SIOUX FALLS, SD -- Coin ConneXion reports that its new mobile route management software is now undergoing final beta testing. According to Coin ConneXion president and chief executive Dave Jensen, the new system is on track to offer operators a powerful tool for using their smartphones to handle routes of all sizes.

"This is our first smartphone app that has the same capabilities as our handheld program," Jensen said. "It has taken us almost three years to develop because it has so much functionality."

The first version of the new smartphone app will run on Apple iPhones; an Android version is in the works. The release of the initial iOS version will coincide with the eagerly awaited launch of Apple's iPhone 6. Apple has not announced that date, but rumors predict September or October.

While Jensen is nearly as tight-lipped regarding the new route management software as Apple is about its new phone, he did disclose that it will be available on a pay-as-you-go monthly lease basis.

"The demands of this industry have really become complex and diverse," he said. "And while our handheld products offer functionality, our new apps will be unlike anything else on the market. This is because of the depth and sophistication of the system."

The Sioux Falls, SD, firm, a leading provider of route management software, unveiled its first coin industry software in 1986, the year in which Apple introduced the Macintosh Plus with its then-enormous 1MB RAM. In the same year, Taito debuted the first model in the popular Arkanoid series. Since then, Coin ConneXion has kept pace with the changing technological and amusement business landscapes, and the new smartphone program is the latest example.
