“iGun Pro was a labor of love; something that began as a side project, quickly became a full-time gig, and eventually grew into the flourishing business now known as Crimson Moon,” said David Holtkamp, founder and CEO of Crimson Moon Entertainment. “The most gratifying part of building iGun Pro was that the community truly grew organically, and over the years developed into a passionate group of users that are actively involved in shaping the iGun Pro experience.”
iGun Pro 2 launched following extensive user testing leveraging the iGun Pro community of more than 1.5 million monthly active users. Between user surveys, forum engagement, and a soft launch period of more than three months, iGun Pro 2 evolved from direct input and insights from the iGun Pro community.
“iGun Pro 2 is truly the sequel the community wants and deserves,” Holtkamp said. “Each piece of functionality built into the new app improves upon features from the original iGun Pro while enhancing the overall experience. We look forward to continuing to work with the community to further the iGun Pro 2 experience.”
