BOSTON – Invaluable, a leading online live auction marketplace, has announced the official launch of the Invaluable app for iPhone, now available for download in the iTunes App Store.
Invaluable currently receives nearly 40 percent of all site traffic from mobile devices, with more than 66 percent of that coming from iOS devices including the Apple iPad and iPhone.
“We continue to see dramatic growth in the number of users visiting Invaluable using their mobile device, and we want to ensure that those users can find, bid on, and win the items they are most passionate about, no matter where they are,” said Rob Weisberg, Invaluable CEO. “The introduction of the Invaluable app for iPhone makes it even easier for our users to stay connected and bid on the go.”
Similar to the iPad app, the Invaluable app for iPhone runs on the iOS 8.0 or higher platform and features exclusive “swipe to bid” technology, providing users an easy, reliable way to bid during live auction sales.
In addition to real-time bidding, the Invaluable app for iPhone also allows users to browse hundreds of auctions and register for the auctions that interest them most. Users can use the app to create an account, leave absentee bids on auction lots in advance of a live auction, and manage their auction registrations, absentee bids and watched lots.
“As we see increased numbers of our auction buyers participating in auctions online, mobile technology is becoming more important to us,” said Mark Ford, CEO of James D. Julia. “We have been working with Invaluable for years to provide online bidding for our auction sales, and are excited that they are introducing a new app for the iPhone with live bidding capabilities. We have a loyal base of clients located around the world, and the new Invaluable iPhone app will make it even more convenient for them to participate in our auctions even when they are on the road.”
