App Innovators - Creators of 'Bones Lab Panic' for Fox

We're the leading creators of the 'Talent Integrated App' - which leverages existing talent in new ways to engage loyal viewers/communities, and offer exciting new marketing opportunities. We built a unique integrated game 'Lab Panic' for the Fox series 'Bones' and we can do the same for you. We also build traditional apps - like the globally popular 'Prawn Star'.
