IGN needed rapid time to market with IGN Mobile yet offer unmatched interactive mobile media experiences to their gaming fans. IGN Entertainment, a unit of Fox Interactive Media, Inc., is a leading Internet media and services provider focused on the videogame and entertainment enthusiast markets. IGN’s sites attract more than 31 million unique monthly visitors and have one of the largest concentrated Internet audiences of young males - a coveted core customer demographic and a natural fit for mobile. The mobile marketplace is fragmented with dozens of network operators, a diversity of mobile device standards and numerous distribution channels with differing revenue models. IGN needed a partner to take it mobile without diluting its brand.

The on-device portal offers interactive rich mobile media experiences to the widest mobile audience, giving gamers instant access to news, previews, cheats, reviews, and additional information about their favorite games, anytime, anywhere, directly from their mobiles. Nellymoser enabled IGN/FOX to initiate valuable, long-term relationships with each fan yet build communities. IGN mobile features a cutting edge user interface and interactive user experience. Users can browse, preview and purchase ringtones and wallpapers; read and search specific news stories, game reviews and game summaries.
