Charter Launches Mobile Apps
Charter Communications today announced the launch of a mobile application - a free downloadable app for the iPhone™, iPod touch™, or BlackBerry® smartphones - that provides customers access to the most up-to-date information about Charter services. Charter also recently launched its newly redesigned charter.net, with new customization tools, easy access to charter.net email and Facebook©, real-time TV listings and trailers of movies available on Charter On Demand.
"Charter's mobile app brings convenience to our customer's lives. It brings together product and On Demand Movie information, TV listings, customer support videos and content and service locations into a single location. Mobile devices are something that people always have within their reach. With this app, we are making it easy for our customers to have information about Charter services at their fingertips," said Jim Gallagher, Director of Online Marketing for Charter.
Charter expects that its mobile application will continue to grow in functionality to include more content streaming and the ability to order services. Both applications are available for download, for free, via their respective app download sites through the iTunes Store or BlackBerry App World.
