ChatTime Receives Red Herring Global 100 and Mobile Star Awards

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2011) - Last week, ChatTime, the leading iPhone app for high quality, low-cost and free international calls, was recognized by Red Herring as a Global 100 winner, and by Mobile Village as a "Shining Star" consumer app for voice calling.

The acknowledgement from the Red Herring and Mobile Village editors confirms ChatTime as a true market leader and recognizes that making an international call with ChatTime is now convenient and affordable, providing the same level of voice quality as a local call. ChatTime users make low cost and free international calls exactly the same way they would make a local call, but at a fraction of the cost and without the inconvenience of Wi-Fi or 3G and inconsistent call quality.

Red Herring's Global 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list an invaluable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the greatest business opportunities from around the world.

The Mobile Village Mobile Star Award sets today's new mobile products and companies against established competitors. Winners were chosen by votes from thousands of real users of the products. Both nominees and winners are respected in the mobile industry as the new "stars" to watch. ChatTime was awarded the "Shining Star" title in the Consumer Application: Voice Calling category tying with Google Voice.

"Earlier this month we announced our newest upgrade, offering free calls to users in 53 countries; the response from our long-time customers and new users has been astounding -- it was a great launch," said Dan Currie, CEO of ChatTime. "And, while their loyalty is always the greatest validation of our success, the two awards have allowed us great opportunities to show off our technology. We are very grateful for the honors and will continue to develop ChatTime to become a consolidated international voice and messaging solution across multiple platforms."
