Getfugu Launches Preview of Logo Drive at CTIA Show, Presaging Strong Consumer Acceptance and Potential Revenue

20% of Brands Registered on First Day

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - March 24, 2010) - CTIA Wireless 2010 -- Getfugu, Inc. (OTCBB: GFGU), the next generation mobile search tool, today announced it has successfully launched its revolutionary logo drive campaign at the ongoing CTIA convention in Las Vegas, with 20% of all available brands being registered on the first day.

Carl Freer, president of Getfugu, Inc., said, "The enthusiasm and drive demonstrated at the Getfugu booth demonstrates that our logo drive campaign has the potential to strongly attract consumers worldwide, the result of which could mean substantial revenue for the Company. There are 4 billion users worldwide, and we expect to have a significant impact almost immediately. Visitors to the Getfugu booth stood in line eagerly to register and begin to capture logos in order to gain a chance to win first prize in the Getfugu logo drive. Shortly after the doors opened on the first day of the convention, the Getfugu database quickly became inundated with logo registrations.

"The response from consumers and clients is far above our expectations and at this rate, it is possible that we will register every logo before the end of the show on Thursday. We think this will be the most effective consumer launch in history." 

The Getfugu Logo Drive campaign is being offered at the CTIA International Convention Center thru March 25. Attendees can register to participate at Getfugu's booth, #6946 in the North Hall, where 10 lucky participants have the chance to win luxury prizes, including a Smart Car, a Can-Am Spider motorcycle, iPads and iPhones. The prizes will be awarded to the participants who capture the most logos and registrations using the Getfugu application.

Getfugu provides a compelling business opportunity for advertisers, drawing consumers closer to a branded experience. With Getfugu's ARL and VRL technology, customers can find a business location simply by taking a picture of a logo or speaking its name into their phone. Using their mobile phone's GPS capabilities, Getfugu can then provide detailed contact information and point the way on either a map or reality view. The application also identifies other Getfugu-enabled businesses in the immediate area, providing for a more dynamic experience for every cell phone user.

The free Getfugu application is available at http://www.getfugu.com.
