Gadget company GadgetHelpline.com has announced the ‘world’s first comprehensive range’ of gadget technical support apps.
GadgetHelpline.com apps are aimed at helping consumers solve a range of problems, from getting set top boxes up and running, to downloading music onto a new mobile.
The Gadget Help apps are now available for everything from using the iPod Touch to how to operate and connect the Sky HD box.
GadgetHelpline.com is part of the TMTI (Talk Me Thorough It) group of companies. Turnover this year will be £6 million with pre-tax profits of £1.4 million, the company said.
The apps can be downloaded straight onto a mobile for 59p per gadget.
The company’s CEO, Crispin Thomas, said: ‘We believe that our new technology will spell the end of the traditional gadget instruction manual by the end of this decade, and no more bulky booklets obviously also has real environmental benefits too
’Initial sales have been extremely impressive. They show that consumers will pay for customer service- and we shall also be shortly launching apps on the Android Markets store. The best thing is that the apps can be created for absolutely any gadget where there is a consumer demand and if companies want to teach people how to use their gadget products, we’re the first company in the world who have got an app for that. If a manufacturer or brand wants us to make an app for them we can accommodate them too.’
Gadget Helpline apps can be found in the app store by searching for the term ‘technical support'.
