iHookUp Social Completes Phase I Urban Airship Integration and Submits to Apple App Store

Leading Industry Provider to Enhance Monetization Opportunities

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 23, 2014) - iHookup Social, Inc. (OTC PINK: HKUP), a fully reporting public company and mobile/social app that enables singles and the socially active to instantly connect with local, real life 'hook-up' opportunities, is pleased to announce that it has submitted its next generation version of its iHookup Social app to the Apple App Store. The app breaks new ground for iHookup and its members as an array of new features based primarily around member-to-member connectivity will be deployed upon approval, boosting efforts to monetize hookup "Hot Spots" or locations and add advertising sponsors to the existing business model.

"This version of our app demonstrates what we believe is a critical brand separator for iHookup Social and further leverages our growing user base to extend our revenue model with the addition of sponsorship and advertising," stated Robert Rositano, CEO, iHookup Social. "Like others in the mobile/social dating space, we are intent on building upon our asset and our asset is users, facilitating connections for users, providing local hookup Hot Spots and continuing to advance our features allows us to scale. We see our customer lifecycle as perpetual and look to provide exciting opportunities for users well beyond the initial connection.

This new app immediately enhances the connectivity and quality of interaction we will now have with and among our user network," added Rositano. "But they also set the structural stage for a feature that we believe will provide a significant differentiation of iHookup Social in the early stages of 2015. Stay tuned."

The latest app's feature set includes the following:

  • NEW - Chat experience - Share Photos and Videos -- users can now share both photos and videos with other users while in chat
  • NEW - Hookup Spots - Updated nearby locations, events, restaurants, clubs -- available to share with other users while in chat mode
