With your own custom postcard app, your visitors become ambassadors and advocates of your destination, event or organization!  


How does a visitor get the app?

Visitors will be able to download your app from the iTunes App Store for FREE. You will be able to include a web link in your online, email and printed materials, which visitors may use to directly access your app in the App Store. Purple Forge will also provide you with a barcode, which you can include in your printed materials which visitors may scan to download your app.

What is involved?

Purple Forge handles all the technology and deployment to the App Store. All you need to do it to provide us with the graphic assets that brand the application and postcard capabilities. We will provide you with a detailed specification on the graphic assets. We will then configure the application with your graphic assets and deploy to the App Store.

How long does it take?

Purple Forge can configure and deploy your custom destination and event postcard app to the iTunes App Store in 5 days or less once we have received your graphics. Apple approvals typically take 5 to 10 days before your app will be available for download by your users.
