Cross-media marketing software and technology firm One Public (onepublic.com) has announced that it had acquired Telephony Media, a mobile and connected devices design and development studio. Telephony Media designs iOS applications and connected devices like the iGrill. With the acquisition of Telephony Media, the company is hoping to create "cost-effective and scalable" solutions that extend to Windows 8.1.
"The introduction of unified Windows 8.1 application platform by Microsoft has opened new opportunities," One Public CEO Fahad Khan stated. "Smart marketers are already investing heavily on Windows 8.1 apps. We have extensive experience on iOS platform and are looking to build a leadership position on Windows 8.1 platform."
The development studio will continue to operate as Telephony Media under the One Public umbrella according to the company in a press release. The company promises that existing iOS applications will be updated following Apple's introduction of iOS 8 to developers this week and that it will optimize existing iOS apps for clients signing up to build Windows 8.1 apps.
