Compatible with leading brands like Samsung, LG, Sony Ericson, HTC, Motorola, DELL and Acer, etc, this new application from Dinamalar.com has been created by the highly experienced team from Softcraft Systems, an emerging mobile software solutions company that specialises in application development for new generation smartphones.

Adimoolam, Chief Marketing Officer Dinamalar.com stated, “The pile of innovations from our publication has reached a feverish pitch this year. With Dinamalar.com unveiling its Android phone app we hope we’ll be able to bridge a larger part of the information gap. Our primary motive has always remained making news accessible to all and with readers today choosing a vast spectrum of modes to access the web, we felt compelled to be present in as many of those spaces as possible. Moreover, as soon as Dinamalar had launched the iPhone & iPod and iPad app, we were flooded with requests for an Android-specific app, which was hard to ignore. And we hope that this launch will give our readers who access the web through Android-powered smartphones the chance to stay informed of the news as and when it happens.”

In the past few months Dinamalar.com has strategically extended its accessibility across a wider range of audience segments.

Incidentally Dinamalar’s Android mobile app has already recorded more than 15,000 downloads with Indian users forming the majority at 65%, followed by Singapore, US, UK and Middle-East. With India amongst the largest mobile phones users in the world and the Tamil audience have a big share in it, the app, which hit the market on 6th Sept, 2011 is anticipated to record a large number of downloads within the coming weeks.

And now with more launches in the pipeline, this year would mark the unveiling of a wide gamut of reader-centric innovations from the publication website, thus catapulting its position in the online space.
