Provo, UTAH    Jun 24, 2009 in Navigation

 

Avantar has reached several major milestones, including surpassing the 2 Million new downloads mark and now serving nearly 5 Million monthly local mobile search results. This was accomplished in a relatively short period of time, 11 months, thanks to Apple's extraordinary strides in the development of their new economic powerhouse supporting third-party applications downloaded through the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch users.

This type of ready-to-buy user base provides a great opportunity for locally focused agencies and advertisers to take advantage of."
