Getfugu Adds Barcode Recognition to Mobile Search Application

HyTech Professionals Provide "Scan It" to "See It," "Say It," "Get It" for Revolutionary New Shopping Concept

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2010) -  Getfugu (OTCBB: GFGU), the next generation mobile search tool, today announced it has signed a strategic agreement with HyTech Professionals to develop mobile barcode applications to augment Getfugu's "See it," "Say it," and "Get it" with "Scan it."

A barcode scanning facility embedded into the application will enable shoppers to visit local stores, for instance, supermarkets, and simply scan the barcode to get the product information. Pricing, nutrition detail, coupon redemption, and discounts, when available, will immediately become apparent on the mobile interface. The new application will heighten shopper awareness of product locations through to automatic checkout using the barcode on the mobile telephone.

Getfugu's Chairman, Michael Jay Solomon, observed, "This is another illustration of how versatile the Getfugu application has become. We look forward to working with HyTech Professionals in order to create a ground-breaking concept."
