Coalmarch Productions LLC is expanding into the iPhone applications market. It will develop custom applications for clients, including e-retailers.
Coalmarch designs and builds web sites and offers online and traditional marketing services. It is branching out into mobile-optimized applications because it believes demand will grow for iPhone applications. There already is considerable interest among consumers, as IPhone users downloaded more than 10 million applications from Apple’s App Store during the store’s first weekend of operation in July.
