Good news for Portland’s own Urban Airship. They’ve got some very high profile clients, like Newsweek and The Atlantic magazines. And they’re getting some nice coverage in the NY Times for their products, which (in this case) help companies facilitate payments via mobile devices, like collecting $14.95 for a six-month Newsweek subscription on my iPad.
We’ll see how another UA client, the Democratic Party, fares tomorrow. According to the Urban Airship website, they are facilitating communications between “Democratic candidates and their constituency (sic) for mid-term elections.”
I suspect the targeting is not quite as narrow as that statement reflects. Either way, the news for Portland’s mobile scene is looking pretty good.
