Digitaria Builds Multiplatform Mobile App Using Revolutionary Single Design Workflow

Pre-release access to new Adobe AIR 3.0 technology fuels USA Network’s Psych Vision 2 Application across iOS and Android for Smartphones and Tablets
Nov 7, 2011

With pre-release access to the new Adobe AIR 3.0 runtime, digital marketing and technology company Digitaria is among the first interactive agencies to showcase the revolutionary platform technology, which allows a single universal build to run on multiple screens and mobile devices, including iOS and Android.

Digitaria used the AIR 3.0 technology to create the Psych Vision 2 application, an expanded sequel to last year’s popular interactive app for the hit USA Network comic mystery series PSYCH.

“Last season’s app was only available to iOS users and still required two builds,” said Michael Brown, vice president of media and entertainment for Digitaria. “A tool like AIR 3.0 is opening up new opportunities for marketers to reach a growing mobile audience across different devices and platforms with one investment in a universal application.”

Returning to his hometown of Minneapolis, Dan Khabie makes a breakfast presentation Thursday morning at AdFed MN, discussing his 14-year journey as founder and CEO of San Diego-based digital marketing and technology company Digitaria.

Khabie will highlight his Minnesota roots and how it influenced his personality and management style, as he chronicles Digitaria’s transformation from a boutique local creative agency to a digital marketing and technology company with global reach, acquired last year by the WPP network and aligned with the world’s best known advertising agency, JWT. The presentation “Agency Culture and the Evolution of a Digital Agency” is from 7:45 to 9:30 a.m. at International Market Square in Minneapolis.
