for free this weekend

2 Dec 2010

iPhone app development company Moonswing is making its Bet Settler and Wedding Speechstake Apps available for free from the iTunes App store this weekend.

Moonswing designs and develops web and software applications, primarily for the iPhone, and developed its first app last year. Moonswing also provides software services to companies that wish to develop their own mobile applications.

Since its April launch, Moonswing’s first app, the betting calculator ‘Bet Settler’, has proved popular, reaching No 15 in the Paid Sports App category in the UK and No 2 in the same category in Ireland. Bet Settler was also named App of the Week on the website of Business Traveller – the global magazine for the frequent business traveller – in April.

The current version of ‘Bet Settler’ was released in September and incorporates a range of new bets that can be settled, including Round Robins and Flag bets.

Moonswing’s second app ‘Wedding Speechstake’ was released last month and brings the tradition of timing the speeches at a wedding to the iPhone.

“Wedding Speechstake is great fun for a table of friends at a wedding reception and also a wonderful conversation starter and ice breaker at a table where guests might not know each other.

“We’ve decided to give ‘Bet Settler’ and ‘Wedding Speechstake’ away for free this weekend, as it’s a year since we first started to develop apps for the iPhone and we think this is a nice way to mark the progress we’ve made to date,” said founder Tom Tierney.
