Today one of our clients, ThinkFlood, launched their RedEye Universal Remote Control for the iPhone and iPod touch. The device and application combination allows you to "use your iPhone or iPod touch to control your TV, stereo, cable box, DVD player, and many other devices that receive standard (infrared) signals." The product launch got some great press coverage including from CrunchGear, Gizmodo, Macworld, iPodNN, Engadget, TUAW, and Wired’s Gadget Lab. Our work with ThinkFlood has included developing their brand identity, packaging, and website.
The latest iteration of the website includes eCommerce functionality allowing ThinkFlood to sell their RedEye device directly to consumers. The eCommerce section includes a shopping cart and an easy-to-use two page checkout process. While the checkout process is simple for end users, there's quite a lot happening behind the scenes with the integration of multiple APIs. The website is built using Zend Framework and thanks to Rackspace Cloud Sites everything has remained running smoothly even with all of the press coverage and associated traffic.
