    Des Moines, IA_The Motor News Media Corporation has brought visual excitement to iPhones, iPods and iPads with the debut of its 1st smartphone application.

    As the first in a series of new mobile applications, the company’s free “MotorNewsMedia” app is designed to surprise and delight automotive fans with the availability of approximately 1,800 color images of concept, custom and prototype vehicles from the world’s leading automotive manufacturers.

    Designed to serve as device wallpaper or to exist in a photo gallery, there is something for everybody. “This new app represents a comprehensive selection of automotive expressions from the world’s most progressive vehicle companies,” says Kenneth Chester, Jr. – President & CEO. “This first app is merely the tip of the iceberg of the content that we are planning to make available directly to the motoring public.”

    Users pay a low $0.99 USD per image that they choose to download. The app will email two copies of the image - one optimized for iPhone wallpaper and one optimized to be saved in a photo gallery on the user's computer.

    Plans call for the company to initially roll out this app on Apple’s iOS4 smartphone platform. The app is scheduled to also be released to Android (Google), Symbian (Nokia) and Blackberry smartphone/tablet platforms in the next year.

    The company reports that it also has two exciting all-new automotive-related image applications in its near-term development pipeline.

    About the company: Founded in 1989, Motor News Media is based in Urbandale, Iowa and is a leader in providing automotive content to newspapers throughout the United States. Additionally, its Vintage Automotive Media & Materials subsidiary is a leading on-line store of automotive print materials including factory brochures, press kits, magazines, shop manuals and owners guides.
