California Blooms (www.californiablooms.com), the premier internet retailer of fresh, boutique-grown roses from the central coast of California, has launched a new iPhone app – just in time for Valentine’s Day! The CalBlooms App, currently available on the iTunes App Store for iPhone, iTouch and soon for the all new Apple iPad, allows customers to order the highest-quality, eco-friendly roses anytime and anywhere. http://www.itunes.com/app/californiablooms.
The launch of this new app distinguishes California Blooms as the first of 35,000+ businesses on the Yahoo! Merchant Solutions platform to develop and release an app for the iPhone. The app features include:
• Quick and easy ordering – most orders can be completed in 3 minutes or less
• The ability to save previous orders, as well as ship to and bill to addresses
• Order from anywhere at anytime over 3G or Wi-Fi
“Now there’s an app for Valentine’s Day heroics, as well as everyday special occasions,” commented Mark Skorlich, CEO of California Blooms. “With our new app, we are spreading the love – one iPhone user at a time. The CalBlooms App provides customers with mobile access to the perfect gift for the most important people and events in their life.”
The California Blooms app was created by Pervasent, a leading provider of iPhone solutions, who also created the wildly popular online ordering app for Chipotle Restaurants. “It was a pleasure working with Mark to create the CalBlooms iPhone app. We were particularly excited to work with Yahoo! and CalBlooms to build the first iPhone app that ties into Yahoo’s Merchant Solutions platform,” said Stuart Williams, CEO of Pervasent.
