At just the click of an app on one’s phone, one is privileged to watch movies thanks to MobileFliks, a new movie app that allows users of smart phones to watch movies and series in 10 minutes.
The first of its kind in Africa, this new innovation which was launched in Accra last Wednesday is the brain child of Eagle Productions.
Mobilefliks aims at providing a convenient, cost effective and quality source of entertainment for mobile phone users.
It has also been designed in such a way that mobile phone users could watch movies, anywhere and anytime on their mobile phones.
Speaking at the launch which attracted personalities from the entertainment fraternity and the telecommunication industry, the CEO of Eagle Productions, Juliet Asante said the introduction of the Mobilefliks is to create a seamless synergy between films and the mobile phones.
She said mobile phones have helped to develop the world technologically like no other technology has done in recent years but much has not been done in our part of the world to utilise its potential to the fullest.
“The introduction of the ‘smart’ phones which allows users to surf the Internet, download music and other data services, provided additional impetus for the industry to grow further.
“Because of the mobile phone’s usefulness, individuals, businesses and especially NGOs are using it to roll-out products they have designed in various ways and as an entertainment company, we thought of how to make it relevant to the entertainment industry and that was how we arrived at MobileFliks” she stated.
She explained that MobileFliks is designed purposely for the mobile phones. “It brings movies to your phone, anytime, anywhere. There should never be a dull moment for mobile phone users. However, it is not to compete with the movie industry,” she added.
Ms Asante told Graphic Showbiz that her outfit is committed to put in the hands of every person that own a smart phone in Africa the opportunity to watch films “made by Africans and for Africans”.
“Mobilefliks will provide the right entertainment stuff to its users. We are partnering with the mobile networks such as MTN, Airtel, Tigo, and still talking to other telecommunication companies to get on board.
“To access Mobilefliks, smart phone users can visit www.mobilefliks.com to download the app and watch the first movie” she added.
