Being available on the Android platform means marketing and advertising pros on other mobile networks – Verizon, Sprint and T‑Mobile – have access to the industry news, projections and insights that more than 15,000 iPhone users already use,” said C. Lee Smith, president/​CEO of Ad-​ology Research. “The number of Android devices is growing quickly, and we’re excited to be the first marketing news and consumer insights app on that platform,” Smith said.

Marketing Forecast keeps strategic advertisers and marketers up-​to-​speed on the industry and provides a continuous stream of marketing and consumer insights from Ad-​ology Research and other top research firms. Marketing Forecast originally launched in September 2009 and quickly became a top resource for the advertising and marketing industry.

The new version includes a small business section – with forecasts, news and marketing trends of interest to entrepreneurs — and an improved user interface overall. New sharing functions make it possible to share content via e‑mail, texting, Twitter or Facebook.

The free Marketing Forecast app is available for Motorola’s Droid and other smartphones running the Google Android system and can be found in the Finance section of the Android Market. The iPhone, iPod touch and iPad version is available in the Business section of Apple’s App Store.
