When the owners of DrinkTown wanted to expand their services to include automated promotion of bar specials in the Chicago area, they contacted AIP. We created a custom Drupal Module for them called "Tweet Cron", which uses input from bar owners and customers to keep Chicago bar patrons informed of daily specials via automated Twitter messages, or "tweets".

Ten25Enterprises wants to make online dating fun again. That's why they came up with the concept for MyDealbreakers.com: a unique online dating site that cuts to the chase, letting you look for potential partners by specifying what you aren't looking for.

The underlying game engine was developed by As If Productions, using a combination of Drupal 6 modules and custom PHP scripts.
