Waltham, Mass. — July 7
Brainshark Inc., a cloud-based software company, announced the immediate availability of the Brainshark App, downloadable for free in Google’s Android Market. This application provides a more interactive experience for users when they view Brainshark video presentations on Android-based smartphones and tablets.
The Brainshark App enables a browsing and viewing experience on Android phones and tablets. Android smartphones are increasingly popular among people today. According to forecasts from Gartner Inc., Android will become the most popular operating system for smartphones worldwide by the end of this year, and reach a share of 49.2 percent of the smartphone market in 2012. Users of RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook can also download Brainshark’s free app from the Android Market.
“For many companies today, the need to communicate with mobile audiences is a given – but getting recipients to actually access content can be another story,” said Bill Pray, research director for content and collaboration, Gartner, Inc. “In order to be truly effective, content must not only be engaging, but easy to find, view and share on smartphones and tablets. Making content easily available on the variety of popular mobile operating systems is important – enabling users to conveniently consume presentations and other business content.”
