WebMediaBrands’ Inside Network Launches New App Research Services

WebMediaBrands Inc.’s (Nasdaq: WEBM) Inside Network, the leader in tracking application performance and market trends across social and mobile platforms, today announced the launch of two new research services, the Social App Research Service (SOARS) and Mobile App Research Service (MARS). The new research services will deliver monthly reports that include Inside Network data and proprietary survey information.

The new services will tap the expertise of two of the best-known analysts in the mobile and gaming industries. Ross Rubin, who serves as Inside Network’s research director, will drive development of the MARS mobile app reports. Rubin has over 16 years of experience covering consumer technologies with a focus on wireless and digital ecosystems. He was previously executive director and principal analyst at The NPD Group and vice president and chief research fellow at Jupiter Research.

Billy Pidgeon, who has joined Inside Network as a senior analyst, will be principal author of the SOARS social app reports. Pidgeon was previously a partner at the video game research firm M2 Research, and has held analyst positions at IDC and Jupiter Research. He began working in the video games industry as a producer in 1988 and has been covering video games and digital media as a market research analyst since 1999. Rubin and Pidgeon will also share their industry perspective at Inside Network blogs and events.

“Apps have revolutionized how consumers interact on mobile and social platforms,” said Rubin. “Billy and I look forward to combining behavioral data from Inside Network’s trended sources with consumer perspectives to help clients develop unique insight into this unprecedented opportunity for consumer content, software and services.”
