The Conversation Platform Gives Fans the Ultimate Experience With Face-to-Face Video Chats With Their Favorite Athletes, Musicians and Celebrities
SCOTTSDALE, AZ–(Marketwired – Nov 17, 2015) – talk2Legends today announced the launch of their mobile platform that gives anyone the opportunity to talk with the athletes and stars they’ve been following for years. talk2Legends kicked off development as a participant in Tallwave’s High Tide program. After a successful beta launch, the app is now available for download in the Apple App Store.
“Being out of beta and available to the masses is beyond exciting,” said Ryan Hermansky, CEO of talk2Legends. “Who doesn’t want to talk to their favorite sports hero? The development was a long road, but we found the right partner in Tallwave and now we’ve got a great product that offers an unforgettable experience to fans. We also have a great list of participating pro athletes and the list is growing everyday.”
The app was created with simplicity in mind. After the app is downloaded, users can browse professional athletes by scrolling through pictures or filtering by sport. Once a legend is selected, it’s as simple as checking availability, purchasing credits and scheduling a 5-minute video chat call. Calls are executed from the smart phone with FaceTime over Wifi. Users will then have the option to share their experience directly to their social media accounts.
At the start of development, talk2Legends enlisted Tallwave, an Arizona-based innovation services company that helps startups and growth-stage technology companies build products and take them to market. In today’s crowded marketplace it is important to get every step from idea to launch perfect and Tallwave was integrated as part of the team for the entire process.
“We always believed in the talk2Legends concept and team, and were delighted to help guide them in their quest to build an app users loved and help drive adoption,” said Ed Borromeo, COO of Tallwave. “A successful app takes more than a good idea. Ryan and his team went through the right processes of prototyping, messaging, user-validation and much more to get to a successful launch. We are excited to watch their growth.”
With an initial focus on sports, talk2Legends has more than 150 total professional athletes including Mixed Martial Artist (MMA) Tito Ortiz, NFL football running back Hall-of-Famer Tony Dorsett, legendary Hawaiian surfer Larry Bertlemann, professional skateboarder Christian Hosoi, and baseball slugger Bret Boone.
