Efftec International, Inc. Receives iTunes(R) Approval for PotSnob Mobile App Version 1.1 for iOS(R)

TULSA, OK -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Efftec International, Inc. (OTC: EFFI), a holding company focused on direct acquisition and development in growth industries, today announces that the Company has received full approval of the redesigned PotSnob app from Apple's iTunes®. The new, entirely redesigned app has been pushed out and is live for new users as of this release.

Interested parties are encouraged to download the PotSnob app to their Apple® device or to view the app in Apple's iTunes Store using the following link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/potsnob/id616048305?mt=8

This update overhauled many aesthetic and core-functional features of the app, including the addition of search & filter by cannabis strain type (Sativa, Indica or Hybrid). The PotSnob app now also includes HD-quality images of each strain, along with details and information associated. As noted previously, this update is the first of many, as the Company builds upon the existing app and database infrastructure.

Aside from the technical design elements added and modified in V1.1, the Company has also moved the app from paid (previously $0.99) to free. This marks the first, and very necessary, step in implementing a monetization strategy for PotSnob. We will continue to discuss our broad strategy in more detail in the near future; but, in short, we have taken this action with one desired result in mind -- acquiring more users to the PotSnob app. We feel strongly that a large user base will be a strong contributor to the app's overall success.

Efftec International, Inc. (OTC: EFFI) is a holding company whose focus is the acquisition and development of proprietary technologies. The Company is actively expanding its footprint in the technology marketplace through acquisitions of valuable IP and existing companies with proven business models.

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
