LONDON, March 29, 2011 - Leading mobile applications development agency Grapple Mobile today
announces they have signed a development agreement with HP, to enable their
clients - brands, businesses and agencies - to develop apps for the HP
TouchPad quickly, easily and cost effectively.

Grapple will be one of the first developers to be building apps for the
TouchPad and the world's first agency to be incorporating it into their
cross-platform offering.

It is now vital for brands and businesses to respond to the increasing
demand from consumers for content rich, feature led apps which deliver the
best possible user experience. HP's TouchPad provides an ideal channel for
this kind of interaction - with its 9.7 inch capacitive multi-touch display,
flash capability, front-facing camera and HP webOS operating system.

Alistair Crane, CEO Grapple Mobile, commented:

"Our clients want the ability to create the best possible applications on
the most relevant platforms to reach their target audience, and to drive
their business objectives. As tablets of all kinds become more prevalent and
popular amongst the mainstream it is crucial for us to incorporate them into
our fully cross-platform offering."

Richard Kerris, vice-president Developer Relations from HP, said:

"We are committed to working with the best international app developers
and to ensuring that HP customers are getting access to a wide range of high
quality apps for the HP TouchPad. Grapple Mobile will play a significant role
in helping us to achieve this aim."

With offices in London, Toronto and New York Grapple's full service
agency approach enables the rapid development of native applications for all
the leading mobile devices including the iPad and iPad2. The HP TouchPad will
be fully integrated into this cross-platform offering by the time it is
launched to select markets this summer.
