[prMac.com] Montreal, Canada - WhereCloud, developer of mobile location-based products and solutions unveils today its iPhone development partnership with Tungle Corporation for the design and the development of Tungle's newest offering: the Tungle Accelerate iPhone application. Tungle launched the product yesterday at DEMOfall 09 in San Diego, California.
"We worked very hard with the Tungle team to produce an iPhone application that was visually attractive but also enabled the user to quickly and efficiently access the Tungle Accelerate platform" said WhereCloud President and Founder Martin Dufort.
"Our challenge was to keep the overall application layout simple while giving the user the power to access and create meeting invitations in an efficient manner. I think we did an excellent job of delivering on these requirements."
With the iPhone release, Tungle users can now take the core functions of Tungle with them wherever they go - from creating, sending and receiving meeting invitations, to cross-calendar sharing.
"We worked with the WhereCloud team under a very tight deadline to produce the Tungle iPhone application. It was very important for us that the initial release be AppStore ready for our DemoFall presentation. They delivered on that promise with a superb iPhone app." said Marc Gingras, chief executive officer and founder of Tungle Corporation. "They are a highly professional organization and I fully recommend them".
Tungle is also introducing two features exclusive to the iPhone: auto-suggest and at-a-glance network availability.
* Auto-suggest - "Shake to meet"
When scheduling a meeting, users can overlay schedules of sharing contacts, and then tap "suggest" or simply shake the device to have the app automatically identify the next five best meeting times for all selected contacts, thus taking advantage of the limited screen space available on the iPhone.
* At-a-glance availability
See when your network is free. Users can decide to send emails, SMS or place phone calls based on contacts' current availability. The app displays icons next to sharing contacts, telling users in one glance who is currently free or busy, according to their calendar availability.
Tungle, the maker of the first web-based calendar accelerator, gives your calendar the flexibility and accessibility it's lacking today. Working hand-in-hand with traditional e-calendars, it allows professionals to be connected, productive, mobile and in control through cross-platform and cross-company sharing and scheduling capabilities. Tungle currently integrates with Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple iCal and Entourage for Mac. Founded in 2006, the Montreal based company is venture-backed by investors Commonwealth Capital Ventures, JLA Ventures, and Desjardins Venture Capital.
* iPhone and iPod Touch OS 3.0 or later

Tungle for iPhone is available now free from the AppStore.
