The Stones of North America app is available for free download at the iTunes Store. The app has been produced by MIA with generous support from MAPEI, the world leader in the production of adhesives and other products for the installation of stone and other floor and wall coverings.
The app features marble, granite, and other stones from more than 70 quarries in North America. MIA’s goal in creating the app was to give architects, builders, designers, homeowners, and others shopping for natural stone an easy way to view and select stone on the popular iPad. The app is being promoted to architects and design professionals through a robust advertising campaign.
The Stones of North America app displays stones in vivid color and offers an array of dynamic capabilities and valuable content for stone selection and use:
- Users can explore natural stones by type, color, intended use, location, and distance from a project.
- Featured stones are showcased through stunning photos of their use in commercial and/or residential applications.
- Technical specifications, physical properties, and details on recommended use make it easy to specify the right stone for any project.
- Sophisticated mapping technology enables users to measure the distance from the stone’s quarry and processing centers to a job site for sustainable projects.
