Boulder Valley firms on mobile-app wagon


By Ryan Dionne (

Rage Digital was put on many iPhone users’ map because of its Cowbell2010 Olympic app. But the company specializes in making apps for other companies and organizations such as the Fox Theatre, 3OH!3, and 24 Hour Fitness.

The Boulder-based company’s 24 Hour Fitness app, which has been downloaded about 150,000 times, is designed to keep the fitness center’s customers dialed in to what’s going on at their gym.

Designed and branded for the center, Rage built the app to include an auto-locate feature so users can find a nearby 24 Hour Fitness center, a body mass index calculator, calorie counter, daily class schedule and more.

Starting at about $5,000, Rage creates apps for nearly anyone with advanced features that can run the cost up to $150,000. How much, if at all, the clients charge per download is up to them, said Andrew Kimmell, the company’s art director.
