The Airship Effect

The Airship Effect is being ready with a supporting product/service on the day a major company announces a major project/service. When iPhone 3.0 provided Push Notifications, Urban Airship was ready with a product for developers to more easily support push notifications in their app. Its selling pick-axes to gold rush miners and mobile app development is definitely a gold rush.

Two upcoming products that have caught my attention:

  • iPhone 4.0, Game Center, summer 2010
    • Friend network
    • MatchMaking
    • LeaderBoard
    • Achievements
  • Facebook Location Support, f8 developers conference April 2010

What sort of supporting services could be made for these?
