CHICAGO, Nov. 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- When ACT! software co-founder Mike Muhney set out to make a cutting edge application to streamline relationship management for mobile devices, he didn't expect to make such a big impact so quickly. In the most recent edition of the celebrated iBusiness Magazine, Muhney's VIPorbit takes the crown as the #1 Business App on the impressive list of the World's Top 50 going into 2013. With brands like DropBox, Skype, Evernote, and LinkedIn grazing the list, VIPorbit is in good company.
The veteran software designer and industry visionary launched VIPorbit in 2011 with one goal: make managing contacts, calendars, and communication easier for those with iPhones and iPads. VIPorbit has created a new app category similar to the way ACT! created the Contact Management software category in the 80's. Muhney has coined the phrase "Mobile Relationship Management," and is now carving out a market much like he did two decades ago.
"We are honored to receive such high marks for what we have considered an absolute need in the app industry, a relationship management solution that manages appointments and communication, all in one app. VIPorbit is on track to become the crowning achievement in my career as a developer and we've only just scratched the surface in light of what we plan to release in 2013," commented tech industry legend and VIPorbit founder Mike Muhney.
VIPorbit helps you manage everything you know about everyone you know, along with every call, meeting, or to-do you have with them. All in one app. All on your iPhone and iPad. VIPorbit is the only full-featured mobile relationship manager designed for managing business relationships on the iPhone and iPad. The iOS-based app provides business professionals with an affordable, easy-to-use anytime, anywhere solution that allows them to deal with more people more effectively, elevating the value of their relationships.
"We get calls and emails every day from fans and VIPorbit users. We are excited about the way people are using the platform, including those outside of traditional business use. From parents using the application to organize the carpool list, upcoming sports games, and communication with teachers, all the way to political campaigns using it as an effective grassroots and media communication tool," continued Muhney.
iBusiness Magazine's "Top 50 Business Apps" is a list many developers hope to land on. This comes on the heels of a series of impressive reviews and features for VIPorbit from the likes of Macworld, appolicious, PCWorld, and USA Today to name a few. iBusiness Magazine is the only Apple business to business (B2B) magazine in the market. Currently, most Apple-based magazines and publications focus on retail and consumer products; iBusiness is also the only magazine in the market that focuses on Apple business & enterprise solutions for the business end users who are using Apple technology, or those looking to switch.

"We are excited to announce the Top 50 Business Apps Edition of i.Business Magazine, and to name VIPorbit as the number one app on the list. It gives professionals everything they need to stay on top business relationships, a mission-critical business activity. It manages contacts, schedules, tasks, Email, social feeds, and more—all in one easy-to-use app, available for both iPhone and iPad—two platforms widely used by businesspeople," said Carmine De Santo, founder and publisher of i.Business Magazine.
"We look forward to what's in store for 2013 and are very thankful to be named the Top Business App for iPhone and iPad users. As our platform and reach grows, our goals stay the same. We want to bring ease of communication and relationship management right into the hands of our users. We are on a mission and we ask all of our users to help us get there," concluded Muhney.
VIPorbit features a free version of both the iPhone and iPad apps available in the iTunes store that allows users to try out the full list of features but limits users to 100 contacts.
