Devs looking for new and exciting ways to promote their apps could take a cue from Nerd Communications‘ Ben the Bodyguard’s website. It is a scrolling narrative that entertainingly depicts the objectives of a security app due for release in January 2011.
The app offers protection of passwords, calendar entries, notes, contacts, photos, videos, or select sensitive documents you may have on your iPhone. The practical aspects of the app are demonstrated in a trailer that draws inspiration from film noir, graphic novels and French action films. It will be nearly impossible for the app to live up to the hype, and the company admits it doesn’t add much to security apps already available, except an awesome promotional website.
Nerd Communications’ website is also a site to behold, and they’re hiring.
