Grand Apps 4.0 Software Update (Sneak Preview)

Important Updates 

Quarter 1 Software Upgrade
We have been working for over 6 months to complete our Quarter 1 2014 feature upgrade with Grand Apps 4.0 software releases. We really set the bar high this time on improving app layouts & functionality. We have completely rebuilt / redesigned our Native iOS / Android app(s). 

We're pumped to bring you Grand Apps 4.0! 

This new redesign will be taking advantage of the iOS 7 UI components. This friendly user layout will increase engagement and social integration opportunities. Expect this release sometime in March. 

Just below we have a full feature list you can reference with our BIGGEST product launch. 

Time of launch - 30 days (currently in final stages of testing) 

We will be going live with the new upgrades in 30 days. If you would like an app makeover & get all of these new features, contact
