FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MEDL Mobile, Inc. (OTCQB:MEDL), a pioneer in the creation, development, marketing and monetization of mobile apps, today announced it is adding DoubleBeam's mobile payments software development kit (SDK) to its award-winning mobile app development platform providing developers and users with mobile commerce capabilities.
DoubleBeam's digital image capture and mobile based eChecking payments tool will allow MEDL to embed mobile payment capabilities into their current library of mobile applications as well as future applications developed on the MEDL platform. MEDL's extensive network of apps, partner apps and client apps will soon have the ability to accept and process mobile payments within the existing mobile application.
