Stephanie has been following trends in mobile learning, marketing, and content for several years and now brings her ideas to YiibuÃ¢â‚¬â€a mobile company focused on lifestyle and learning content.

About Yiibu: During idle moments on the subway, in-between meetings, or running to soccer practiceÃ¢â‚¬â€mobile devices are increasingly becoming an integral part of our lives. They’re also one of the most ubiquitous forms of personal expression and often say as much about you as your profession, the car you drive, or what you choose to do in times of leisure. Yiibu creates small lifestyle and learning applications for those ‘in-between-moments’ you spend with your mobile devices. No shoot-em-up games, stock trackers or productivity applicationsÃ¢â‚¬â€just good old fashioned long-tail content for young and old.
