LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - March 22, 2010) -  CTIA Wireless 2010 -- Getfugu, Inc. (OTCBB: GFGU), the next generation mobile search tool, today announced it will reveal its latest application with the Getfugu Logo Drive campaign -- offering 10 lucky participants 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.

Mobile phones are the search tool of choice and will soon rival the Internet as a way to find local businesses and purchase products. Getfugu's 'See it,' 'Say it' and 'Get It' application -- which leverages Augmented Reality Links (ARL) and Voice Recognition Links (VRL) -- instantly connects consumers to the Web by simply taking a picture of a logo, or speaking what they want. The application then provides the consumer with a number of choices, including visiting a company's Web site, local sales promotions, or even directions to the closest retailer.

"Innovations are driving the mobile decade," said Michael Solomon, Chairman, Getfugu. "The global market for wireless is above 1 trillion dollars. We know we have the very latest mobile technology to deliver to advertisers the most return for their ad budgets, in the best consumer-friendly way."

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 phones' GPS capabilities, Getfugu can then provide detailed contact information and points the way on either a map or reality view. The application also points out 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.
