About Nomad Mobile Guides, Inc.

Melissa Beaver and Ann Froschauer demonstrating Nomad at APPL 2010Nomad Mobile Guides is a team of people who love travel and obsess about creating the best experiences for mobile users.

Our core product is a modular software framework for developing cross-platform mobile apps and mobile websites. We initially focused on the needs of travel publishers and marketers, creating a pre-built travel app framework that enables them to rapidly deploy mobile apps without programming. We now offer full custom development of any sort of mobile application or website, using the modular Nomad platform as a foundation.

The Nomad framework powers a growing series of apps for several US national parks, destination marketing organizations, tour operators and travel publishers.
