NewFoundry-An innovation Studio that fuses application design and engineering user experience with brand development expertise to create next-generation market opportunities, products and services to assist firms, whether they are a global automotive supplier, a healthcare startup, or an established professional services firm. In today's focus app, NewFoundry discusses work performed for Roush Performance for the designing and engineering of a mobile app for its new Active Exhaust product. This project leveraged the firm's expertise in design, UX/UI and embedded software engineering to provide a unique, wireless interface between drivers and Roush's exhaust tuning product. 

LocalHop-It all started with three friends who needed a better way to find local events. Tired of bouncing between websites and social media pages, they decided to do something about it. Over the past year they've been working hard to make sure the residents of their hometowns never miss an event they care about. An events app that helps you find out about things happening in communities you care about. You can use the app to search through hundreds of events entered by organizations such as public libraries, farmers markets, shopping districts, hotels, and city governments. When you find events you're interested in, you can add them to your favorites, add them to your calendar, and share them with friends and family. You can also follow organizations to see what other upcoming events they are hosting. LocalHop is currently available in Southeast Michigan.

Join Melissa Birnie when she speaks to New Foundry's Rich Chang, Partner, and Chief Executive Officer on Oct 16th at 1:00 P.M and Robert Bales Co-Founder of LocalHop at 1:15 P.M. on their latest Apps and their journey of creation.
