i-Mobilize Launches the "appTune"

New iPhone Application Combines High Quality Music, Video and Social Interactivity to Create the Ultimate Digital Music Experience

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - December 3, 2009) - Metatron Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MRNJ) today announced that its i-Mobilize subsidiary has created and released the first high quality, fully interactive music and video application for the iPhone called the "appTune."

According to Forrester Research, the market for digital music downloads is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 23% over the next five years, reaching $4.8 billion in 2012. In response to this exploding market, i-Mobilize has made a bold move to claim the top spot on the bleeding edge of music technology with the creation of its new appTune.

Combining the highest definition audio available for download with video images synced to music and interactivity with Twitter, Facebook and MySpace, the appTune is poised to become the hottest new music product of Christmas 2009.

Digital music users often complain about the unavailability of high-quality mp3's on iTunes and other digital music portals. appTunes boast a format of 320kbps at 44.1 kHz which is more than double the quality of typical music downloads.

i-Mobilize has several appTune releases submitted to the iTunes store which it expects will be released by Christmas. Its future plans include releasing new Hi-Def appTune Videos and full albums by Spring 2010. It will also be available on Droid platform by the new year.

Joe Riehl, Metatron CEO, said, "This is a ground-breaking new product that we think will resonate with both the iTunes universe and the music industry in general. Both new and established bands are desperately seeking new ways to get their music and personalities to their fans, and the appTune now stands as the best digital source of multimedia interactive music content."
