I am delighted to announce that IBN member and longtime sponsor of my work Anne-Marie Faiola, CEO of Bramble Berry, Inc., has launched the first iPhone application focused on the independent bath and body care products industry. I think it may even be the first iPhone app in the cosmetics industry, period. I am excited to be one of the first to download it! The new Bramble Berry iPhone app is the first and only of its kind, allowing soapmakers to create, store and share their recipes for soap made by hand from scratch.
Bramble Berry's soapmakers iPhone app is the perfect complement to Anne-Marie's business, which sells soapmaking supplies for hobbyists and serious business owners.
On September 28, Apple reported that, in approximately the last year, over 85,000 apps have been downloaded more than two billion times. This is an amazing statistic and I am delighted to know that Anne-Marie is a part of it. You can read details about how the new Bramble Berry iPhone app works, and link to Apple's download link from Anne-Marie's blog.
