[prMac.com] Boulder, Colorado - Push IO today is pleased to announce the acquisition of TapLynx, the powerful yet simple platform that creates iPhone and iPad apps for content publishers. TapLynx will be re-released by Push IO this month with a series of new features.

"We've found a great home for TapLynx and we're excited to see where Push IO takes it," said Brent Simmons, the creator of TapLynx. "Push IO has been a TapLynx partner for years. Coupling TapLynx with their mobile services platform is not only a natural fit, it's a great benefit to TapLynx publishers," he added.

Push IO has developed a fleet of mobile services that include push notifications, data aggregation, and instant content delivery. The company's platform powers major applications for sports leagues, broadcasters, and global corporations. The acquisition of TapLynx extends this industrial-strength platform to a broader audience including agencies, publishers, and small and medium businesses.

"We're excited to add TapLynx to our mobile services platform," said Joe Pezzillo, Co-Founder of Push IO. "Expanding our platform to a wider base of customers is the logical next step toward our ultimate goal where everyone has their own app, just like everyone has a website today."

"We're showing our dedication to the TapLynx platform by adding both iAd support and in-app purchasing this month," said Dan Burcaw, Co-Founder of Push IO. "We will also take TapLynx for iPad out of beta and release a revamped 1.0 version this summer."

Push IO will host a party to celebrate the TapLynx acquisition at this month's Apple Worldwide Developers Conference.

Based in Boulder, Colorado, Push IO is the industrial strength mobile services provider established in 2009. The company's platform powers the most demanding applications for sports leagues, news broadcasters, and enterprises. The company has shipped more than two billion notifications to millions of users.
